Caoilian Sherlock – folk-pop troubadouring from Cork
What you may need to know…
01. Shaker Hymn frontman and event-management magnate Caoilian Sherlock is venturing into solo territory.
02. Ploughing a melancholy, poppy folk furrow, reminiscent of Big Star among others, he’s already been busy on his own, including playing last year’s IndieCork festival and a number of support slots around Cork.
03. Streaming above is newly-released single I’ll Be a Fool for You, available on Bandcamp.
04. Catch himself and Dowry playing Mallow tomorrow as part of the Living Space Project music trail of the town, and in a more intimate gig setting Sunday evening at Gulpd Cafe in the Triskel in Cork. The duo will also have a Dublin leg on Saturday 13th at Thirty-Four.
Verdict: As warm and welcoming as his main outfit’s music, but vested with a voice and flair for lovelorn songcraft that’s all his own.
