Official tourism website for Cork, Ireland

Carsie Blanton is a songwriter with hooks, chutzpah, and revolutionary optimism. “It is possible to face the world as it is - rapidly heating, ruled by grifters, ravaged by profitable wars - and still have hope,” she says of her forthcoming release, After the Revolution. “Not the narrow, grasping hope you might hang on an election, but a patient, zoomed-out hope.”

Blanton is known for her 2020 tribute to John Prine, Fishin’ With You, which landed her on the lineup for the sold-out Vicar Street Celebration of John Prine in 2023.

After the Revolution, produced by Grammy-winner Tyler Chester, comes out in March ‘24 and will be preceded by five singles. Blanton will return for a headline tour of Ireland in April ‘24.
