First Fortnight

16 January, 2020

at St Patrick's University Hospital


Cistin is our annual night of songs and stories with the First Fortnight festival, and our 2020 edition boasts another brilliant line-up of music and spoken word.

Our curator and host is renowned spoken word artist and First Fortnight ambassador, Stephen James Smith.

You can look forward to hearing from West Cork singer-songwriter Matilda O’Mahony, Glasgow's spoken word artist, Leyla Josephine, and Liverpool-based composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Úna Quinn, whose most recent music fuses a contemporary electronic approach with a folk sensibility. Úna will be accompanied by critically-acclaimed  multi-instrumentalist Neil Campbell. 

Meanwhile, Mongoose are returning to captivate the audience again with their jaw-dropping harmonies, after receiving acclaim for their album Suck The Wound, which saw the jazz-infused folk-pop group take their expansive, cinematic sound into brand new dimensions.

Cistin kicks off from 7pm on Thursday, 16 January, with booking available here.
