Ultan Conlon hails from East Galway, and music is in his blood.
Last Friday, Anne McLoughlin caught up with him on the phone, ahead of a big gig at Whelan’s in Dublin.
He talked about where good songs come from, about the difference between house concerts and venue gigs, and about the challenges of making it as a professional musician these days (clue: teaching music helps).
His current album is ‘The Last Days of the Night Owl’.
He’s playing Westport House on 18th May, and may also be playing in Claremorris over the summer. Watch this space!
