Other musical gigs include New Yorkers Alarm Will Sound (6 June) performing the Irish premiere of John Cage’s music-theatre work Song Books; The Sound of Music (27 July-18 Aug), directed by Bryan Flynn; Efterklang (15 Sep); and Opera D’Arte (23 Sep) performing a diverse selection of operatic works.
Size2Shoes (15 July); Katie Kim (21 July); collaborators Hidden Highways and Peter Delaney (11 Aug); and Daniel Martin Moore (5 Sep) will all be on stage at the Half Moon Theatre.
There’s also the return of The Cave series (Thursday, 26 – Saturday, 28 July) at Mitchelstown Cave with artists this year being the Staves, Daniel Martin Moore, and Hidden Highways on the Thursday; Sam Amidon, Puzzle Muteson, and Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh on the Friday; and Iarla Ó Lionáird and Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, the Lost Brothers, and Sean MacErlaine and Donal Dineen on the Saturday.
The Cork Midsummer Festival features Fabulous Beast’s Rian (21-23 June) and the premiere of Dylan Tighe’s Record (22-30 June). Finally, another chance to see Myles O’Reilly’s film the Music Makers takes place on Saturday, 18 August in the Half Moon.
