EPISODE DESCRIPTION

This month Éist chats with Cork musician extraordinaire, John Spillane!

John Spillane is a musician like few others. His singular vision and unforgettable persona have endeared him to many a listener since his first musings and solo album, Wells of the World, in 1997. As his website states, 'in a world filled with strife and upheaval, a time-out with John Spillane is enough to ease the load a bit on anyone lucky enough to bask in his light.' Indeed, like.

In this, our first download of 2011, John chats about his early life and banking career in Cork, as well as his first bands, including a jazz outfit called The Stargazers! We chat about his 2003 Meteor award for Best Folk Act, the true story behind his hit single 'The Dunnes Stores Girl', plans for 2011, and as ever we've got our 'Ask the Artist' segment...plus you definitely won't want to miss the fascinating stories behind John's four chosen songs!

Songs featured:

1. Passage West
2. Lover's Leap
3. Cúnla (with Christy Moore)
4. Magic Nights in the Lobby Bar
