John Spillane set to return to Kildare

John Spillane

John Spillane is making a welcome return to Kildare on Saturday October 27.

The well known singer/songwriter will be playing a concert in Monasterevin Community Centre and will be joined on the night by Naas singer/songwriter Sive.

Spillane is a musician, songwriter, performer, recording artist, storyteller, poet, dreamer - a canvass filled with colour and brilliance.

His music transports the listener; his live performance captivates the audience. In a world filled with strife and upheaval, a time-out with John Spillane is enough to ease the load a bit on anyone lucky enough to bask in his light. The man and his music are pure magic.

October 2017 saw him celebrate 35 years of an ever-consistent vastly illuminating and exciting career within the world of music. Having sold over 100,000 albums in Ireland, John has also been awarded with two Meteor Irish Music Awards for ‘Best Act Folk’ and ‘Traditional’ act. His songs have been covered by many Irish folk lumineer’s such as Christy Moore, Sean Keane, Karan Casey, Pauline Scanlon, Solas, Mary Black, Méav, Sinéad Lohan and Sharon Shannon.

Tickets are priced at €15 and are available from Next to Library Cafe in Monasterevin  and www.eventbrite.ie
