- Freddie White
Tickets €22 plus booking fee Freddie White has long been synonymous with music of the highest quality. He has been part of the fabric of the live music scene in Ireland since the 1970s and his albums continue to sell well, amongst his loyal and newfound fan base. Born in Cobh, Co. Cork, into a musical family, by age 17 he was playing professionally. At 19, he moved to London, were he busked in subways, and developed his unique voice and guitar style. His earliest recordings, which were re-mastered and re-released in 2004, are still hugely popular among his loyal fan base. He will be in Triskel for one night only on Friday 10 May. “The sparse and haunting Live on Tour is still among the greatest Irish albums of all time. Do You Do swings and struts just as profoundly. Imagine those two cuts of vinyl made a decade ago, they still stand as perfection” (The Irish Times) In 1974, he was a founding member of Scullion, together with Philip King and Sonny Condell. Later he formed The Fake, regarded as one of the seminal Irish bands of the late 1970s. Next came The Freddie White Band formed in 1978, which toured with Eric Clapton that year.
- Jimmys Cousin
Jimmy’s Cousin writes an ambitious, melodic, close to the bone and very personal, blend of Jazz/Pop. Irish born, schooled in New York, detouring into multiple careers across Europe, Jimmy’s Cousin is an overnight success that’s 30 years in the making. His first demo was recorded in 1991, his first album, Waxwings, finally sees the light of day this month! Why the long delay? “I wanted to wait till I had something to say” Join us in Cork to hear what he has to say. His debut album is produced By Dave Keary whose guitar playing and musical direction with such acts as Van Morrison, Gregory Porter, Taj Mahal, Roger Daltrey and Bobby Womack, means that he brings a deep vein of musical pedigree to the arrangement and realisation of the songs of Jimmys’ Cousin. Tickets €20 available at Cyprus Avenue and via eventbrite.

- Silent Disco & The Bonk !! (Free Gigs)
Well lads ...... "Guess who's back, back again, Shady's back, tell a friend. I've created a monster, 'cause nobody wants to see Marshall no more, They want Shady, I'm chopped liver" .... well ok, it's just me 'Diarmuid, back from the dead!' Launching my hosting comeback at the ever brill Coughlan's Live Music Festival at Sat with the following 2 interesting gigs:- SILENT DISCO (11PM) Festival 2018 sees the return of the hugely popular ‘Silent Disco’ in the newly revamped Beer Garden. A Silent Disco is an immersive experience you will never forget, be surrounded by people dancing with wild abandon and singing with glee but apparently to no music. With 2 songs playing simultaneously on two separate channels so you listen to the music you really want to hear. If you don’t like the music from the first DJ just flick the switch and listen to the other. THE BONK (10:30PM) The Bonk is a broad-based musical project headed by Waterford songwriter and improviser Phil Christie (O Emperor). Gathering influences from 60’s garage, jazz and experimental pop, the band’s arrangements bring recursive rhythms and improvised melodies together in loose minimalist song forms. https://youtu.be/LwLoCBRWFCA Suggest we meet in the bar at around 9/9:30 pm Hope to see a few familiar and new faces there for what should be a great night :) Diarmuid[masked]

- China Crisis
The Venue crew is bringing another excellent act to launch itself on the Cork gig scene. China Crisis were a big name in the 80s with great hit singles such as 'Wishful Thinking' and 'Black Man Ray'. A show that will have so many good tunes with plenty of soul. A delight to see them playing in Cork again. Especially when I missed them previously! Tickets 20 euros from Ticketmaster.
