In­ter­fer­ence Man Re­mem­bered

Hot Press - - Music News -

The life and mu­sic of the great Fer­gus O’Far­rell will be cel­e­brated in Cork Opera House (Fe­bru­ary 2) and Vicar St., Dublin (5).

Glen Hansard will be guest­ing with the band he fronted, In­ter­fer­ence, prior to his death in Fe­bru­ary this year from the ef­fects of mus­cu­lar dys­tro­phy.

Tick­ets priced €35 go on sale on Fri­day Novem­ber 4 with all pro­ceeds go­ing to Brú Colum­banus who provide ‘home from home’ ac­com­mo­da­tion in Cork for the rel­a­tives of se­ri­ously ill pa­tients.

In their 30 years to­gether, In­ter­fer­ence amassed a huge cult fol­low­ing but, with Fer­gus ill and lat­terly in a wheel­chair, weren’t able to par­take of the non-stop tour­ing that would have un­doubt­edly earned them main­stream suc­cess.
