Ahead of released a new self-titled collaboration album with fellow Gloaming member Thomas Bartlett, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh joins the TPOE podcast to talk about how it was recorded, his journey in music, his own bespoke instrument the hardanger d'amore, improvising, and not having a phone.

TPOE 139: Mary Hickson (Sounds From A Safe Harbour)

Mary Hickson is the director of Sounds From A Safe Harbour festival, which returns to Cork city for its third edition from September 10-15, 2019, featuring the likes of Feist, Damien Rice, Efterklang, Thomas Bartlett and Caoimhin O Raghallaigh, and lots more. It's curated by Mary, alongside the Dessner brothers Aaron and Bryce, Enda Walsh and Cillian Murphy. I talked to Mary about the new Bon Iver album (she's worked with him on festivals and he appeared at Sounds From A Safe Harbour 2017), Cillian Murphy's musical potential, 37d03d festival in Berlin and beyond, and what to expect at Safe Harbour this year.

TPOE 138: Emilie Pine & Ian Maleney (Live at Crosstown Drift)

This week on the TPOE podcast is a live recording, from O'Mahony's of Watergrasshill during the Mystery Bus Tour of Crosstown Drift litfest, where I got to interview Emilie Pine (Notes to Self) and Ian Maleney (Minor Monuments) about writing their non-fiction books; Tramp Press, which published both of them; and what's next for both of them.

TPOE 137: Graham Sharpe (Knockanstockan)

Knockanstockan returns to Blessington, Co Wicklow on July 19-21, 2019 with another stellar lineup, from Mango, TPM and Powpig to Junior Brother, Soda Blonde and about 100 more. It's going to be an amazing weekend - and my first time going to Knockanstockan. So I thought I better get the down-low from music director Graham Sharpe about what to expect, how the festival survived, thrived, took a break in 2017 and came back better than ever in 2018. We also discuss Graham's tinnitus. See you in Wicklow. Knockanstockan.ie

TPOE 136: Dave Couse (A House)

A House are playing as A House Is Dead to perform I Am Still The Greatest this Saturday, June 29, at the National Concert Hall as they receive the NCH/Imro Trailblazer Award that was first awarded to Microdisney in 2018. Dave Couse and Fergal Bunbury are the sole remaining members and ahead of the show I talked to Couse, over his landline in Cavan, about why they're getting together for their first show since February 1997, how rehearsals are going, how he feels the songs have help up, music in Ireland and Dublin in the 80s and 90s, why they never (well, only once) sold out, his stint as a radio DJ on Today FM, and lots more.

TPOE 134: Mick Flannery

Mick Flannery is a busy boy at the moment - he's releasing his self-titled sixth studio album on July 5 and has collaborated to turn his 2007 album Evening Train into a musical of the same name for Cork Midsummer. It runs at the Everyman June 14-23. Synopsis: West Cork: Grace dreams of a new life far away from here as she waits for Luther; he's late. Again. Elsewhere in town, bartender Frank surrenders yet another paycheck to cover his reckless brother's gambling debts, while Luther promises Grace that by Christmas, he'll have made enough money to get them out of here. Before long, a high stakes game is underway in which everyone is a player, whether they like it or not. He talks to Zara Hedderman about how Evening Train (the musical) came about, making music with other songwriters, his journey in music, keeping things challenging and more.

TPOE 133: Vicky Langan (Open Ear Festival)

Vicky Langan is a Cork-based artist and is also involved in putting together the fourth edition of Open Ear Festival, which takes place on Sherkin Island, West Cork, this weekend, May 30 to June 2. It's a bit different to the music festival norm, which gives a platform to Irish artists involved in the experimental and electronic music scene. Tickets might still be available on openear.ie. I talked to Vicky about some of the acts playing this year's edition, what we can expect from her own set with Aaron Dilloway, how she got involved in Open Ear and what's involved in putting something like this together, her own music, It Takes a Village, Junior Brother and more.
