Bill Coleman was the support act to Ian Whitty at Cyprus Avenue about a month ago. I’ve seen him play in Cyprus Avenue before and also down at the Mitchelstown Music Festival this summer. As always he put on a great show and is well worth catching on his current gig round.

Sean Kelleher played support to Aaron Dillon in The Roundy recently. I don’t know much about him and I can’t find a website for him but he’s another one to keep an eye out for. Sometimes a support act isn’t up to much but he kept the crowd interested with his well-crafted songs.
I’m off to see David Kitt in the Savoy now.
Aaron Dillon played at The Roundy on Sunday November 4th last. You may not have heard of him yet but I think you will do in the future; his inimitable style is sure to get him noticed. Keep an eye out for his debut album which is coming out in early 2008. Although Sunday night is never the best time to go to a gig, it was one of the more enjoyable gigs I’ve been to in recent times: a nice relaxed evening with great music and atmosphere.
The poster for the event used one of my pictures from the Opera House when he supported Mick Flannery.
Check out the CorkGigs blog for some nice vids from the Opera House gig.

Update: Aaron Dillon is playing a few gigs over the next month, you can catch him in The Blackbird in Ballycotton on December 1st and he supports Mick Flannery again in the Everyman Palace on the 16th December.
