Mu­si­cian, song­writer, poet, dreamer: John Spil­lane is one of those artists whose can­vas is wide and colour­ful. Cork to his very fin­ger­tips, his songs have been bor­rowed by Christy Moore, Pauline Scan­lan and Karan Casey, among others. Spil­lane’s abil­ity to con­nect with his au­di­ences is leg­endary, and his store of songs con­tin­ues to grow. Lis­ten up for The Dance Of The Cherry Trees, Pas­sage West and Johnny Don’t Go To Ballincol­lig: all slices of the In­de­pen­dent Repub­lic at its best.
