Marc O’Reilly added to the Looe Music Festival line-up

‘Tense folk-pop, full of lightening fingerpicking and classic Irish storytelling’ TimeOut London

With gritty sonic depth, Irish songwriter Marc O’Reilly attacks his muse with a bipolar verve that swings from reflection to sheer riotous joy. Backed by the tightest band in Christendom, rare and beautiful songs slam into wild blues fragments and effortlessly back to clean vocal harmonies.

“O’Reilly crafts his eclectic sound with no hint of affectation and imbues it with the kind of purity of emotional expression that proves genuinely moving in its sincerity.” –

With two critically acclaimed albums to date, ‘Human Herdings’ and ‘My Friend Marx’, O’Reilly has established himself as one of the most exciting artists within the folk/blues genre gaining comparisons with artists such as John Martyn and Bon Iver.

Marc has toured all over Europe including appearances at major festivals like Glastonbury, Electric Picnic, Beautiful Days, Shambala and Dranouter.

Performing in the harbour on Saturday 24th September.
