Look at that for a touring itinerary.
Cork/Wexford-based promotion/booking company Merakindie has a March/April jaunt lined up for three solo artists: Paula Cox, Paul Creane and The Man Whom, with a long and detailed list of non-traditional performance spaces alongside venues and theatres in uncommonly-toured towns.
Writes Emma Kelly:
“Although not exclusive to non-traditional music venues, we are choosing to put on shows in those special local independently run businesses who are keen be involved and support the indie culture of Ireland. This tour is all about community and collaboration, and is reflected by the artists themselves, who will be singing on each other’s material. By doing things this way, we want to shine a positive light on independent Ireland.”
