CONNOLLY’S of Leap, the intimate 140 capacity venue nestled in a small seaside village, will soon welcome Memphis star, Valerie June, on Friday 14th July.
This will be Valerie’s debut performance at Connolly’s; she last thrilled locals in west Cork back in 2015 at the Clonakilty Guitar Festival.
June’s new LP The Order of Time is already being heralded as one of the best albums of 2017. The Guardian’s four-star review affirmed, “The album finds June full of childlike wonderment amid a gloriously ethereal atmosphere reminiscent of Van Morrison’s ‘Astral Weeks.’ When Bob Dylan was asked in a rare interview with The Guardian earlier this year, what he was listening to – his answer was also ‘Valerie June’.”
It is set to be a magical candle-lit performance at Connolly’s. Support on the night will come from Cork-born folk singer Tiz McNamara. A limited number of tickets, €25, are still available, book now at www.connollysofleap.com.
