ARBORIST (Mark McCambridge) makes his debut BAG appearance at Mick Murphy's Bar, Ballymore Eustace, Co Kildare, on Monday, April 9th. Doors open at 8:30pm. Admission is €12 at the door. Patrons are advised to arrive early to avoid disappointment.
I saw Arborist for the first time last December, opening for Malojian in Kilkenny's Set Theatre. I was hugely impressed with the material, and the charasmatic, yet understated stage presence. I knew immediately that I had to bring him to Ballymore, and I'm delighted to be able to do so. R.T.
ARBORIST released their debut album, 'Home Burial', in November 2016 to critical acclaim. UNCUT 8/10 “A staggering debut of depth and substance", ★★★★ The Guardian "A Man of My Age feels like an instant classic" and ★★★★ Mojo "A deliciously self-assured collection."

Mark McCambridge played his first show as ARBORIST in 2014 supporting James Yorkston. A solo tour of Ireland followed before impressive performances led to notable support slots alongside Low, Cat Power, Echo and The Bunnymen and Guy Garvey.
Since the release of their debut single "Twisted Arrow" in 2015, Arborist have become somewhat cult properties, thanks in no small part to KIM DEAL (Pixies, The Breeders) contributing delicate harmonies to the song. A nonchalant and thoughtful piece of Americana, conceived in Belfast, it premiered on Stereogum and The Line of Best Fit with extensive play on BBC 6 Music. It was also featured in The Guardian Guide’s tracks of the week.
They are set to record their sophomore LP in 2018.
