SongLives

Curated by Susan McKeown, SongLives brings the rich tradition of busking on Dublin’s Grafton Street to the wonderful intimacy and acoustics of the Donaghy Theatre. This unique concert series features both established artists, as well as up-and-comers, as they share their songs and stories with IAC audiences.

John Spillane and Eamon O'Tuama
Saturday, October 5 | 8 pm

John Spillane

“…some of the most skillfully crafted, vividly realized songs anyone has written in Ireland over the past dozen years.” Earle Hitchner, writer/reviewer for Irish Echo and The Wall Street Journal

Two-time Meteor award-winner and Cork native John Spillane is one of the most accomplished songwriters in Ireland today. Whether performing solo with guitar, with gentle accompaniment or with a full band before 100,000 audience members, John entertains, charms, and mesmerizes with his unique vocals—effortlessly flirting between beautiful poetry and roguish, irreverent Cork humor.


Eamon O'Tuama

“This guy is one to watch.” – Dirty Linen

Singer/songwriter Eamon O'Tuama is from Cork, Ireland, settled now in New York City. His career spans over twenty years, starting as a solo performer playing New York nightspots such as An Beal Bocht, the Sidewalk Cafe, CBGB's, and Sin E Cafe, later performing with a backing band that included drummer Chris Duignan, violinist Caroline Dutton, electric guitar player John Vignone, and bassist Donna Bender. A former member of The Prodigals, Eamon’s music skillfully and seamlessly combine the flavor of both Ireland and the United States and this performance will see his Celtic flavor, poet's soul, and often yearning lyrics, joined by New York City bass player Ed Kollar.

Past performers include Susan McKeown, Declan O’Rourke, Michael Brunnock, Brendan O’Shea, Mark Geary, Ann Scott, Niall Connolly, Wallis Bird, Anthony Mulcahy, Mundy, The Guggenheim Grotto, Jenna Nichols, Heathers, and Gerry Leonard.
