Marc O Reilly | John Blek and The Rats
Cork based artist Marc O Reilly is riding the crest of a BIG wave. 2016 has seen him sign a deal with Virgin Records, his songs feature on Rolling Stone Germany, and he has just returned from an Eastern European tour. Backed by the tightest band in Christendom, rare and beautiful songs slam into wild blues fragments and effortlessly back to clean vocal harmonies. In short, Marc is pretty hot stuff, and you won’t want to miss this!
John Blek & The Rats are the band that keep on giving. They’ve gained a reputation nationally and internationally for their beautifully crafted songs, and for their stunning live shows. Raucous country one minute, haunting harmonies the next, John Blek & The Rats haven’t been described as ‘Defiantly knocking on the door of major international breakthrough’ for nothing.
Right Here, Right Now is a brand new Music Festival celebrating the vibrant and eclectic music scene in Cork city, presented by Cork Opera House and Coughlan’s Live Promotions. Packed full of amazing talent, bursting with creativity, we want to provide a space and a moment for the city to really take in what an incredible community of homegrown artists we have here on our doorstep… right here, right now.
