Islander have announced details of the fourth outing for Cork winter festival, Quiet Lights.

Set to return to various venues in the city across 18th-21st November, this year’s bill is another brilliantly curated affair featuring Lisa O’Neill, Junior Brother, Maija Sofia, Joshua Burnside, Trá Pháidín, Brigid Mae Power, Niamh Regan and more. Check out the full line-up below.

“After losing out on hosting Quiet Lights by mere days due to renewed restrictions last year, we are excited (and a little nervous) to be bringing our little festival back to Cork this year,” said festival director Jonathan Pearson.

“We’re very proud of our line-up of almost exclusively Irish-based talent as travel restrictions continue, but we do have Ichiko Aoba coming on tour from Japan, and we have a first for Quiet Lights – a new commission – with Cormac McCarthy writing for Nell Ní Chróinín and strings. We think there’s something for everyone and looking forward to seeing you at a show.”

Islander’s Marjie Kaley added: “We’re over the moon to be able to finally put on these gigs in front of real-life humans – coming together in venues is a tradition that was lost to us over the past two years. We’re so looking forward to sharing the music and magic of the artists on the line-up and celebrating in their warmth as winter draws in.”

Taking place at the likes of The Everyman, Triskel Christchurch and Crane Lane, tickets for Quiet Lights events can now be bought here. resized-image-Promo (100)
