“The little room with a massive heart announces big names for anniversary bash…”

Coughlan’s of Cork has revealed the line-up to the upcoming musical jamboree that, similar to the venue’s opening weekend last year, will take place over four days in September. A stand out on the Douglas Street spot’s listings is Meath minstrel Lisa Hannigan.

More acquainted these days with thousand-seater venues than intimate rooms, tickets for the Mercury Music Prize-nominated musician (for 2009’s solo debut release Sea Sew) are sure to disappear in a heartbeat for what is quite a coup for the festival organisers.

Fellow chart-stormers Wallis Bird and Cathy Davey will join Hannigan, The Man Whom, Elly O’Keeffe and a whole host of Cork talent (John Blek & The Rats,  Fred, The Hard Ground, Anna Mitchell, Lisa Canny & Conor O Sullivan and O Emperor – the latter via Waterford) for the venue’s annual shindig. Personally, the thoughts of catching the incredible Iarla O Lionaird & Steve Cooney play in a sitting room-esque atmosphere is mouth-watering enough all by its lonesome” www.thegmanblog.com
