Amanda Platt & The Honeycutters (USA) Thursday 23rd August 2018

Event Phone: 086 3389619

“In between the country-pop music of today and the gritty sound of yesterday you find The Honeycutters with a country-Americana sound that catches the ears of both the young and old. Musically, they make a traditional, honky-tonk-flavored sound bursting with driving rhythmic ambition, enchanting melodies and deeply poetic lyrics.” Alan Cackett, Maverick Magazine

Mary Coughlan & Band (IRE) Thursday 05th April 2018

Mary Coughlan is our greatest female singer because over thirty-three years and sixteen albums she’s made the most grown-up, uncompromising, wholly personal and utterly universal music on either side of the Atlantic.
Mary Coughlans first album, Tired and Emotional, sold 100,000 albums in Ireland in 1985, mainly off the back of plays on Mark Cagney’s “Nightrain” radio show.
She has recorded 15 more albums since then !


Rob Heron & The Teapad Orchestra (UK) Thursday 01st March 2018. SHOW CANCELLED DUE TO BAD WEATHER. REFUNDS AT POINT OF PURCHASE

Event Phone: 0863389619

Rob Heron play their own unique brand of Western Swing, Blues, Gypsy Jazz and Country, or “North Eastern Swing” as they’ve coined it. Influenced by early 20th century American music, with the addition of “razor-sharp” solos, great arrangements and original songs; their music harks back to a golden age whilst staying perfectly modern.


Scullion (IRE) Thursday 18th January 2018

Event Phone: 0863389619

Scullion is one of the best ever Irish “Folk/Rock” bands. They remain to this day an important, successful and highly influential band in Ireland.

2017 was a great year for Clonmel World Music – Thanks to you !

Clonmel World Music has had a very busy year. We have hosted 10 great shows this year. We have had 5 acts from Ireland, 2 bands from Canada, 3 bands from the USA, and we had our first Theatre Show in October of this year. We also held our first Festival in November of this year (thanks to Clonmel Credit Union for sponsorship for that)

We are delighted to be able to bring top quality acts to our little town in Tipperary, and this is only possible through people actually making the effort and going to shows; as we say at each gig “If you keep coming we’ll keep going !!! “

The Paperboys (CANADA)

The Paperboys music defies classification. It is Mexican Son Jarocho mixed in with Irish Jigs and Reels and a good dose of Country and Bluegrass. It is definitely FOLK music, and it has a deep respect and appreciation for tradition (Bluegrass, Old Time, Celtic) but it’s by no means Traditional. It is World Roots Music. One of the best multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, multi-generational, multi-lingual, multi-instrumental, genre bending band you will hear today!!

Daoiri Farrell (IRELAND)

Winner of two BBC Folk Awards 2017: The Horizon Award for best newcomer and Best Traditional Track. A former electrician, who decided to change profession after seeing Christy Moore perform on Irish TV, Dublin-born traditional singer and bouzouki player Daoirí (pronounced ‘Derry’) Farrell is being described by some of the biggest names in Irish folk music as one of most important singers to come out of Ireland in recent years, and has delivered the album to prove them right.
