Event Details

As part of the 3 Rivers Rising weekend of traditional and folk music, the line-up of Cork-based artists includes illustrious singer-songwriter, John Spillane, Eoin Ó Riabhaigh & Friends, Trá Pháidín, who blend folk with psychedelic and experimental influences and Les Salamandas, an indie-folk duo based out of Ballydehob.

John Spillane is a musician, songwriter, performer, recording artist, storyteller, poet and dreamer. As an artist his music appeals to listeners across many genres and generations. His vocal style has a unique almost sean-nós like quality and his performances shimmer with the magic realism that permeates many of his songs as he effortlessly flits between beautiful poetry tinged with melancholy to roguish, irreverent humour. John has the ability to charm, mesmerise and entertain in equal measure. A two-time Meteor Award winner for Best Folk/Trad act John is one of the most accomplished songwriters in Ireland. With an extensive back catalogue beginning with the 1997 album, The Wells of the World, his songs have been covered by Christy Moore, Sharon Shannon, Seán Keane and many others. After a further twelve albums, John released his first independent album,100 Snow White Horses, in April 2021.

Piper Eoin Ó Riabhaigh will be joined by an impressive array of musicians including Conal Ó Gráda, Colm Murphy, Mary Green, Noel Shine, Tom Stephens, Aidan Coffey, Johnny McCarthy, Pat ‘Herring’ Ahern and Con Fáda.
