‘Blind Poets’ Live at St. Mary’s Church Youghal

Cork’s very own Celtic Folk ensemble, Blind Poets, starting their second year together, have just released their EP and are currently finishing their debut album, launch planned for September.

Beautiful song-writing, skillful musicianship and five exceptional voices form the Blind Poets.  They are Niamh Murphy (piano and vocals), Karen O’Doherty (violin and vocals), Katie O’Neill (vocals), Leo Mullane (guitar and vocals) and Tom Jordan (clarinet and vocals).  When combined, they result in gorgeous traditional arrangements, which are rooted in Celtic Folk but unafraid to cross genres without compromising their ethereal tone.  It is no exaggeration to say Blind Poets are doing something wonderful and new in the world of Irish music.  Picture a cross between Fleetwood Mac and The Gloaming.

2018 saw the band impress audiences across the country, including prominent slots at All Together Now, The Cork Fold Festival and Galway’s Fringe.  They have released three singles to date (Arrow Shot, Balulalow and Luna Solera) which have been popular on RTÉ Radio 1, 2FM, Lyric FM and Today FM as well as numerous local stations.

Tickets €10.00 are available online atwww.themallartscentre.com or telephone bookings 087 9593276
