Why does the Dublin-based music media discriminate against Cork musicians? Why did you not review Mark O’Leary’s concert at the Nordic Council music festival?
The performance he gave was outstanding, yet it’s Dublin’s third-rate Crash (Thrash!) Ensemble and Whispering (Withering!) Gallery who got all the credit, unjustly.
Having toured Europe with Paul Bley and played with the likes of Jack Dehohnette he will eventually make the breakthrough he deserves, albeit not in this Jackeen’s paradise.
