“After losing out on hosting Quiet Lights by mere days due to renewed restrictions last year, we are excited (and a little nervous) to be bringing our little festival back to Cork this year. We’re very proud of our line-up of almost exclusively Irish-based talent as travel restrictions continue, but we do have Ichiko Aoba coming on tour from Japan, and we have a first for Quiet Lights – a new commission – with Cormac McCarthy writing for Nell Ní Chróinín and strings. We think there’s something for everyone and looking forward to seeing you at a show”
