Two Cork acts, Cormac O’Caoimh and The Lost Gecko, have teamed up to perform a fundraising gig at The Roundy Bar & Café, Cork this month in aid of Abbey’s Wish to Walk. The charity is aiming to raise enough funds for six-year-old Abbey McGeough to be able to travel to the US for surgery which will enable her to walk again.
Cormac O’Caoimh is a singer-songwriter and classical guitarist from Cork. He released his second solo CD “A New Season for Love” recently, which is currently receiving excellent reviews. He was chosen as Play Irish artist of the month and has been featured on the RTÉ 1 Show Arena. His intimate vocals and exquisite guitar playing is attracting the attention of musicians and music lovers alike. His latest single “Remember When We Didn’t Kiss” topped the iTunes download charts on its release.
Based in Cork, “The Lost Gecko” is the Scottish/Irish man Malcolm Urquhart, an acoustic guitar based act with cello, piano and bongos. His music is raw, heartfelt and melodic. Clever, touching and sometimes painful lyrics, each song is written for the audience to feel life and be inspired. The expressive and gritting vocals with the powerful melodies are skilfully blended to a profound flow.
The gig takes place in Roundy’s Bar on Thursday 27th February. Doors open at 8:45pm and admission is €5.
