Carlow Arts Festival 2022 – Interviews

O’Hara’s Quarter Late Night

As part of the lead up to the Carlow Arts Festival, I spoke to a number of the visiting artists appearing at the weekend gigs.

Looking forward to a great run of gigs at the weekend, not forgetting the amazing line up at Carlow Live and Local. It promises to be a cracking weekend of music. More details here

First up, I spoke with Malaki, heard his thoughtful approach to his music and got a hint of what’s to come.
