Cormac O’ Caoimh has just released the third single ,“There’s Gold There Somewhere”, from his “A New Season for Love” CD. The CD has been compared to A honeyed whiskey drink, a fine cognac on a cold winter’s eve, a warm woolly jumper, a colour – rich mahogany warm and beautiful and a water colour painting and received countless lovely and beautiful reviews from the UK, Canada, US, Slovenia and Ireland and of course the people’s republic of Cork.
Cormac, along with Colum Pettit and Fintan Lucy, provided the music for the Theatre performance of 100% Cork and finished the show singing “There’s gold there somewhere” which touched both the cast and audience of this special and thoughtful show.
100 people representing a cross section of Cork’s population were brought together to tell their stories on stage. In a once-in-a-lifetime theatre event, German documentary superstars Rimini Protokoll team created a living, breathing portrait of Cork on the Cork Opera House stage. The show was performed three times over the Midsummer Festival and the finale including Cormac performing “There’s Gold There Somewhere”. The song touched both the audience and the cast and crew members themselves and became, as one of the cast members described it, their “The soundtrack to this period of my life”
