Rank #2: TPOE 137: Graham Sharpe (Knockanstockan)

Podcast cover
Read more
Knockanstockan returns to Blessington, Co Wicklow on July 19-21, 2019 with another stellar lineup, from Mango, TPM and Powpig to Junior Brother, Soda Blonde and about 100 more. It's going to be an amazing weekend - and my first time going to Knockanstockan. So I thought I better get the down-low from music director Graham Sharpe about what to expect, how the festival survived, thrived, took a break in 2017 and came back better than ever in 2018. We also discuss Graham's tinnitus. See you in Wicklow. Knockanstockan.ie

Rank #5: TPOE 134: Mick Flannery

Podcast cover
Read more
Mick Flannery is a busy boy at the moment - he's releasing his self-titled sixth studio album on July 5 and has collaborated to turn his 2007 album Evening Train into a musical of the same name for Cork Midsummer. It runs at the Everyman June 14-23.

Synopsis: West Cork: Grace dreams of a new life far away from here as she waits for Luther; he's late. Again. Elsewhere in town, bartender Frank surrenders yet another paycheck to cover his reckless brother's gambling debts, while Luther promises Grace that by Christmas, he'll have made enough money to get them out of here. Before long, a high stakes game is underway in which everyone is a player, whether they like it or not.

He talks to Zara Hedderman about how Evening Train (the musical) came about, making music with other songwriters, his journey in music, keeping things challenging and more.

Podcast cover

Vicky Langan is a Cork-based artist and is also involved in putting together the fourth edition of Open Ear Festival, which takes place on Sherkin Island, West Cork, this weekend, May 30 to June 2. It's a bit different to the music festival norm, which gives a platform to Irish artists involved in the experimental and electronic music scene. Tickets might still be available on openear.ie. I talked to Vicky about some of the acts playing this year's edition, what we can expect from her own set with Aaron Dilloway, how she got involved in Open Ear and what's involved in putting something like this together, her own music, It Takes a Village, Junior Brother and more.
