Carole Nelson Trio presented by Limerick Jazz Society

Tickets €10

Tickets €10

Limerick Jazz Society presents:

Carole Nelson: piano, soprano saxophone, text

 Cormac O'Brien: bass   Dominic Mullen: drums

Long at the creative hub of multi-award winning Irish jazz group Zrazy, Carole now turns her attention to  exploration of the piano trio form. One Day In Winter is located in a particular space and time. Living between the River Barrow and the Blackstairs Mountains in Co. Carlow gave Carole both the physical and mental landscape for composition. The album traces the course of one winter's day, from before dawn to moonrise. In between, we are taken on a journey that describes a human landscape as much as a physical one – meditation, playfulness, wonder, contemplation of ageing and death, human warmth and companionship.

One Day In Winter was recorded in two days, often in first takes, capturing a freshness and a feeling of attentive presence. Throughout, the playing of all three musicians expresses the overarching conceptual coherence.

The opening track, Beata Viscera, is based on the 12th Century Pérotin composition. After a piano opening, Carole, Cormac and Dominic encounter each other as if from sleep, stretching gently into the music. Sun Rising Over The Blackstair takes an easy stroll through the changes, while Low Light Through Bare Trees brings delicacy, sparseness and a simple, rising melodic line to a more introspective piece.

 The mood shifts decisively in Snow Is Falling. Carole delivers spoken word text, written while snow-bound for ten days during the winter of 2010. Childlike joy at first snowfall, and a reference to Joyce's The Dead show up here, ending with a wild toboggan run of free-flying notes.

Flashes of light on water, glimpses of wildlife, movement on the riverbank are all expressed in the introduction to Cold Rushing River. The seven bar form creates a restless, unceasing flow to the music which ends by opening out into a wide rolling drum piece.

 

The World is Full Of Love sits at the centre of the album, poised and optimistic, before we take a turn of mood into The Sky Darkens. Inspired by the death of Leonard Cohen, Carole recites her adaptation of the Buddhist meditation on ageing and death. The quiet acceptance of  the text contrasts with the stormy anger of the music and ends with a soprano saxophone piece that follows the flight of a bird into the dying light.

 

The Silence In Between was the last piece recorded, an afterthought at the end of the session and it serves here to create a needed space after the intensity of the previous piece.  Loosely tethered to a shared time, the playing from all three musicians is freely improvised.

One Day In Winter draws towards a close with Stories By the Fire. We have a sense of different voices sharing the same cheerful conversation.Then one voice picks up the thread and runs with it, developing the theme. Moon Rising Over The Blackstair closes the album, elegant and elegiac.

Reviews

"The new Lost Brothers album Halfway Towards A Healing is a stunning masterpiece ...A superior thing...there shall be babies made throughout the darkened planet via this music...hypnotic ..."holy **** this is good...the end." Howe Gelb

"The Lost Brothers deliver a cinematic view of a landscape that is completely their own. It's roots music, but not as we know it. With their new album "Halfway Towards A Healing", their vision has become more honed, a sharper picture of their world- their finest work to date." Nick Power (The Coral)

 "The Lost Brothers harmonies are to die for, as near as a duo have got to the mastery of The Everlys and The Louvin Brothers' tender close harmony singing that I've heard anywhere near these shores."- Richard Hawley

"The new songs reach out like fingers across a warm night to calm a troubled browBeing tested, and in turn inspired to do and be better, has made this The Lost Brothers’ best album to date. The sorting out of life’s minor irritations, engaging with life’s major upsets, breathing in and breathing out, dealing with sorrow and embracing happiness – the rich, sometimes frayed fabric of merely existing imbues Halfway Towards A Healing with a truth rarely expressed." Tony Clayton Lea

The Losties are easily one of the best bands of the last ten years.  Everything good I could say about Simon and Garfunkel or the Everly Brothers could also be applied to the Lost Brothers. There is a darkness in their music without having to play brutally. If we must have our asses handed to us by a better band, I want that band to be the Lost Brothers.'' Dan Sartain (Third Man Records)

"These two softly spoken travellers are pioneering a unique species of Gothic-Country Storytelling that at first seems soothing, but soon hits your heart like a harpoon." Drew McConnell (Babyshambles, Fionn Regan)

“What I love about The Lost Brothers is how their songs often seem quite placid on the surface. Then one realizes just how depth-charged they truly are.” Paul Muldoon (Pulitzer Prize Winner)

"An exhilarating live show...The ability to make a large space feel so very intimate. Lost Brothers make a lasting impact" -The Huffington Post

"Once in a while you hear voices that stop you in your tracks. The Lost Brothers are the real deal. They have the most beautiful harmonies around, and what sets them apart is that they have the songs to back it up."  - Willy Vlautin (Author, Richmond Fontaine, The Delines)

"The Lost Brothers sound like the ghost of Hank Williams whispering a secret to the Everly Brothers." The Irish Times

"Otherworldly...sounds like the spirit of Nick Drake flickering in the firelight...spellbinding ." NME 8/10

"The Lost Brothers are so vital. Amid a scene which cloaks itself in a veil of authenticity, the group actually walk it like they talk it." Clash

"It's the dovetailing of the two voices that makes this special....compelling..." -The Guardian

We Come In Pieces - Stop The Rot - Album Launch

Tickets €6

Tickets €6

WCIP are Kieran Hayes (Vocals/Drums) Ciaran Culhane (Guitar/Moustache) and Kieran Sims (Bass/Vocals). They play loud music and have beards.

Formed in January 2010, they started gigging three days after their first practice, recorded their debut album three weeks later and took to every corner of the country to hone their energetic, high flying live show. They have played with the likes of Frank Turner, Tubelord, Throats, Maybeshewill and many other bands that they like to associate themselves with.

‘Before The Chains’ is a 32 minute long album that was produced for €600. The album deals with major sociological issues such as Die Hard, the shark from Jaws, blood and the effects of gangland crime on a modern urban landscape. It was released in late 2010 to absolutely no acclaim, by no record label, to a very limited amount of friends and family who pretend to care.

2011 will see the band escape from the confines of institutional education in a bid to take over the roads and live life as a fulltime (homeless) band.

THE STRANGLERS

The definative tour with special guest THERAPY?

The Stranglers will be hitting the road again in March 2018, this time with The Definitive
Tour.
With the vast catalogue of material that the Stranglers have in their recorded arsenal, it is
never easy to decide exactly which songs to bring together on record or perform live on tour but, in March 2018, the band will present their “Definitive” collection. The Definitive Tour is set to coincide with the planned re-release of their first seven albums (six studio and one live) originally issued on the UA and EMI/Liberty labels.
As always, audiences can expect to be swept up high on the wave of the Stranglers’
powerful sound during what is always an exhilarating live experience; pounding rhythms,
soaring melodies, quirky humour and thrillingly daring musicianship will come together again this March.
One of the UK’s most exciting, credible and influential British groups, the Stranglers are
riding high on the crest of a resurgent wave of popularity. They continue to thrive on the live circuit and their existing large and loyal fan base has swelled in recent years as new
converts join the ranks. With record-breaking, sell-out shows and festival appearances
throughout the UK and the rest of the world, public demand to hear and see the group has never been so high; true testament to their considerable musical talent and the enduring quality of their songs.
For the 2018 UK & Ireland tour, the Stranglers are also pleased to announce that Therapy? will be their special guests. One of the most uncompromising, creative and individualistic bands of their generation, Therapy? made a spectacular breakthrough in 1994 with their multi hit- spawning album, Troublegum, which clocked up a cool million sales worldwide. The group are expecting to release their 15 th album in early 2018 and have spent much of the past year persorming a series of critically-acclaimed acoustic dates.

Wyvern Lingo

Tickets €15

Tickets €15

Wyvern Lingo keep on moving ahead of the pack with the release of ‘Out Of My Hands’, their most candid, politicized song to date. Karen from the band says:

“Out of My Hands” was inspired by a man I met in a pub, the night of the Home Sweet Home / Occupy Nama demonstration. He was completely cynical towards activism. I tried to get inside his head, that mistrust and negativity on the refugee crisis, homelessness in Ireland, and the Repeal the 8th movement.

As a wise old Irishman once said: The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” ‘Out Of My Hands’ challenges both apathy and skepticism, and asks some difficult questions about our daily engagement, both political and personal, with the world around us.

‘Out Of My Hands’ comes smokin’ hot on the trail of the stereotype challenging radio smash ‘I Love You, Sadie’, as Wyvern Lingo once again show themselves to be the sharp social commentators that you can get down and dance to.

“Shiver-inducingly cathartic use of harmony – in each song it hits you afresh how electrifying the human voice can be.” - Golden Plec.

“ A compelling combination of pop, rock and R ‘N’ B that exudes plenty of passion and intensity.” - Pure M

“ An exceptional all-round musical talent.” - Coup De Main

"Pop trio Wyvern Lingo’s deeply structured vocal harmonies and palpable blend of organic sounds and pop-sensibilities has identified the three-piece as a band on the ascendancy.” The Last Mixed Tape

Limerick Jazz Society presents Sons of Kemet

Shabaka Hutchings: Saxophone, Theon Cross: Tuba, Tom Skinner: Drums, Eddie Hick: Drums
 
MOBO award-winners Sons of Kemet is a rambunctious double-drumming quartet led by
saxophonist/clarinettist Shabaka Hutchings, creating a revolutionary mix of jazz, rock, dub and
Caribbean folk.
Hutchings draws on a motley collection of influences, bringing links to early Caribbean and
Rastafarian music, Afrobeat rhythms and funky New Orleans brass into play. This intriguing
melting pot is fuelled by the voracious beats of the two drummers Tom Skinner and Eddie Hick,
overlaid with Theon Cross’s versatile tuba playing, which lends both bass and melody to the
tracks. Their eagerly awaited third record, Your Queen is a Reptile, will be released on 30 March
on the iconic Impulse! label.
This is jazz, but perhaps not as you know it. It’s fresh, accessible, loaded with cultural
capital…and you will dance.
 
“One of the hippest new UK bands... almost certain to dominate the ‘best of’ lists at the end of the year” - The Guardian
“I strongly urge you to go and see this band live” - Gilles Peterson

“Rasta rhythms, Middle-East and West-African melodies and straight-up rock Energy to the dance floor" - The Quietus

Stephanie Rainey

Tickets € 10

Tickets 10

Stephanie Rainey is the Irish singer songwriter who made the impossible happen. With no money, no manager, no contacts and no carefully calculated social media campaign, she created a music industry stampede of epidemic proportions with just one heart-stopping song – ‘Please Don’t Go’.

Within 24 hours of the song being uploaded onto Facebook, Stephanie – who had spent a decade trying to break into the music business - had more than a million hits (it quickly rose to five million views across both Facebook and YouTube), offers pouring in from US and UK record companies and world-wide media attention.

 

 

 


For the Cork-born singer it was a bitter sweet moment of triumph. The song was not just her last roll of the dice as an artist but it was sparked by the devastating loss of her one year old nephew, Fionn, from meningitis.

Coupled with a powerful, poignant lo-fi video for the song featuring friends – including her brother Dylan and the cult Irish comedian Cian Twomey - who had each suffered the loss of a loved one, holding up photographs and placards with messages of how each family member had died and what they wanted to say to them.

Stephanie – whose influences encompass Alison Krauss to Coldplay and Neil Young to Florence and The Machine - says: “I had absolutely no idea of the impact that one song and that one video we made would have.

“It was my last attempt to get my voice heard. But when I suddenly got all this attention from record companies I felt a weight of responsibility on me. This was about real loss, real people who I knew and loved. The song and the video had been made with absolute integrity. And I had to be doing this the right way for the right reasons. I wanted my songs to matter.”

Stephanie has the looks of a young Chrissie Hynde, the troubadour spirit of KT Tunstall and her songs lie in the emotional hinterland between Adele and Ed Sheeran. Her music is not about gloss and glamour but the grit and grind of the real world. Hers is a voice that is authentic and honest.

“I don’t write many love songs,” she says. “I write about other experiences whether it is loss, feeling insecure, trying to find out exactly who you are – songs that make a connection.”

Stephanie Rainey describes herself as “pure old school.” From growing up with a father who played her Bob Dylan and Neil Young, to falling in love with The Beatles and country music to spending her teens and early twenties performing in pubs, clubs and earning a crust in call centres and as a waitress. “I was completely hopeless trying to get people to buy Sky TV dishes or taking orders,” she says. “But every penny I could earn I would put into making music.”

Her early successes included performing in band contests in Canada, airplay for her self-released debut single, ‘The One’, attention from her mash up of Lorde’s ‘Royals’ and Massive Attack’s ‘Teardrop’ and getting to number three in the Irish charts with her DIY EP, ‘Half Of Me’.

But despite being told by music critics she was a special talent with a genius for songwriting, she struggled to make any impact in the industry. She says: “I left music college (Colaiste Stiofain Naofa in Cork) and all I wanted was to get attention from the industry. I just had no idea how you made it happen.“I spent years doing gigs, making my own music,creating a website, getting to know other musicians. I even went off to Los Angeles for a week, which was a big learning curve but a bit of a disaster because I didn’t really have a plan. “I felt I was running around making little dents everywhere but never breaking through. I was so lucky to have a supportive family and to be able to make money from guitar lessons to survive.

A visit to a friend in hospital sparked the memory of the death of her nephew, who had died ten years previously. She wrote the song ‘Please Don’t Go’ in a matter of hours then came up with her bravest idea for a video.

“I asked people I knew who had suffered loss to be in the video including my brother. We spent days filming it and they will remain some of the hardest but the most meaningful days of my life. The song is about my loss, their loss and I really wanted to tell their stories and to make an honest emotional connection.

“Just before I put out the video I remember getting so upset in my mum’s kitchen telling her I felt I had something important to say with what I was doing but that it was never going to be heard and that I was going to give up. ‘Please Don’t Go’ was my last attempt to say something and then I was done.

“But within a matter of days everything had changed. I was flown out to Los Angeles, to New York, these really big important record company people would ask me where my manager was, my team, my publicist. I had no-one. Just me and my boyfriend being thrown into these crazy situations. I was a lone wolf, a voice from a bedroom in Ireland. I think people found it hard to believe it.”

In the rush to sign this original artist a bidding war broke out between labels as the song pushed its way into the US iTunes charts. “It was absolute madness for a time,” she says. “I’m actually glad it came when I was that little bit older and I’d done my time banging my head against the wall. Not only did I really appreciate what was happening but I was incredibly sure about what I wanted and far more sure of myself as an artist and a person. I knew exactly what music I wanted to make. I knew the voice I wanted to be heard.”

Last year Stephanie signed to East West Records/Warner Music, opting for a deal which would give her the chance to develop her skills and collaborate with award winning songwriters, including Amy Wadge who has co-written with Ed Sheeran and won a Grammy for ‘Thinking Out Loud’.

Her first release is self-affirming anthem, ‘100 Like Me’ where Stephanie opens up about her battle with self-consciousness. Further tracks to look forward to include the raw and honest, ‘Sorry’ and the wonderfully uplifting, ‘Nothing Of You Left To Love.’

“The dream to make the best, most wicked music I can possibly make is actually happening for me,” she says. “I thought my dream was over and really it was only just beginning and I can’t wait. “

Willy Mason

Tickets €19

Tickets €19

With a sound that recalls Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash along with the cynicism of grunge and punk, nobody could believe wry singer/songwriter Willy Mason was only 19 when he appeared on the indie scene. Born and raised on Martha's Vineyard, Mason grew up with his parents' love of folk music. He loved it, too, but his teen years brought Nirvana and Rage Against the Machine into his life. Mason found their political and social messages much easier to identify with and soon combined folk's softer and looser delivery with the revolutionary attitude of his new heroes. Writing came easy now and the teenager had plenty of self-penned material ready when a family friend asked him to appear on his local radio show. As luck would have it, Sean Foley -- an associate of Conor Oberst and his band, Bright Eyes -- was driving through Cape Cod as Mason was on the air. Foley was captivated by Mason's song "Oxygen" and left his phone number at the radio station, setting off a chain of events that would have Oberst and Mason hanging out, doing gigs together, and touring America. With only three people in the audience, a gig at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas seemed a disaster until one of the three introduced himself as BBC DJ Zane Lowe. Lowe was also captivated by "Oxygen" and added it to his playlist when it appeared on Mason's debut, Where the Humans Eat, released by Team Love in 2004. Critics were positive about the album and unanimously shocked that the literate writer and performer of these songs was only 19. Tours with Rosanne Cash, My Morning Jacket, Evan Dando, Beth Orton, and labelmates Jenny Lewis & the Watson Twins increased the fan base and influenced the Astralwerks label to pick up the debut. Astralwerks reissued Where the Humans Eat in early 2006 with bonus tracks and videos added to the original album. That same year Mason assembled a band that included Nina Violet and cousin Zak Borden, and in 2007 his sophomore record, If the Ocean Gets Rough, came out, while a live set at the Austin City Limits festival soon followed. By 2008, two world tours had taken their toll and Mason sought respite back on Martha's Vineyard, only occasionally venturing further afield to play live. He returned to the public eye in 2012 with Carry On, an album produced in south London by Dan Carey which incorporated the use of digital rhythm tracks and electric guitars.

Jerry Fish

Tickets €20

Tickets €20

He’s one of Ireland’s most enigmatic and entertaining performers to the point where
Ireland’s biggest music and arts festival, the Electric Picnic have for the past five
years afforded him his very own stage.
An indie legend and ringmaster of exceptional renown, Jerry Fish has evolved into a
showman extraordinaire, capturing the hearts and minds of audiences all over with
his now legendary live shows, a unique live theatrical experience that dissolves all
boundaries between performer and audience.
Jerry Fish blasted onto the Music Scene in the 1990's touring the globe as front-man
of alternative rock outfit An Emotional Fish, the band who gave us the indie rock
anthem “Celebrate”
These days the name Jerry Fish is synonymous with Festivals, Carnival Sideshow,
Circus and Theatre.
Mr. Fish's genre bending and idiosyncratic style of entertainment has made him a
household name within the Irish Music industry. With two Platinum selling solo
albums, an MTV award and IRMA Music Award, and a reputation as a supreme and
spectacular showman.
In 2017 Jerry took his stranger-than-fiction life story to theatre audiences for the first
time at the Dublin Fringe festival; “The Songs & Tall Tales of Jerry Fish.”
Jerry is currently touring an intimate piano show, performing his favourite songs, old

and new from a career spanning over two decades as well as excerpts from his sell-
out fringe theatre show.

A highly charismatic performer who refuses to countenance audiences having
anything but a good time, accentuating the positive and bringing smiles to troubled
faces with his swaggering vocal, generous and infectious smile and that fantastic
vaudeville moustache.
A guaranteed up-lifting night out for all.

Brian Deady

Tickets €20 - ON SALE FRIDAY 9am

Tickets €20 - ON SALE FRIDAY 9am

Brian Deady had been something of a well kept secret at home in Ireland until his song Clap Both My Hands became one of the most played Irish songs of 2016 and reached No.1 in the Spotify UK Viral charts. His recent single ‘Get on My Knees’ has also featured in the hit American TV show ‘Lucifer’.

Conjuring up strong gospel influences, at times the Irishman sounds more like he was raised in the Deep South than as one of 10 kids in Cork and his rich, soulful voice comes with a contemporary R&B edge.
Here is an artist you can believe in and connect with. In a world where authenticity counts for so much, you’ll hear that Brian means and feels every word. 

"Bare-Knuckle and Remarkable" - The Sunday Times.★★★★

‘Eloise’ is another marquee stomper from the man who has been growing into his own role with confidence. Nialler9

The Stunning are on the road again. In May 2017 they released a brand new single "Brighten Up My Life" which has received over 1,000 plays on Irish radio. Another new single ‘Always You’ was released on Nov 10th with a new album to follow in March 2018. The Stunning formed in 1987 in Galway, Ireland. They had their first top twenty single a year later and two more top ten hits before their debut album hit the number one spot in 1990 and stayed there for 5 weeks. Over the next year or so, there were four more hit singles, followed by another number one album. They released a live album in '93 before splitting up a year later. Steve & Joe went on to form The Walls in 1998 and released three acclaimed albums. After an absence of almost ten years, The Stunning reformed to promote the re-issue of their debut album 'Paradise in the Picturehouse'. The subsequent 18-date tour turned out to be one of the highest grossing tours in Ireland of 2003. Just a few years ago, around 30,000 people turned out to see them play a free concert in their old hometown of Galway city, a testament to the timeless quality of their music

JOHN SMITH feat. Graham Hopkins( The Frames)

Tickets €14 ON SALE WED 9am

Tickets €14 ON SALE WED 9am

With five album releases in 11 years, most recently 2017’s 'Headlong', Essex-born, Devon-raised and Liverpool-grown John Smith’s reputation as an outstanding guitarist, singer and songwriter now extends far beyond the UK folk scene, as reflected by sideman credits including David Gray, Lisa Hannigan, Lianne La Havas, Cara Dillon and Joan Baez. 

Mentored by the late John Renbourn – to whom Headlong is dedicated - and compared as a singer to John Martyn and Ray Lamontagne, Smith has evolved his own transatlantic blend of fingerstyle and slide techniques, switching between acoustic and electric guitars in various tunings. 

His career has been built on a devoted grassroots following, made up of people willing to dig in to their pockets to take part in the communion of a song. He returns to Ireland for a seven-date tour, this time accompanied by famed Dublin drummer Graham Hopkins (The Frames, Glen Hansard)

SLOW RIOT

Seoda Shows proudly present SLOW RIOT

Limerick’s brooding post-punk quartet, Slow Riot infuse post-punk influences - Gang of Four, Television, Wire - with more contemporary bands such as Girl Band and Future of the Left. Formed of Niall Clancy (bass, vocals), Aaron Duff (guitars), Liam O'Connor (guitars) and Paul Cosgrave (drums), early demos of ‘Demons’ and ‘Cooper’s Dream’ were immediately praised by fans and caught the attention of London label Straight Lines Are Fine, who in the summer of 2015 recorded their sell-out debut EP ‘Cathedral’ at the Manic Street Preachers’ FASTER studio in Cardiff with Kevin Vanbergen (The Pixies, The Maccabees, Dinosaur Pile-Up, The La’s and Biffy Clyro). Since then the band has been hotly tipped by tastemakers both in Ireland and the UK, with Drowned In Sound, Q Magazine, The Line Of Best Fit, Hot Press and The Irish Times, amongst many others citing them for big things. Follow up single ‘Trophy Wife’ earned the band plaudits from Shaun Keaveny on the 6Music Breakfast Show, Radio X, Absolute and was a mainstay on the band’s native Today FM with DJ Paul McLoone declaring Slow Riot to be “my new favourite Irish band”, a proclamation he backed up by inviting the band in for a live session and booking them to open his stage at 2016’s Interlude Festival. McLoone has since broadcast one of the band's gigs live in it's entirety on his evening show. On the live front Slow Riot have been honing their craft supporting the likes of The Twilight Sad, Mission Of Burma and Girls Names. The band signed to London label Killing Moon for their single ‘Absent Dreams’ before returning to Straight Lines Are Fine for the follow-up, ‘Pink December’. The band are now writing their debut album.

Lee 'Scratch' Perry

Tickets €20

Tickets €20

Regarded with awe throughout the music world Lee “Scratch” Perry holds status as one of the most enduring and original reggae producers and artists of all time. From his early days in Kingston Jamaica through to his production of some Wailers classics and lots more, Perry’s innovative style marks him out as one of Reggaes true originals. He’s worked with everyone form The Skatalites to The Clash and he can even be credited with pairing Peter Tosh with Bob Marley and The Wailers. 

 

Sometimes credited with the invention of DUB his groundbreaking use of sound effects, echo reverb and rewind added a new dimension to Reggae. With thumping Bass and a tight knit backing band his live shows contain Bass heavy versions of classics such as “War Ina Babylon” “Chase the Devil” and even a lively version of “Exodus”. At the grand old age of 81 Lee “the Upsetter” Perry is still going strong, still touring Europe and beyond.  Indeed he’s celebrating his 82nd birthday this time around. His Irish shows last year we’re all sell-outs this coming March should be no different.

All Tvvins

All Tvvins

Tickets €24

Tickets €24

It’s not uncommon for bands to begin with grand dreams of future success, but for every realised ambition there are dozens that don’t progress beyond the practice room floor. When Conor Adams and Lar Kaye formed All Tvvins, their shared goal was to headline Dublin’s 1600-capacity Olympia Theatre – and that was achieved when they sold-out the venue last autumn, just weeks after their debut album ‘IIVV’ crashed into the Irish album charts at #2.
“To achieve that in two years was pretty special and a real validation point,” beams Conor. “Our parents could go, ok, you do music in real life!”
That sense of self-deprecation is never too far away from either All Tvvin, but they’re not the kind of people to ruminate too heavily on the long and often immensely challenging journey to get where they are today. Instead, being shortlisted for Album of the Year at the Choice Music Prize earlier this year symbolically closed the ‘IIVV’ chapter of their career.
It was an era full of events that must’ve seemed a world away back when they set that initial goal. Along the way, they have toured Europe, played SXSW, shared stages with Arcade Fire, Foals and Pixies; performed at the 2FM Xmas Ball in front of 15,000 people; amassed over 10 million spotify streams; and Lar was introduced to The Edge of U2 fame, who was not only “very humble and a really nice dude” but already knew All Tvvins’ music.
After a minimal break (Lar went to Iceland for a week, Conor chucked all of his equipment into his kitchen to create a makeshift studio), the duo soon “turbo-boosted” their writing process. Whereas they previously painstakingly crafted each song together, they instead found themselves creating almost completed ideas individually before allowing the other partner to put their stamp on it.
It was a very natural process, given that they’d spent months in each other’s pocket. “It was just an intense time, wasn’t it?” asks Conor of his bandmate.
“Yeah, it got too much,” agrees Lar.
“But,” laughs Conor, “we never killed each other! This new method of separating and just meeting up once or twice a week had an absolutely different result.”
Most of the new tracks emerged on piano and synths before being fleshed out into a band dynamic. Inspired by a whole world of influences, Lar describes them as being “varied and extreme” and “emotionally charged”, while Conor notes that his interest in keys means that he has barely even picked up his bass in months.
The first new track to be introduced to the world was “Alone Together” featuring James Vincent McMorrow earlier in June and the follow up track is “Anything” which will be released on 22nd September with Irish & European Touring news to follow soon after.

Support on the night comes from Cork man Tiz McNamara whose independent releases have racked up over 2 Million Spotify Plays, features in UK TV shows and gained huge support from BBC Radio 2, and Amazing Radio. Tiz also recently supported BRITS ‘Critics Choice Winner’ James Bay.

DAVID KITT proudly presented by Seoda Shows

Tickets €15

Tickets €15

DAVID KITT is an Irish musician/producer that crosses multiple genres. 

David's father and uncles formed a successful touring folk group when he was young so he grew up surrounded by music, and he himself began performing live sets while studying music technology at Trinity College, Dublin. He recorded and mixed the seven tracks of his debut release in his bedroom and this debut LP, the quietly magnetic 'Small Moments'(Rough Trade) was followed by the expansive ambient textures and looping pop mantras of 'The Big Romance'(Blanco y Negro, 2001); his biggest selling record.

During this period he extensively toured the UK and mainland Europe, gracing the stage with record collection heroes such as TELEVISION, YO LA TENGO, ARAB STRAP and TINDERSTICKS, and was invited by DAVID BOWIE to perform at the Bowie curated MELTDOWN Festival at Royal Festival Hall in 2002.

Then came 'Square One'(WEA) in 2003; the soundtrack to falling in love, and 'The Black & Red Notebook'(Rough Trade, 2005) which was, quite simply, a covers album. A snapshot tribute to a record collection, with fascinating gimmick-free Kitt-style workovers of SONIC YOUTH, THIN LIZZY, JJ CALE et al. 2006’s return to original material, 'Not Fade Away'(Rough Trade) captured an artist dealing with the post-relationship whirlwind of excess and contemplation.

His last album 'The Nightsaver'(2009), his sixth LP, was the result of two years of late-night experimentation caught in the reverie of writing and recording in a home studio at the top of a winding staircase somewhere along Dublin’s Grand Canal. Without any of the baggage of collaboration or record company influence he allowed his natural influences to filter through this collection of what are concise, modern pop-songs. The free-flowing nuances of disco, KRAFTWERK, 90’s house music, hip-hop of all eras and the evolving legacy of crafted synth-pop from HALL & OATES to JUNIOR BOYS can be heard throughout. 

Kitt’s seventh LP, “Yous” is set to be released March 9th, 2018, followed by an album launch tour.

Tickets €8 - on sale Friday feb 16th at 9am

Singer Shobsy, guitarist Joe Regan, drummer Paul Ridgeway and bassist Noel Perry all
met at BIMM Music College in Dublin. Bonding over a shared interest in classic 80’s music
and a common desire to write big stadium sized songs the guys decided to work on a
music project. This early incarnation lead to the formation of State Lights in 2015.
Considered Rising Stars for 2018, State Lights new single, “Peace Will Come” which was
mixed by Mark Needham (The Killers, Imagine Dragons) is accompanied by an incredibly
powerful video, it features images of the current political discourse in the world. Famous
faces such as Martin Luther King, David Bowie and Bono feature as examples of figures
who have paved the way for peace and understanding in a world that is constantly
overcoming prejudices and challenges, both socially and politically. The video concludes
with images of people holding their own banner saying, “PEACE WILL COME” with their
name signed, creating a message of unity, hope and faith that we will see peace. Some of
the featured faces include Liam Cunningham (actor) Patrick Bergin (actor), Gary Ringrose
(rugby player), Guggi (Artist), Kevin Thornton (Celebrity Chef), Craig Fitzgerald (The
Academic)

State Lights share powerful new single 'Peace Will Come'

 

Get to know State Lights

Shobsy: Lead singer
Shobsy volunteers every September to help the sick pilgrims on the Dublin Diocesan
Pilgrimage to Lourdes. (Truth, no fake news!) He always has been interested in
frontmanship ever since he was tiny. One Christmas when he was three, Shobsy asked
for a microphone and a stander& in his letter to Santa!
Paul: Drummer
Paul originally wanted to be a vocalist but got bored with the singing lessons! As a kid he
was more interested in BMX than the drums until Paul had a bad crash and the handle
bar went through his neck, ouch!
Joe: Guitarist
Before deciding that he wanted to go to BIMM and study music, Joe was very interested
in journalism, specifically music and film journalism. He used to write reviews of albums
that he loved, now the tables are turned. He also has a love the production side of music
and would like to do as much production work as possible. Joe has his own studio, Studio
CHR, located next to his home in Granard, Co. Longford. All State Lights music is
recorded there by themselves.
Noel: Bass
If Noel hadn't discovered the degree course in commercial modern music at BIMM
Dublin he would have gone to college to study architecture. He also has a couple of FAI
coaching badges and managed a local kids football team for three seasons before
moving to Dublin for college.

MACK FLEETWOOD

Ireland’s premier tribute to the Supergroup Fleetwood Mac, bring you on a magical musical journey from the Peter Green blues era to the multi-platinum selling Anglo/American band that still tour today.

Originally the “Best White Blues Band” to come out of the 60s, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac
had several memorable hits and influenced scores of others great bands that were to follow them, and/or cover their songs, such as Led Zeppelin and Santana.

When Peter Green left the band, Mick Fleetwood & John McVie kept the show on the road, being joined first by Christine Perfect (later McVie) and then Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks.

These three talented and prolific songwriters brought a distinctive style and unique fusion of rock, pop and country to the band. The turmoil of the bands private lives was played out in their music. Nicks & Buckingham soon gained iconic status in fronting the new line-up.

Fleetwood Mac enjoyed a rebirth, producing many classic hits including the outstanding Rumours album. They went on to even greater worldwide success than the original line-up.

MACK FLEETWOOD deliver a spellbinding show. Their love of the material and musical prowess shines through in each song.

They will bewitch you with authentic renditions all your favourite Fleetwood Mac hits.

Seattle Grunge Experience

Tickets €10 (€12 on the door)

Tickets €10 (€12 on the door)

The Seattle Grunge Experience is the only tribute act to authentically recreate the live sound of the four biggest Grunge bands in history: Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Alice in Chains.

The early 90s was a great time for music with so many creative, innovative bands breaking out from under the mainstream radar – and seemingly most of them from the Pacific Northwest. That’s where the idea for The Seattle Grunge Experience comes from as these bands, these songs were meant to be heard back to back!

The European experience of the genre was largely inspired by repeat plays on MTV where, on any given day, you could watch videos for ‘Smells like Teen Spirit’ followed by ‘Even Flow’…‘Black Hole Sun’…’Man In The Box’…’Hunger Strike’...’Come As You Are’...’Alive’…’Would?’… Then you had those seminal MTV Unplugged shows that unveiled this emerging scene as truly affecting for anyone with a television.

The Seattle Grunge Experience is not to be missed as they serve up the visceral punk power of Nirvana, the spiritual depth of Pearl Jam, the technical ability of Soundgarden and the fragile, edgy darkness of Alice in Chains. The end result is a musical feast that takes the listener back to the glory days of Grunge.

We deliver 2-hour ‘all killer, no filler’ sets in either Electric or Unplugged format (sometimes both!) celebrating the genre at its highest point and appealing to hard-core fans as well as more casual listeners.

King Kong Company

Tickets €25

Tickets €25

King Kong Company have “21st century swagger” (Irish Times) are “festival legends in the making” (Irish Examiner) and are the best live act in Ireland today (Pure M Awards). They take their get the f*ck up and dance show to Liva At The Big Top onMay 4th and ticket are on sale  February 9th at 9am.

That ‘festival legends in the making’ comment comes from a series of mind melting performances at Irish & UK festivals in the last year. There were 10,000 revellers screaming their hearts and lungs out at King Kong Company’s Electric Picnic mid-afternoon rave. There was the gig that set Townlands ablaze (literally) and what about that 2am slot at Body & Soul? If you can remember that, were you really there? This is the band that have their own Buckfast infused beer named ‘Commotion Lotion’, who played a private gig at Aaras An Uachtarain and asked the President of Ireland if he was ‘getting anything off that’, who took their award winning show on a 15 date tour of the UK and Ireland and where, on the final date at The Academy, there was a marriage proposal that went viral.

You don’t know what to expect at a King Kong Company gig, but in 2018 you’ll get a new show, with new music and an atmosphere like this…

Don and Rob celebrating 50 years on the road in Ireland

Two of Ireland’s best known rock/blues musicians have collaborated to record an album together and tour many of Ireland’s best known venues in 2018. Don Baker is known as a prolific singer/songwriter/musician for over 50 years and has had two number one singles    ‘Winner in You’ on the RTE label and ‘Inner City’  which was recorded by The Jolly Beggarmen.

He has also released a total of 15 albums during his career. As an actor Don is best known for his role  in ‘In the Name of the Father’ alongside Daniel Day Lewis, and also as  gangster Thomas Flynn in ‘Fair City’.

Rob Strong ,from Derry, on bass guitar and lead vocals, is another of Ireland’s Living Legends, who also has been performing for more than five decades!

Indeed Rob once turned down the opportunity to join the world famous ‘Deep Purple’. Rob also plays bass and sings, with his son, Andrew Strong, lead singer of ‘The Commitments, when they tour in Germany, Denmark and Sweden. Andrew has already agreed to guest on some of the shows as has another Irish Legend, Finbar Furey!

The band also features one of Ireland’s best keyboard players, Salvatore Urbano from Naples in Italy. ’Sal’ has also recorded with Damien Dempsey, Brian Kennedy ,Sinead O’ Connor and Eleanor McEvoy.

Tragedy: All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees & Beyond

LOUDWIRE: "one of the hottest bands on the internet...not just fun and catchy — Tragedy rules!"

ALL ABOUT THE ROCK: "far from being a novelty act, these guys are GENIUS. If they don't put a smile on your face, you must be dead inside"

Born out of the impenetrable divide of Disco and Metal, these fearsome brothers fearlessly obliterated the truce line that had been set in the great Disco/Metal Peace accord of 1977 when they seamlessly blended the two genres with their debut album, We Rock Sweet Balls and Can Do No Wrong - a collection of Bee Gees songs redone in a heavy metal treatment reminiscent of Judas Priest, Motley Crue and Guns N Roses. Since then, they have crisscrossed the globe with their spectacular live shows and having stormed across the USA, UK, Germany, Netherlands, France and Switzerland. Subsequent full length albums, Humbled By Our Greatness, Death To False Disco Metal, The Solo Albums and The Joy of Sex have seen them spread their glittered wings to take on non Bee Gees classics from the disco era, soft rock anthems and party jams.In 2015, Tragedy broke the internet with a viral video featuring their take on You're the One That I Want from the Grease soundtrack. In 2017, Tragedy's video for Stayin' Alive broke the internet once again.

If you're allergic to smiling be afraid... be very afraid. Tragedy sweats glitter and cums confetti!

****************************************************

Tragedy has headlined festival stages such as SXSW (USA), CMJ (USA), Musikfest (USA), Bloodstock (UK), Rebellion (UK), Summer Breeze (Germany), Foudrock (France), Motocultor (France), Glastonbudget (UK), Legends of Rock (UK) and Hammerfest/Hard Rock Hell (UK).

In her short career the talent of Amy Winehouse created a lasting impression on the music world of the 21 st century. Recording three critically acclaimed albums from her debut ‘Frank’ in 2003, the Grammy Award winning ‘Back to Black’ in 2007 and the posthumous ‘Lioness’ in 2011 along with the covers of ‘Cupid’ and ‘Valerie’ with Producer Mark Ronson no one can deny the talent and impact of this often misunderstood star. Lioness provide an authentic tribute to the precocious talent featuring TV’s ‘Stars in Their Eyes’ finalist Emma Wright as Amy Winehouse plus a full seven piece backing band to recreate the authentic sound of this heady mix of jazz, soul and pop. With a full stage show showcasing the talent of this songstress will take you on a journey through the emotional roller coaster of her song writing, guaranteed to have you singing and dancing along throughout the performance.

Don McLean

Tickets €48

Tickets €48

Legendary singer/songwriter, Don McLean, has amassed over 40 gold and platinum records world-wide and was inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in 2004.
Forever associated with his classic hits “American Pie” and “Vincent” (Starry, Starry Night), Don McLean is the original American Troubadour.
Following two sell out performances in 2015, University Concert Hall is delighted to welcome Don McLean back to Limerick in June 2018!

Don McLean’s first album had been turned down by several labels because of his insistence on retaining his own publishing, but Tapestry ’70 was issued on Media Arts, soon taken over by UA; of the songs “And I Love You So” was covered by Perry Como for a Top 30 hit ’73, while his performance of “Empty Chairs” inspired “Killing Me Softly With His Song” (written by Norman Gimbel and Charles Fox) a Grammy winner and a huge hit for Roberta Flack ’73.

Second album American Pie ’71 incl. irresistibly catchy title track, said to have been inspired by the death of Buddy Holly, but also a sentimental song about America that could be embraced by everybody as the USA reeled from Vietnam and Watergate: the 8.5 minute track as a two-sided single was no.1 for seven weeks and even pulled the first LP into the charts.   “Vincent/Castles In The Air” from the same LP was a no. 12 hit and “Vincent” (no.1 in the UK) was being played daily in the entrance to the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam. The rest is music history….

In 2004 Don McLean was inaugurated into the National Academy of Popular Music Songwriters’ Hall of Fame. His award was presented by Garth Brooks who paid this tribute:  “Don McLean his work, like the man himself is very deep and very compassionate. His pop anthem American Pie is a cultural phenomenon, and people are still trying to decode it after 35 years! He wrote other great songs like, And I Love You So, If We Try, Wonderful Baby, Winterwood, and my personal favorite Empty Chairs, which just kills me as a fan and a songwriter.”

In 2011 Don performed on the Pyramid Stage at the Glastonbury Festival  (“The veteran singer-songwriter’s take on “American Pie” , with multiple extra choruses, was another heartwarming, communal high” – The Independent).

Also in 2012 Don was awarded the BBC Folk Music Lifetime Achievement Award.

Presented by Dolans.

Hermitage Green

Tickets €30

Tickets 30

Hailing from Limerick, Ireland, Hermitage Green have made a large impact in a short period of time. After having released their first full length album via SONY Ireland and watching it climb the charts with tracks like Quicksand, Not Your Lover, and Save Your Soul, the band has been touring internationally to sold out rooms across Ireland, the UK, Middle East, Australia and the US.

Now the band is back after having spent months in world renowned Rockfield Studios in Wales where their new recordings share company with the likes of Queen, Robert Plant and many others.

With Grammy winning producer Matt Lawrence (Adele, Amy Winehouse, Mumford & Sons) at the helm of this record, the band has created an EP entitled Gold & Rust consisting of 6 progressive sonic masterpieces. 2018 will see the band continuing to tour the globe.

“Gold & Rust - the title was inspired by a lyric that Darragh Griffin wrote in the song 'Bring It On Down'. I suppose as an album title it represents the many contrasts of being in a band in 2017. The ups and downs, highs and lows, whatever you want to call it... From playing the mainstage at Electric Picnic, to getting laughed out the door of a bank when looking for a mortgage. From walking out of a sold out Olympia Theatre in Dublin, to playing to 7 people in a town somewhere in the U.S. From telling your bandmates you love them and would do anything for them, to trying to kill your bandmates because they piss you off sometimes. 'Gold & Rust' is the dichotomy between the struggle and the absolute privilege of doing what you love for a living"  - Dan Murphy of Hermitage Green

“captivating arrangements and elegiac charm”
London Evening Standard

“The Following Mountain is his first album of largely original compositions, and it provides constant, jolting surprises.”
The Guardian

Sam Amidon's third album for Nonesuch Records, 'The Following Mountain', is ostensibly his first of self-penned songs. But in his decade-long career as a recording artist, the singer and multi-instrumentalist has always managed to create work that's utterly original, even when, on previous discs, he was digging through the sounds and stories of traditional American music from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Though he cultivates the appearance of a folk singer with his shaggy hair, flannel shirts, and jeans, Amidon operates more like a freewheeling jazz improviser. He uses traditional material as a point of departure for his own melodic explorations; he reassembles time-worn lyrics into evocative new cut-and-pasted texts. On 'The Following Mountain', his affinity for the more experimental side of jazz, which he has admired as a fan since he was a teenager, explicitly informs these new pieces, several of which have their roots in an epic jam that Amidon and his long-time collaborator, the multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily, organized at a Brooklyn recording studio last spring.

Tickets €25 - On Sale Feb 16th at 10am

Bad Manners, composed of vocalist Buster Bloodvessel(born Douglas
Trendle), Louis Cook (guitar), David Farren(bass), Martin Stewart (keyboards),
Brian Tuitti (drums), Gus Herman (trumpet), Chris Kane (saxophone), and Andrew
Marson (saxophone), were one of the many bands to take their inspiration from the
Specials and the ska revival movement in England in the late '70s. They quickly
became the novelty favorites of the fad through their bald, enormous-bodied
frontman's silly on-stage antics, earning early exposure through 2-Tone Records
package tours and an appearance in the live documentary Dance Craze. In the early
80s, they managed several U.K. hits including 'Ne-Ne Na-Na Na-Na Nu-Nu', 'Lip
Up Fatty', 'Special Brew',and 'Can Can'

Walking On Cars

Tickets €47

Tickets €47

It's been nearly two years since Dingle natives Walking On Cars released their double platinum selling album 'Everything This Way', yet their music still picks up over half a million listeners on Spotify every month - a testament to the calibre and durability of their music. Globally, they've notched up nearly 100 Million streams of their music, not tomention over 36 Million Youtube views.

On release of the debut album back in January 2016, 'Everything This Way' went straight to #1 in Ireland and remained in the Top 10 chart for 31 consecutive weeks. Walking On Cars embarked on a tour that would see them play shows in the US, Australia, Dubai, Europe, the UK and multiple sold out shows across Ireland for the next 18 months.

Having completed headline shows in The Marquee, Cork and Royal Hospital, Kilmainham over the summer of 2017, it was time for the band to retreat to their home town, Dingle in Co. Kerry and take stock of the whirlwind they had just been through.

Returning to the place they wrote much of the first album, the band have started working on the follow up to the multi platinum debut release and are now ready to start introducing these new songs to the world.

Nervous - Double Platinum Single in Holland

Book Of Love - Double Platinum Single in Holland

150 Million Spotify Streams

Ireland’s Music Prize Award Winner for ‘Song Of The Year’

Breaking Artist Award 2016 - UK Music Business Worldwide

 

2016 was another year of widespread success for Gavin James. ‘Breaking Artist’ winner at the A&R Awards, the Spotify Spotlight Artist of 2016 also had wide support from tastemakers on BBC Radio 1, Apple’s Beats 1 and Radio X. The toweringly-tall, down-to-earth Dubliner with his heavenly voice, spine-tingling songs and habit of jumping into audiences has earned himself an army of devoted fans around the world.

The past year’s schedule was just as rammed as the previous years’. The sold-out shows – headline this time -began with a three-night run at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre and continued with Shepherd’s Bush Empire, Amsterdam’s Paradiso and LA’s The Troubadour. His crowning moment came at the 3 Arena in December, a raucous headline show at the sold-out the 15,000-capacity venue.

Gavin shows no sign of slowing down in 2017. The first half already booked up with headline tours in the UK, Ireland, Europe and America. His April appearance at The Forum in Kentish Town will be his largest headline performance in the UK to-date. He will also play his biggest Dutch show at the famous Heineken Music Hall on Oct 6th.

Gavin’s total Spotify streams are rapidly heading toward 200 Million making him the 175th most streamed act in the world and rising. His breakout hit Nervous, which has to-date achieved over 100 million streams collectively on Spotify, reached No.1 in Holland, Top 10 in Norway, France and Ireland, going multi-platinum in those and several other international markets. Nervous has undoubtedly cemented Gavin as one to watch in 2017. His newest single, I Don’t Know Why, is a fresh take on a track from 2016’s Bitter Pill, slated for release in February. According to Gavin, I Don’t Know Why, a song about young love, came to be in a rather interesting way.

 “I was working all day in the studio on some songs but nothing was coming out.  So, I met up with a friend and went out and got quite drunk, then came back home at 4 in the morning and started working on an idea. I woke up later that day with no recollection of recording at all and the song “I Don’t Know Why” was all there.”

Gavin has had an immensely successful couple of years. One of the most genuine and humble men in music, Gavin is unsurprisingly thrilled with the way things are going at the moment:

“I’m loving every minute of this. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted and I can’t wait to know what comes next.”

To understand why his past year was so fruitful you need a glance back at his relentless gigging past and recent studio album, Bitter Pill. The album achieved Platinum Top 5 sales in his native Ireland and reached the Top 5 of the album charts across Europe. He was also awarded Song of The Year for the album’s title track at the Choice Music Prizes.

Several songs from his first album Live at Whelan’s feature on Bitter Pill, benefitting from studio treatment, loving attention, and the grand setting they deserve. Gavin’s raw delivery remains, as does his powerful falsetto, but now there are strings, choir-like backing vocals and electric instruments that add drama to the up-tempo tracks.

“I’ve always wanted to hear how my songs would sound properly produced, but I didn’t want them to lose the edge they had live. We recorded the song Bitter Pill first and once we’d found the sound for that the rest was easy. The vocals haven’t really changed, the songs just became bigger. We got in some strings and someone to play piano. I mean, properly play, not like me, although I did insist on playing a little on a couple of songs.”

Though Biffy Clyro’s Simon Neil took over guitar duties on ‘22’ - a song to be aired in the hit TV drama Grey’s Anatomy in the UK on Feb 16th - the acoustic, electric and bass on the album were predominantly played by Gavin. He also provided the massed backing vocals on the recent single I Don’t Know Why and the epic Coming Home, the latter with assistance from his big sister Emma.

 “I got a few folk down to the studio to help with backing vocals on Coming Home, including my sister, who’s an amazing singer,” says Gavin. “I made everyone stand in different parts of the room to make it sound like a choir, then overdubbed their vocals about 50 times.”

“It was fucking cool to finally get to play electric guitar on record,” says Gavin, who recorded in London and L.A. with producers Fraser T. Smith (Adele, Sam Smith) and Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, Florence + The Machine).

Live at Whelan’s, Gavin’s first album, recorded at his local pub, brought him to the attention of Sony in Europe and Capitol in the States in January of 2015. No one fully anticipated that the live album would gain so much popularity in America, where its only cover, a haunting version of Magnetic Fields’ The Book Of Love, became a radio staple.

“The crazy bit is that The Book of Love wasn’t even supposed to be on the album,” says Gavin. “It was just my warm-up song. But when I’d finished the encore and the crowd was leaving, for some reason, I ran back on stage, called people back in and added it to my set.

“It was a real ‘fate’ moment. And funny – because I said I’d quit doing covers then my only cover takes off.”

In 2015 he lost count of how many gigs he played, he couldn’t tell you many countries he visited and doesn’t have a clue how few days off he got.

He appeared on American television shows Jimmy Kimmel, The Late Late Show with James Corden (twice!) and Dancing with Stars. His live album took off across the world, he supported his friend and fan Ed Sheeran for two nights at his hometown’s huge Croke Park (75,000) and to crown off a great year, he spent the summer supporting Sam Smith in the States and opened for Taylor Swift in Hyde Park.

His popularity is just reward for such a talented and tireless musician. The son of Dublin’s best-known postman – “I’m not kidding, everyone in the city knows my dad” – and a child-minding mum, Gavin grew up surrounded by music, not all of it to his taste. His dad played Cat Stevens, Sam Cooke, Bob Dylan and Van Halen round the house, his decade older brother, with whom he shared a room, relentlessly played rave.

Gavin’s great grandparents were opera singers and his granddad a stand-up comedian and whistler who appeared on TV in Ireland. Performing clearly in his blood, Gavin took up guitar at 13, learning Led Zeppelin covers and forming a three-piece rock band (minus a bassist), who played gigs in skate parks.

By 14, he was writing his own rock songs, which he stripped down to play on acoustic guitar with a mate. Still at school, the pair began getting their first paid gigs in pubs. Eventually the pair went their separate ways and for four years Gavin gigged non-stop. It was only a matter of time until it was his own songs 600 punters were turning up to howl back to every weekend, rather than his covers.

“It was insane, but great money and fantastic practice,” he says. “It taught me how to use my voice properly and perform for tough crowds. Folk were rowdy as fuck, crazy, drunk – they’d run on stage, try grabbing the mic or sitting on my lap. I started going in to the audience with my guitar to get them to shut up. If I wasn’t such a big guy, I wouldn’t have dared.”

He increased his focus on songwriting and playing and was rewarded in 2013, aged 21, when his independently released single Say Hello won the Meteor Choice Award for Song of The Year. An EP led to several of his songs become domestic radio hits. Though his success in Ireland didn’t immediately translate abroad, in recent years it is clear this has obviously changed enormously.

A strong proponent of anti-bullying campaigns, Gavin performed for The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Programme in December 2016, both at the 17th Anniversary Reception in Downing Street and at an intimate show in central London. The programme involves several different projects aimed at reducing bullying in schools – a cause very close to Gavin’s heart. His track ‘22’ explains his experiences of bullying in school.

Join Me in the Pines (aka Dave Geraghty of Bell X1)

Tickets €15

Tickets €15

Join Me In The Pines for a solo gig.

Multi-instrumentalist and songwriter David Geraghty has been a driving force behind Bell X1since the band’s inception 20 years ago, through seven studio albums, four of which went straight to No.1, extensive world tours, as well as opening for acts such as U2, Ed Sheeran, Tori Amos & Snow Patrol.

Geraghty’s solo debut ‘Kill Your Darlings’ (2007) was received with critical acclaim and was followed up in 2009 with the equally evocative ‘The Victory Dance’. David has been short-listed for accolades such as the Irish Meteor Award and the Choice Music Prize. In recent years he began composing music for Film & TV (productions that starred Aidan Gillan & Tom Vaughan-Lawlor). In 2014 Geraghty released his third solo album ‘Inherit’; but this time under the new project title ‘Join Me in the Pines’.

2018 marks a new chapter and a move away from the brooding dark folk of previous work and embracing instead joyous music with flashes of Prince, Bowie, Numan, Nile Rodgers.
