A new initiative from MA Songwriting introduces the
Sunset Concert Series, where visiting songwriters
perform a 45 minutes live set in the Tower Theatre,
starting at 5:30pm. These select performers will have
spent the day with our Songwriting students and end
the visit with a live set.
Admission is free and all are welcome.

John Spillane is a musician, songwriter, performer, recording
artist, storyteller, poet, dreamer – a canvass filled with colour
and brilliance. His music transports the listener; his live
performance captivates the audience.
Two-time Meteor award winner, John is one of the most
accomplished songwriters in Ireland today. Among those
who have covered his songs are Christy Moore, Karan Casey,
Pauline Scanlon, Cathy Ryan, Sharon Shannon, Sean Keane,
George Murphy, to name a few. He performs to audiences
large and small everywhere. Speaking about his upcoming
album John says it “marks the beginning of a new phase of
my career. My songwriting powers are coming into their own
now as I reach the grand old age of 58. Who’s gonna stop me
now like? ‘100 Snow White Horses’ will be my most beautiful
and magical collection yet”.
