There's a revolution happening. And it's not going to be quiet.
Conceived at Clonakilty International Guitar Festival 2018 and birthed just before the biggest annual celebration of women in West Cork, Nollaig na mBan for Ovacare, The Kates took Clonakilty by storm.
Liz Clark (gtr), Eve Clague (elec gtr), Mide Houlihan (drums), Roisin Kilgannon (keys) and Paula K O'Brien (bass) are all musicians/songwriters in their own right but banded together to shine a spotlight on what contributions women make in a male dominated industry.
The Kates only play songs performed or written by women. They celebrate women who have come before them, blazed a trail and rocked the system.
Viva la revolution!
West Cork Ukulele Orchestra
The West Cork Ukulele Orchestra is comprised of 9 disparate musical talents brought together for one purpose: to rock the planet, ukulele-style! Leapfrogging over barriers of genre, time and taste, The WCUO plunder the last 60 years of musical awesomeness to put on a rip-roaring show full of lush harmonies and death-defying ukulele-playing.
Together since 2010 they have played throughout Ireland from sellout gigs in the Cork Opera House to Áras an Uachtaráin and every festival in between.
