Mary has been the visionary in creating the Skerries Trad Weekend which started out in May 2001 as an intimate celebration of the best in traditional Irish music in Ireland. She then guided and nurtured the concept of the weekend from those humble beginnings right through to the renowned festival it is today while simultaneously planting Skerries firmly on the trad map of Ireland. The STW committee, both current and past, would like to extend our sincere thanks to Mary for her magnanimous dedication, experience and love of traditional Irish music, song and dance which she has brought not only to Skerries but indeed has passed on to everyone who has encountered her on her determined musical journey over the past two festival decades in reviving trad in Skerries, bringing top class performers to the town and passing on the tradition to the next generations.

She world could use more straight shooters. You won’t ever have to wonder about what LP is thinking. She’ll gladly tell you. In fact, the singer-songwriter lays all of her cards on the table every time she makes a record. The artist’s fifth full-length—the aptly titled Heart To Mouth [BMG/Vagrant]—stands out as her most direct statement yet. No filter, no censorship, and no bullshit – and she’s bringing it to The Olympia Theatre on the 21st May 2019!

Walking On Cars are creating sounds as beautiful and dramatic as the landscape that envelops them. From the Dingle Peninsula, the five creatives friendship gave way to a tuneful collaboration, borne out of a desire to write music. With songs reflecting both the isolation and consolation of Dingle, this year Walking On Cars look set to add to their increasing number of admirers. Singer Patrick Sheehy is comfortable to characterize their music with the ambiguous description “powerful and almost pop”. Pushing the sound higher, Sorcha Durham (pianist) and Dan Devane (lead guitar) give life to these Melodic imaginings. Paul Flannery on Bass guitar and drummer Evan Hadnett provide an intelligent and bodily support to their carefully crafted songs. Central to the house that they share is the rehearsal space, where each of The five can document song ideas at anytime – “ an advantage” of their environment and something not possible living in a city.

OH SEES THE BUTTON FACTORY 21st May 2019 Tickets on sale now Aiken Promotions and U:Mack proudly presents Oh Sees live at The Button Factory, 21st May 2019. Tickets on sale now! Oh Sees have spawned another frothy LP of head-destroying psych epics to grok and rock out to. You’ll notice the fresh dollop of organ and keyboard prowess courtesy of “Memory of a Cut Off Head” album and noted key-stabber Tom Dolas…the Quattrone/Rincon drum-corps polyrhythmic pulse continues to astound and pound in equal measure, buttressed by the nimble fingered bottom end of Sir Tim Hellman the Brave and the shred-heaven fret frying of John Dwyer, whilst Lady Brigid Dawson again graces the wax with her harmonic gifts. Aside from the familiar psych- scorch familiar to soggy pit denizens the world over, there’s a fresh heavy-prog vibe that fits like a worn-in jean jacket comfortably among hairpin metal turns and the familiar but no less horns-worthy guitar fireworks Dwyer’s made his calling card. Perhaps the most notable thing about Smote Reverser is the artistic restlessness underpinning its flights of fancy. Dwyer refuses to repeat himself and for someone with such a hectic release schedule, that stretching of aesthetic borders and […]

Grace Gifford hailing from a Dublin middle-class Unionist background falls in love with leading Irish revolutionary Joseph Plunkett. Both agree to marry on Easter Sunday 1916 but a rising against British Rule in Ireland has been planned for that very day. Plunkett is vital to the revolutionaries plans as he is the military director of operations. Grace while sympathising with his cause prefers to wait until the outcome of the rising before giving her hand in marriage. In some of the most incredible scenes ever staged, the rising is defeated and Plunkett along with his comrades are sentenced to death by execution shortly afterwards in Kilmainham Gaol. Grace and Joseph plead to marry in the small chapel in the prison that very night. Their wish is granted and after exchanging wedding vows in the dark damp confines of the prison chapel, Plunkett is taken out the next morning and executed. Their tragic love story to this very day has found a place in the nation’s heart. Set against the background of the Easter Rising 1916, Cunningham in his well-researched writing introduces us to the lesser known internal difficulties within the Irish Volunteers. Eoin McNeil, leader of the Volunteers struggles to […]

Since their last studio album, “Monterey” (ANTI- 2015), life has changed dramatically for The Milk Carton Kids. Pattengale has moved to, and is now producing records in Nashville. Ryan is now the father of two children and works as Creative Director on “Live from Here with Chris Thile,” the reboot of “A Prairie Home Companion.” A break from years of non-stop touring, Ryan says, has yielded “space outside of the band that gives us perspective on what the band is.” But it’s not just the addition of the band here that creates something new. National politics left Ryan feeling disoriented and mournful. Pattengale’s relationship of seven years ended, and he found himself unexpectedly needing surgery for cancer. (He is cancer-free now, and accidentally broke his cigarette habit in the process.)

Then It Fell Apart is a journey into the dark heart of fame and the demons that lurk beneath the bling and bluster of the celebrity lifestyle. In summer 1999, Moby released the album that defined the millennium, Play. Like generation-defining albums before it, Play was ubiquitous, and catapulted Moby to superstardom. Suddenly he was hanging out with David Bowie and Lou Reed, Christina Ricci and Madonna, taking ecstasy for breakfast (most days), drinking litres of vodka (every day), and sleeping with super models (infrequently). It was a diet that couldn’t last. And then it fell apart. ‘Somehow this chronicle of a long, dark night of the soul also involves funny stories involving Trump, Putin, and a truly baffling array of degenerates’ – Stephen Colbert.  Then It Fell Apart is a classic about the banality of fame. It is shocking, riotously entertaining, extreme, and unforgiving.

At the end of May, Snow Patrol released Wildness, their first album in seven years. Wildness taps into something raw and primitive. Lead-singer and songwriter Gary Lightbody says of the album: “There are many types of wildness, but I think it can be distilled into two: the wildness of the modern age, all its confusion, illogic and alienation and a more ancient wildness. Something primal, alive and beautiful that speaks to our true connectivity, our passion, our love, our communion with nature and each other. This is the kind of wildness the album is centered around. The loss of it. Trying to reconnect with it. To remember it.” To celebrate the release of Wildness, Snow Patrol debuted new music videos for A Youth Written in Fire, Life and Death, Wild Horses and A Dark Switch. The band has previously released music videos for Empress, What If This Is All The Love You Ever Get?, Life on Earth and Don’t Give In.

It’s the return of the European summer vacation! Following the attendance breaking indoor arena run that ended in May of this year, we are psyched to announce that we will be returning to Europe in May of next year to do an outdoor run of our own shows, primarily in stadiums, but also the occasional park and even a castle thrown in for good measure!

In her short career, the talent of Amy Winehouse created a lasting impression on the music world of the 21st 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 provides an authentic tribute to the precocious talent featuring TV’s ‘Stars in Their Eyes’ finalist and ‘X Factor’ boot-camp contestant Emma Wright as Amy Winehouse, plus a full 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. The band are made up of hand-picked experienced musicians, carefully selected to maintain the accuracy to the original performances of the UK’s brightest star that so tragically burned out in 2011.

For over 20 years, nothing has carried the energy, the sensuality and the spectacle of Riverdance. The worldwide phenomenon which is Riverdance began its journey as the interval act in the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest, produced for television by Moya Doherty.

With its fusion of Irish and International music and dance, the show broke all box office records during its world première run in Dublin and has continued to set new records in packed theatres and arenas throughout the world.

Despite a 15 year break while frontman, Peter Garrett, became a minister in the Australian Government, last year’s world tour saw the Oils in the same incendiary form which made them one of the world’s most captivating live experiences during the 1980’s and 1990’s. Intensely political songs like “Beds Are Burning”, “Blue Sky Mining” and “Power & The Passion” took on even greater urgency in the age of Trump and Brexit leaving critics gushing across five continents.

Great Music in Irish Houses, Ireland’s longest-established chamber music festival, was founded in Castletown House in 1970. Since then, the month of June has been a musical summer must for Irish chamber music devotees. Our objective was, and still is, to present concerts of chamber music, “the music of friends” in the sort of smaller, intimate spaces for which the music was originally written, away from the more formal setting of a concert hall. Over the years we have offered Irish audiences the opportunity to hear some of the finest international and Irish artists perform a vast range of chamber music in a variety of Ireland’s most historic and notable buildings, spaces that would not normally resound with beautiful and exciting music. Stately Irish Houses are juxtaposed with some of the country’s iconic, modern buildings showing the diversity of Irish architectural and interior design. From that small sapling planted in Castletown House, the great oak that is now the Great Music in Irish Houses Festival has grown and is recognised widely as a prestigious platform for world-class musicians. Royal Irish Academy, 19 Dawson Street National Botanic Gardens Killruddery House and Gardens Belvedere House & Gardens St Ann’s Church- Dawson St […]
