2019 marks the 300th anniversary of the construction of the public recreation area of the Mardyke in Cork city. To mark this unique moment in the city’s history, the Glucksman invited artist Deirdre Breen to create a large scale artwork at the site of the original bandstand in front of the UCC Ceremonial Gates on Western Road. A free programme of music events are planned for the coming months that celebrate the Mardyke’s long history as a civic space and venue for outdoor performances.The talented young rap artists representing The Kabin Studio, YWIC (The Hut), Music Generation Cork city and GMCBeats will bring their fun and energetic raps and beats to Fitzgerald’s Park on Friday 20 September for a lunchtime concert. The Kabin Studio, supported by Music Generation Cork City, is a non-profit community space that has grown out of a love for hip hop, and original music. The Studio believes in a holistic approach that includes the facilitation of music workshops, and the recording and production of original songs.
