Cocoons: On Tour

Brought to you by Liverpool Irish Festival
Grand Central Hall, 35 Renshaw Street, Liverpool, L1 2SF
Saturday 23 October – Sunday 24 October 2021, 6pm
Tickets: £12 per person | £10 concessions. Pre-booking essential

Following on from his solo show (at Royal Liverpool Philharmonic’s Music Room on Saturday 23 October), Matt picks up his other hat to host Cocoons, a weekly podcast in which he is joined by incredible artists from around the world. Together they explore stories and songs, exchanging memories and sharing (musical) notes.

Irish artists Matt McGinn and Cormac Neeson first curated Cocoons at the beginning of the lockdown in March 2020. Since then, it has supported performances from hundreds of incredible artists – Brian Kennedy, Mary Coughlan, Duke Special and JC Stewart, to name just four – and raised over £12,000 for charities hardest-hit by the pandemic.

Guesting will be BLÁNID, a Northern Irish Devonian, with a voice comparable to Kate Bush, Sinéad O’Connor and Joni Mitchell. With an unusual blend of interview and seisiún, historic surrounds and Festival set-up, this fresh indie-folk voice is not to be missed.

Also to be interviewed is KingFast a Liverpool-based, Jamaican-born Belfastian.

This will be a generous event, full of kind exchanges and warmth. A positive way to spend a Sunday evening with friends.
