Spillane Smokin!

We think John Spillane is fab, and we play him a LOT! His songs can be hysterical, deeply moving, and sometimes–truly profound. He is from Cork. VERY popular and easy to find. How many albums, now? We saw him years ago when he was just starting out, at the Spirit Store in Dundalk, one of Ireland’s great little venues. Big as ever. Still challenging, still fun, and still wonderful. This one is a great bit of craic and hysterical. He is, quite literally, impossible to define, except “purely Irish”.Up Cork!
