We would like to inform you that we do not intend to host music gigs at the Inkwell Theatre in the forseeable future. We will of course have another look at the situation as things develop. No doubt we all feel frustrated and disappointed but it seems the right decision at this point in time.
We are delighted to welcome John Blek to the Inkwell Theatre stage once again!

Inkwell Theatre, Minane Bridge
Ticket: €15 plus booking fee
Tickets are also available in the XL Shop in Minane Bridge
The Embers Press Release
After the fires of love, lust, life and revolution have burned out the embers are all that remain. “The Embers” the new album from John Blek consists of 9 visceral songs. Reflections and memories from a time after the affair.
The Embers is the fifth solo long player from Cork’s John Blek. This time it was recorded in its entirety at Wavefield Recordings, Clonakilty with Brian Casey Producing/Engineering and musical contributions from Mick Flannery, Matthew Berrill (Ensemble Eriu) and Davie Ryan (Notify, Atlantic Arc Orchestra).
John Blek is much loved for his enthralling live show full of humour, pathos and his impassioned musical delivery. A master storyteller and a stunning fingerstyle guitar player. A must see act for 2020 and a true artist.
“The Embers” will see widespread release in Europe and the UK via K&F Records and Hometown Caravan and in Ireland via John’s own imprint We Are Rats Recordings (WARR). Available on digital, CD and gatefold 180gram Vinyl.
