Callum McSherry - 7 March
An infectious blend of folk and world music from a rising star on the acoustic music scene. Callum's sound has been likened to seeing Mumford & Sons jamming with Peter Gabriel at a Dave Matthews gig! Plenty of energy and passion driven by sublime musicianship and songs for grown-ups.
Miriam Jones - 8 March 11:00
A small town British Columbia native, Miriam Jones has written and recorded on the Nova Scotia coast, in Nashville (her family heritage) and England where she has since settled.
Her new record ‘Between Green and Gone’ is a concise collection of poignant short stories in song form, narratives brought perfectly to life through a creative partnership with Simon Edwards (Fairground Attraction, Billy Bragg, David Gray), who as well as producing the new songs became the first member of a new touring ensemble.
GéNIA - 15 and 29 March
Described by The Times as 'an outstanding musician' and by Gramophone as 'a charismatic pianist', nominated by Caffè Nero as a featured classical artist of the month, GéNIA has a diverse repertoire and an enthralling stage presence. GéNIA was taught piano by her great-grandmother, the renowned pianist Regina Horowitz and went on to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Trinity College of Music.
As a performing artist GéNIA made a controversial and pioneering move away from the classical concert platform for number of years. She has collaborated with an eclectic range of artists and composers, particularly in the world of piano and electronics as an innovative composer and performer who has also crossed over into the world of pop music.
The Young Folk - St. Patrick's Day special
17 March 10:30 - 12:30
Widely-tipped Irish alt-folk band The Young Folk released their debut album ‘The Little Battle’ in the UK on September 8th 2014 on Pixie Pace Records.
The UK release of ‘The Little Battle’ follows the Dublin four-piece’s debut single ‘Way Home’, which received airplay from BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio Scotland, and the band’s first ever tour of the UK in May 2014.
Regularly packing-out some of Ireland's best concert venues, The Young Folk have already received plaudits from the Irish & UK press; The Evening Herald declared the band as “an accomplished musical aggregate that join the microdots between Villagers, Noah & The Whale and old Greenwich Village Kweskin Jug Band. This is folk in Cuban heels.” Hot Press described the band as “serious challengers for the area populated by the likes of Fleet Foxes, Mumford and Sons and The Low Anthem.”, while Maverick Magazine labeled the band as “One of the most promising Irish bands for decades”.
Paolo Morena - 20 March
He has that gift of being able to write songs that are very personal, and yet universal at the same time. Listen to Peace Of Mind, Mission In Me and Oh Yeah and you feel the emotion of the lyric – and then listen to tracks like Queen of The Party Scene and Saturday Night and you hear great story telling that puts a smile on your face.
George Montague - 22 March
Have you met George? This piano-hitting, string-twanging, gravity-defying singer songwriter multi-instrumentalist,is enthralling a global audience with his exciting live energy and countless contagious original songs - playing Rock, Pop, Soul, R&B on piano, guitar and ukulele; including live-sampling and looping his beatboxing and vocal harmonies.
