Default John Spillane | Opera House gig

JOHN SPILLANE

Saturday 22nd April, 8pm

Cork Opera House

*

*

John Spillane returns to Cork Opera House on Saturday 22nd April fresh from his success at the 2006 Meteor Awards where he won Best Folk/Trad.

*

John’s latest album “Hey Dreamer” was released in April last year and was John's third solo album.* It went to number 4 in the Irish album charts on week of release and three weeks later it was still in the top ten. A sell out Irish tour followed, ending with a sell out show in Cork's Opera House.

*

John Spillane has also been busy writing songs for other artists.* Christy Moore, Karen Casey, Pauline Scanlon, Cathy Ryan, Sharon Shannon and Sean Keane are just some of the artists who have recorded songs written by John. Sean Keane has recorded three songs on his new album “The Valley of the Heart” while Sharon Shannon recorded “All the Way’s you Wander” on her latest album. George Murphy’s first single was a John Spillane song “The Moon Going Home” which was number 2 in the Irish charts for two weeks.

*

Along with song writing John is now the host of a new TV Series "Chúrsaí Ceoil" for RTE1 Television.* This show covers Irish music over the past 25 years.* John also has a weekly RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta programme.* This programme “Rogha” has won over a strong listener ship in recent times through his warm, friendly style and his eclectic mix of music, including Irish traditional and contemporary world music, snippets of lore and a regular poetry slot each week.* *

*

John is a native of Cork, the county he lovingly describes as 'the centre of the universe' and it has been a huge influence on this singer / songwriter. Vocally, Spillane is quite unique with an almost sean nos like element and has been described as having a voice 'full of honesty, commitment and sensitivity'.
