John Blek Drive in Gig Kinsale Arts Weekend

Sunday, 12 July 2020, 6.00pm

With a voice that can go from an intimate whisper to a room rumbling roar Blek can steal an audience away. He claims to be a lifelong journeyman but is an incredible fingerstyle guitarist and a master storyteller.

His song Salt in the Water was nominated for “International Folk Song of the Year” at Folk Alliance International 2018 Awards and his current record Thistle & Thorn reached number 1 in the Independent Irish album charts.

John has an unrelenting will to create and travel with his music. He has released 4 albums in 4 years to much critical acclaim and tours extensively in Europe, UK and Ireland all year round.

This is a drive-in event allowing you to spend the duration of the event in the safe environment of your car.

There will be extra measures in place to ensure that the experience is in line with government guidelines. There will be no toilet facilities at the venue.

Tickets are priced at €20 + booking fee (up to 5 persons per car, total charge per car is €20).

There are limited spaces so book your tickets fast!

To ensure prompt start times you are asked to arrive 15 minutes prior to event to park your vehicle. Late arrivals cannot be facilitated due to the layout of the space. There will be no pedestrian access to the venue.

The audio will be available at a frequency that you will be able to tune into your car radio.
