Clonakilty International Guitar Festival are proud to welcome back Marc Ribot to launch the 2018 festival on 21st January 2018 at De Barra’s, Clonakilty. Tickets on sale now.
Back in 2016 Marc Ribot wowed audiences at his CIGF debut. You can watch some of that performance here. Marc will be launching the CIGF18 festival, which will take place on 19th-23rd September 2018.
Rolling Stone points out that “Guitarist Marc Ribot helped Tom Waits refine a new, weird Americana on 1985's Rain Dogs, and since then he's become the go-to guitar guy for all kinds of roots-music adventurers: Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Elvis Costello, John Mellencamp.”
Marc has released over 20 albums under his own name over a 35 year career. Marc works regularly with Grammy award winning producer T Bone Burnett and NY composer John Zorn. He has also composed and performed on numerous film scores such as "Walk The Line” (Mangold), "The Kids Are All Right," and "The Departed" (Scorcese).
Additional recording credits include Neko Case, Diana Krall, Elton John/Leon Russell’s Marianne Faithful, Joe Henry, Allen Toussaint, Allen Ginsburg, Madeline Peyroux, Nora Jones, The Black Keys, and many others.
Clonakilty International Guitar Festival is run by a not-for-profit voluntary organisation of music lovers who strive to make it accessible to all with 80% of the shows entirely free. CIGF18 will takes place across the town of Clonakilty in pubs, libraries, campervans, churches, beaches and butcher shops from 19th- 23rd September 2018.
