James O’Connor & Band

15th December @ 10:00 pm - 16th December @ 1:00 am


Kavanaghs Bar and Venue are delighted to announce James O Connor and his back will be live in the courtyard this December. James O’Connor is an Irish folk singer-songwriter, performer and recording artist. Creatively influenced by traditional Irish folk music and country-blues artists like Willie Nelson, as well as more contemporary rock and indie groups such as Snow Patrol, Lumineers and Arcade Fire, O’Connor’s sound sits somewhere between folk and pop.
