The team behind the Coughlan’s Live venue has partnered with Cork Opera House for a new festival dedicated to Cork city’s music community.

Announced for the weekend of April 28th to the 30th, Right Here Right Now takes in a broad spectrum of local sounds, headlined by singer-songwriter Jack O’Rourke. Having gigged steadily around the country the last few years. he’ll be performing his debut album Dreamcatcher accompanied by Cork Opera House Concert Orchestra.

Says Eibhlín Gleeson of the Opera House:

“For a while now we’ve been looking into ways to really be able to celebrate the diverse, thriving music scene in Cork. The city is packed full of amazing talent, bursting with creativity, and we wanted to provide a space and a moment for the city to really take in what an incredible community of homegrown artists we have on our doorstep. We’re delighted to be working with Coughlans Live Promotions, who are doing an incredible job in helping to develop and support artists from the ground up.”

Shows take place throughout the Opera House’s spaces, taking in the main auditorium, the stage-side Right Room, and the newly-opened Green Room space, facing Half Moon Street.
