Following on from his solo show (at the Phil’s Music Room on Sat 23 Oct), Matt picks up his other hat to host Cocoons, a weekly podcast in which he is joined by incredible artists from around the world. Together they explore stories and songs, exchanging memories and sharing (musical) notes.
Cocoons was first curated by Irish artists Matt McGinn and Cormac Neeson, at the beginning of the original lockdowns (March 2020). Since then, it has supported performances from hundreds of incredible artists (Brian Kennedy, Mary Coughlan, Duke Special and JC Stewart, to name just four) and raised over £12,000 for charities hardest-hit by the pandemic.
Guesting will be BLÁNID, a Northern Irish Devonian, with a voice that’s been compared to Kate Bush, Sinéad O’Connor and Joni Mitchell. Having released her debut album Fool’s Gold this year, this fresh indie-folk voice is not to be missed, in this usual blend of interview and seisiún; historic surrounds and Festival set-up. We are also expecting some local talent and Liverpool stories. This will be a generous event, full of kind exchanges and warmth; a positive way to spend a Sunday evening with friends.
