A lively imagination that is deeply immersed in Cork City and County has helped him write over 200 songs.
He describes himself as a musician, songwriter, recording artist, story-teller, poet and dreamer. That’s a lot of character descriptions to have on your CV, but when it’s John Spillane you’re talking about, it’s not very surprising.
On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene sits down with the Cork balladeer to hear his story and his songs.
After his father died in 1962, his mother was left to rear five young boys. However, the West Cork relatives stepped in to help, and during his many visits to Colomane, music became very much a part of his rearing. The rest, as they say, is history.
