Forged in the blue heat of the Lee Delta, the Floating Opera is a meeting of the minds and hearts of some of Cork’s most thoughtful musicians. Concentrating on a carefully chosen repertoire of blues inspired songs, the band strives for a groove and expressive style that searches for soul in every corner. Built around the immaculate vocals of Áine Whelan - Johnny Campbell (bass), Paul Seymour (keyboards), Hal O’Neill (guitar), Jerry Fehily (drums) and John O’Connor (sax) bring a century or so of professional dues paying to the table.

Floating Opera’s members’ credits range from the bands of Rory Gallagher, Chuck Berry, Maura O’Connell, Stargazers, Hot House Flowers, Tom Robinson, Josh Ritter and many others. The band comes together several times each year, when the members’ busy professional schedules allow, and have toured throughout Ireland and performed on RTE television and radio. This month sees the Floating Opera going into the recording studio to finish an album due for release before the summer.
