A handy stocking filler for the music fan in your life…
The Lobby Bar on No 1 Union Quay was an iconic live music venue in Cork City, which closed its doors in 2005. This book tells the story of the music and people who passed through the Lobby Bar during its seventeen year existence. At one time there were four public houses neighbouring the Lobby, with music becoming a key element linking each venue by the 1990s.
The Lobby Bar – Music Through the Windows of Union Quay, Cork also delves back into the history of the musicians and venues that shaped the musical landscape of Cork. It is a book that celebrates, in words and pictures, the many magic nights of music in the Lobby Bar.

Come down and meet the folks is a brand new live music night at Fred Zeppelins in Cork, focussing on acoustic/americana/folk songwriters from Cork and further afield. Each night will feature performances from at least two acts with a special guest host taking charge of proceedings and perhaps spinning a yarn or two to go with a song of their own along the way.
The night kicks off on Thursday May 6th, with a feature performance from locally based Louth man Aaron Dillon and Band. “Songs of fear, loss, Religion, Injustice, love, protest, anger and joy. And the voice, poetic flair, melodic sensitivity and lyrical audacity to deliver all those emotions. The music skates on the fringes of numerous genres, folk, rock, bluegrass, pop and blues”. Joining Aaron and long-time collaborator Dave Hackett in their newly begun step up from acoustic duo to full band (Judas!), will be the established and highly praised rhythm section of Donal Linehen and Shane Murphy (Circus Cat/Together We Are Nobody).
Also playing on the night, following his well received recent opening set for Richard Hawley, is Seattle native James Eliot Taylor. James recently released his brilliant debut album ‘Sink or Swim’ as an online only download on the music website bandcamp.com free of charge, and has since followed this with the ‘Parallel Universe’ EP.
With both acts clearly bound for larger venues and local folk legend Hank Wedel our special guest host for the evening, this promises to be a wonderful night and modestly priced at a recession busting €5. The night will continue on May 20th with Lynda Cullen and Band and Peter Delaney, where again we invite you to come down and meet the folks.

Every Tuesday night Gavin Moore hosts the city sessions at the Woodford on Paul St. Gavin is an accomplished singer/songwriter in his own right, as well as belonging to a famous extended family including Christy Moore and Luka Bloom.
Each week starting at about 9pm guest musicians perform mostly acoustic solo sets, and usually conclude the night with a few collaborative numbers. The atmosphere is quite intimate yet laid back; the audience often subdued at first but more enthusiastic as the evening wears on (and the drinks are racked up).
My only complaint is the interference from noisy revellers in the other end of the bar when there’s a football match on TV. I’m not against watching football in pubs, but it’s a shame the management don’t switch off the TVs for a few hours on the one night every week that there are musicians performing live in the bar. Now that the Champions League has concluded we can hope for a short period of respite before the onset of the world cup!
The City Sessions is a great addition to the live music circuit in Cork, and having been running since February (I think?) it is quickly becoming a very popular — and did I mention free — weekly event. Get in early to grab good seats!
DÃ³nal has a few photos and a brief review from a few weeks ago here: http://donal.wordpress.com/2006/03/15/mick-flannery-at-the-acoustic-sessions/
Guest acts have so far included Ger Wolfe, Mick Flannery, Gavin Glass, Tadhg Cooke, Nell Bryden, John Leo Carter, Jennifer Clark, Myles O Reilly (Juno Falls), Tom Rogers, Ross Breen, Jim Barrett, Nicole Maguire, Hank Wedel, Sara Petite, Annette Buckley, Alan Tobin and Andy Wilson.
