Conor O'kane Band: Old Brown Bottle

February 22, 2020

Production Language English
Country of Origin United States
Description Conor has also performed in multiple Never Records. We met in Derry, Northern Ireland, when he was referred to me by curator Theo Simms of the Context Gallery. Conor has since performed in London, New Orleans, New York, Kansas City, and Brooklyn. In my opinion, he is one of the finest lyricists I have ever known. Conor teaches horticulture in Donegal and he brings me homemade wine whenever he visits. For this session he assembled a band featuring Stu Downes, Ezekiel Healy, and Heather Wagner. I love Conor’s opening poem celebrating his trip to NYC with his six-year-old son. We toasted the session with brown bottles of oak leaf wine that Conor had bottled 2 years ago and it was delicious.
