Live in the White Horse

Thursday, 29th November, 2018 9:00am

A great array of top acts will play the White Horse music venue in Ballincollig in the build up to Christmas this year.

Upstairs at the White Horse gastropub, the intimate music venue has become a hot spot for national and international artists as well as theatre productions and comedy nights.

Kicking off the month of December are Lucia and Maria who will launch their new album 'Lucia and Maria – Live at the Chapel', on Thursday 6 December at 8pm. Combining their traditional, classical and folk influences, the duo of talented Cork violinists will be joined by special guest, award-winning folk singer-songwriter Emma Langford for a very special show.

Next up is the immensely talented Lisa Hannigan who plays the White Horse on Friday 7 December at 8.30pm. Lisa, who released her most recent album, 'At Swim', in 2016, has released three albums in total since she embarked on her successful solo career in 2007 having formerly played as part of Damien Rice’s band.

On Friday 14 December at 8.30pm the Black Sheep Comedy Club will present the sharp and cheeky wit of Dubliner Emma Doran. The uproarious mum of three has performed in Vicar Street and the Olympia Theatre and has been a regular on RTÉ television show 'Republic of Telly'.

One of the most exciting talents in Cork music is the soulful Jack O’Rourke who plays the White Horse on Saturday 15 December at 8.30pm. Jack has worked hard for many years perfecting his sound and released his debut album 'Dreamcatcher' in September 2016 and has since appeared on 'The Late Late Show'. More recently O’Rourke sold out his own headline show in Cork’s Everyman Theatre.

Next on the list is one of Ireland’s finest songwriters, Mick Flannery, who plays the White Horse on Friday 21 December at 8.30pm. The award winning Blarney native has released five albums to date and has sold out venues all over the country in a career that has taken him all over the world.

Finally, concluding the December line up is Brian Deady who has been making big moves in the charts in recent times. Deady’s single clap 'Both my Hands' was one of the most played songs in Ireland in 2016 reaching number one in the Spotify UK Viral charts.
