Josh Ritter

Following a string of outdoor, full-band rock and roll shows this summer (including Nowlan Park, Kilkenny with Bruce Springsteen), Josh Ritter returns to Ireland this December for a set of intimate, seated acoustic shows which will see him work in a trio format. Given that Josh’s latest album the Beast In It’s Tracks was acclaimed across the board for it’s intimate and stripped down sound, there’s probably never been a better time to see Josh in an acoustic format.

He plays Triskel Christchurch on Wed 4 December 2013.

Triskel Awarded by TripAdvisor

Triskel Christchurch in Cork has received a much coveted “Certificate of Excellence” from the online Tourism and Travel site for “the exceptional feedback” that the Cork based Arts Centre has earned from travellers and locals over the past year.

Triskel has been in existence for over 35 years, and has undergone many transformations during its history as one of the premiere venues in the country for showcasing Irish and International talent in the arts.

The latest transformation was the annexation of Christchurch to the Centre to create a new Concert hall and Arthouse Cinema in the city in 2011.

The new Arts Centre offers an Arthouse Cinema, regular concerts, readings and exhibitions within a complex that includes an 18th Century Church, restored by Cork City Council in 2011 and entrusted to Triskel to manage as a Cultural venue.

Since its reopening the Arts Centre has enjoyed a renewed energy and success which Director Tony Sheehan also ascribes to “the amazing group of people who operate together under the one roof”, including Plug Records, Corcadorca Theatre Development Centre and The Black Mariah Gallery.

Speaking about the Award Chairman of Triskel Liam Ronayne said “Everyone at Triskel has worked extremely hard during these difficult economic times to make sure that we provide local and visitor alike with access to the arts.  We’re delighted that this has been acknowledged by Tripadvisor”.
