The Poor Relation, Parnell Place
Approx. 90 minutes
#CorkLovesMusic, in association with First Music Contact (FMC) and Cork Midsummer Festival, presents the third in a series of talk and performance events, taking place throughout the year.
On the afternoon of the 22nd, Bunker Vinyl & Studio presents one-on-one music clinics with Angela Dorgan, CEO of First Music Contact (Hard Working Class Heroes, Music in Ireland). Open to the public, places strictly limited, application by email: email@example.com
On the evening of the 22nd, on stage at the Poor Relation on Parnell Place, we discuss everything to do with going live - getting booked, playing out, building yourself up, and getting ready for touring and the festival circuit. Joining us will be Cork-based independent tour booker Emma Kelly and tour manager/artist liaison Jonathan Pearson, with two more speakers to be announced in the coming days.
This unique collaboration is designed to offer career advice from FMC, inspiration and network opportunities through the talks and panels, as well as the opportunity to discover the wealth of talent in Cork’s Music scene on a regular basis.
