Watch Myles O’Reilly’s “A City Under Quiet Lights”

The team behind Cork’s premiere fireside-folk festival, ‘Quiet Lights’, is very excited to present to the world the digital release of ‘A City Under Quiet Lights’.

Filmed over the course of 2021’s festival, A City Under Quiet Lights traces an outline of Cork City through performances by Lisa O’Neill, Joshua Burnside & Laura Quirke, Niamh Regan, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, Kate Ellis & Caimin Gilmore, Junior Brother and Rachael Lavelle.

The film, shot and directed by Myles O’Reilly, captures intimate, one-song performances by the artists in iconic spots all over Cork City, such as the a romp at the Shandon Bells, a flurry in Triskel Christchurch and a Lee-side song just under the Shaky Bridge.

A City Under Quiet Lights premiered at 2022’s Cork International Film Festival, screening again as part of a one-on-one installation during this year’s Sounds From A Safe Harbour.

Finding its way to the digital realm, this release paves the way for the reveal of another, as of yet unseen second Quiet Lights film that will be finding its way to the public soon!
