A stalwart of Cork Folk & Traditional music, Timmy the Brit was one of the founders of the Cork Folk Festival. Probably more noted for his set dancing, and teaching of same, a concert, featuring the cream of Cork folk musicians, to honour Timmy and to celebrate his huge contribution to the living traditional music and dance scene in Cork is being held on Sunday Apr 29th at the Oliver Plunkett. It’s not the Donkey, like, but it’s an afternoon gig which means you’ll be back well before closing time!!! Line up below;
Saturday next, 29th, sees none other than Jimmy Crowley play a few songs at the Donk. Jimmy’s been a part of the Cork, and indeed further afield, music scene for more years than he’d care to remember and has recently returned from another European tour of La Zenia.
He’ll be kicking off about ten. Keep an eye out for some Cobhies in the clip below.
