Doors 8pm, Show 8.15pm
Buoyed by the success of their debut EP Rose & Briar in 2015, and continuing support from respected musicians like Lisa Hannigan, Roy Harper and Glen Hansard; brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn, who form Ye Vagabonds, released their highly anticipated debut album to great critical acclaim. When Ye Vagabonds are in town you can expect harmony rich folk music, influenced by Irish traditional music, Appalachian singing, and the 1960's folk revival. Ye Vagabonds’ music is comprised of mellow melodies weaved with thoughtful lyrics, thickly layered with strings and droning harmonium.
The Murphy Beds
The Murphy Beds (Jefferson Hamer and Eamon O’Leary) present traditional and original folk songs with close harmonies and deft instrumental arrangements on bouzouki, guitar, and mandolin. They have performed and collaborated with artists across the folk spectrum including Beth Orton, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Anais Mitchell, and Sam Amidon.
“their great feat turns out to be taking what’s best of the classic Irish folk revival without falling into any of its clichés. The resulting album bears repeated listening from start to finish, with ten beautiful, crystalline songs.” –Huffington Post
