Hermitage Green confirm King John’s Castle return as new single is released
Dolans Presents and Shannon Heritage have announced the return of Limerick’s own Hermitage Green who are set to play a very special one-night only gig at King John’s Castle on Saturday, July 27th.
Partnering with Shannon Heritage, the Hermitage Green performance is another addition to the popular Live at King John’s Castle experience that is now seen as one of the Irish venue highlights amongst touring bands.
Hermitage Green’s upcoming summer gig at King John’s Castle coincides with the release of the band’s latest single which is set to be launched on Friday April 19th
Hermitage Green is recognised as one of the most popular bands to emerge from Limerick in recent years. The Limerick band has made a significant impact on the Irish music scene with their first full length album, released via the SONY Ireland label.
Their 2017 EP, ‘Gold and Rust’, was produced by Matt Lawrence (Adele, Amy Winehouse, Mumford & Sons) was received to critical acclaim. The band has developed a huge international following and has performed sell-out shows across Ireland, the UK, Middle East, Australia and the US.
From their early days performing on Limerick’s pub scene, Hermitage Green has evolved to become an influential band with an international following. Their unique arrangement of instruments that includes the bodhrán, djembe, rhythmic guitar and banjo sets them apart as a truly original offering of Irish Music.
The band features Barry Murphy, Dan Murphy, Darragh Griffin, Darragh Graham and Dermot Sheedy.
Speaking at today’s announcement, promoter Mick Dolan said: “Hermitage Green are a band that have been very loyal to Dolans down through the years. Their success is something we take great pride in.
The band’s previous King John’s Castle performance was a memorable one and we are delighted to be able to team up with Shannon Heritage once again to recreate this magic”.
Barry Murphy of Hermitage Green Delighted to be back “We are delighted to return to King Johns Castle for a hat rick of gigs in our favourite venue in the country. Last year’s gig was so special to us and something we will never forget and we look forward to bringing a whole new show back to Limerick city this summer”
Niall O’Callaghan, Managing Director at Shannon Heritage has welcomed this latest addition to the Live at King John’s Castle concert series.
“Shannon Heritage have focussed significantly over recent years to develop both the King John’s Castle visitor experience and to position the historic castle as a destination venue for a wide range of cultural events”, O’Callaghan says.
“We have seen a tremendous reaction to the Live at King John’s Castle concert offering and audience feedback has been consistently positive. To be in a position to welcome back Hermitage Green - a group of local lads who have made such an impact on the Irish music scene – is one we take great pride in. We look forward to welcoming the guys back to King John’s Castle in July and can guarantee audiences a night they will never forget”, he added.
