Kieran Quinn

Joining Seán Rocks in our music studio is pianist Kieran Quinn. Kieran’s second album The Next One was released recently and he’s currently on tour across the country.

Many people may recognise his name from being part of the Sligo county football team for eight years. His career in Gaelic Football ended in 2008 and he has been working as a professional musician ever since.

Unfaithful Music and Disappearing Ink

Elvis Costello has just published a memoir Unfaithful Music and Disappearing Ink which looks at his songwriting and family life. This memoir includes dozens of images from his personal archive and offers his unique view of his unlikely and sometimes comical rise to international success. 

Roisin Dwyer has been reading it for us.
