The Máirtín de Cógáin Project Concert is a group lead by Cork Renaissance man Máirtín de Cógáin, who is an entertainer of unending talent. A crowned All-Ireland Storytelling Champion twice over, a noted singer, a dancer and a heart-beating bodhrán (Irish drum) player, and actor, Máirtín has gathered a stable of the finest Irish-Yank musicians around him to bring the story of Cork to the States.
The show is entitled ‘From Cork with Love’ and brings the unique view of romance from the south of Ireland. Ballads of love, friendship, betrayal and a love-often-overlooked are often overlooked when they are from one’s own city, and the Project burnishes them to their original luster, all the while time poking fun at either side of the adventure. The night will have a few dance tunes and a story or two from the Corkman himself.”
The MdC Project’s CD, ‘From Cork with Love’, was recorded live at the Celtic Junction in Saint Paul, Minnesota with Norah Rendell and Brian Miller. The album was released in December 2010 and the DVD was released a year later, in 2011.
