Cork singer/songwriter Cormac O'Caoimh is about release his fourth solo record, 'Shiny Silvery Things' on May 12th. As part of the release, he plays three CD Launch gigs in Cork, Dublin, and, firstly, Ballymore Acoustic Gigs in Ballymore Eustace! This rather special evening will take place on Monday, May 8th, in Mick Murphy's, Ballymore Eustace, Co. Kildare.
Admission, at just €12, includes a copy of the new CD. Doors open at 8:30pm for a 9pm show.
This is a terrific new record, from one of Ireland's most innovative and individual songwriters. Early reviews have been highly complimentary:
"Rich, rewarding exemplars of mature, observational songwriting, as though The Smiths had actually grown up and become responsible adults. Shiny Silvery Things positively rings with brightness and charm in a jewel encrusted trinket box full of delightful vignettes and new-found-sounds. There are so many standout tracks that it seems pointless to try to separate them in a spurious order of merit, so I won’t try." - 1380 Radio Recommends
"hidden depths and lyrical touches that make the listener sit up and take notice...melancholy and joyous, at once catchy and thoughtful." -Americana UK
“In time of constant change, certainties remain. Among them is the music of Cormac O Caoimh.. hook laden songs, superficial simplicity disguising thoughtful compositions, lyrically deep explorations and that all important personal touch that reflects O Caoimh’s music… varied, finely painted and ever-widening illustrations” - Folkwords
