Description

Bandfield - Mardyke 300 music concerts

2019 marks the 300th anniversary of the construction of the public recreation area of the Mardyke in Cork city. To mark this unique moment in the city’s history, the Glucksman invited artist Deirdre Breen to create a large scale artwork at the site of the original bandstand in front of the UCC Ceremonial Gates on Western Road. A free programme of music events are planned for the coming months that celebrate the Mardyke’s long history as a civic space and venue for outdoor performances.

SHOOKRAH kick off our musical programme with an evening of funk, R&B and soul at Fitzgerald’s Park on July 25.

SHOOKRAH are a 5-piece outfit from Cork, serving fresh helpings of synth-grooves, interruptive hooks and dystopian romance-themed songs. Their sound sits somewhere between neo-soul and the emerging schools of R&B/Soul that define themselves as ‘Future Soul’. Advancing from accolade to accolade (awarded 'Best Irish Band of 2017' and '50 People to watch in 2018' by The Irish Times), Shookrah are positioning themselves as important pioneers in the blossoming urban music scene in Ireland with their debut album set for release this summer 2019.

Bandfield and the mardyke 300 celebrations are supported by Cork City Council.
