Summer is officially here and we’re getting in on the fun with some fresh new folk acts to catch after the grand stretch in the evening!
Headlining on the night are Wexford twin brothers The Ocelots. With just a guitar, a harmonica and their voices, Brandon and Ashley have created a raw sound that has been generated from years of street performing all across Europe. They have crafted their songwriting and musical experience together to produce a forceful blend of rich harmonies and bare, raw acoustic folk. The Ocelots are known for their ability to capture an audience, with mesmerising melody and variety meeting their charm and wit on stage.
Support comes from folk singer/ songwriter Junior Brother. Hailing from Co. Kerry, he plays sometimes humorous, sometimes heady tunes. Strange stories, poetic and arcane, unfold with reckless abandon upon an idiosyncratic Guitar and Foot Tambourine accompaniment. Unique, experimental yet ambitious, his material draws heavily in tone and subject matter from his upbringing in rural Ireland, demonstrating a wild love of language.
Opening the show on the night is Tullamore native Eoin Martin who has spent the last number of years honing his craft and finding his own voice in the crowded singer-songwriter scene. And what a voice! Eoin mixes percussive acoustic guitar with complex finger picked melodies and rounds things off with a truly captivating vocal style, full of harmony and punctuated rhythms. Think Bon Iver and Newton Faulkner meeting up for a few sneaky pints.
Entry is FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE and doors are at 8:00pm. See you in the front row!
