Ethiopia Deaf Project are delighted to present this fundraiser by John Spillane.

Supporting act: Cuisle Avondhu.

When: 23rd of September at 8PM.

Where: The Courtyard at The Arches, Mallow.

John Spillane is a musician, songwriter, performer, recording artist, storyteller, poet and dreamer. Rooted in people, place and story, his music transports the listener and his live performances captivate audiences around the world.

As an artist his music appeals to listeners across many genres and generations. His vocal style has a unique almost sean-nós like quality and his performances shimmer with the magic realism that permeates many of his songs as he effortlessly flits between beautiful poetry tinged with melancholy to roguish, irreverent humour. John has the ability to charm, mesmerise and entertain in equal measure.

A native of Cork, the County he lovingly describes as “the centre of the universe” and a source of huge creative influence throughout his career. John’s music is inspired by and encapsulates Irish traditional music in its contemporary form – a reflection of Ireland today.

A two-time Meteor Award winner for Best Folk/Trad act John is one of the most accomplished songwriters in Ireland. With an extensive back catalogue beginning with the 1997 album The Wells of the World, his songs have been covered by Christy Moore, Sharon Shannon, Sean Keane and many others.

Twelve albums later in April 2021, John released his first independent album in 20 years, 100 Snow White Horses.

In October 2022, John released ‘In Another Light’ a career spanning album recorded live at the Right Here Right Now Festival recorded at Cork Opera House in November 2021.

Talent Show for EDP

Please help make this Christmas fun and exciting for the students and families of ALDS.

We are asking you to create fun videos of yourself and your friends for us to share with the students and families of ALDS on Ethiopian Christmas Day (January 7th).

Think of it like a talent show – but remember, your audience includes some people who are deaf so be creative in ways you can interpret your singing to keep your performance inclusive for all.

Try singing and signing, dancing, performance art, mime, magic tricks or anything else you can think of — we have some examples below to get you started.

Please note that all video submissions received will only be viewed by the members of the EDP organisation, the teachers and children at the ALDS and their families. The videos will be used for educational purposes. In no way will these videos be used outside of their intended purposes. Your privacy and security are of the upmost importance to us.
