There is a Light that Never Goes Out @ Kilkenny Arts Festival

Willie Meighan, the much-loved proprietor of Rollercoaster Records and a key figure in the city’s live music scene, passed away in November last year. For this special tribute concert the Festival brings together three talented acts, whose careers Willie championed in Kilkenny, for a night of celebration.

Yorkston/Thorne/Khan takes three musicians, Scottish singer-songwriter (James Yorkston), English jazz bassist (Jon Thorne) and Indian classical sarangi player (Suhail Yusuf Khan), and blends them into one startlingly original sound that celebrates music’s ability to transcend boundaries.

Lost Brothers Oisin Leech and Mark McCausland have been writing and recording together for more than a decade. Their delicate harmonies and the fragile beauty of their songs have drawn comparisons with Simon and Garfunkel and Bonnie Prince Billy.

Over the last few years Malojian (aka Stevie Scullion) has released four acclaimed albums ranging from laidback acoustic to trippy psychedelia, working with a series of musical legends including Steve Albini and Teenage Fanclub’s Gerry Love.
