EDISONS - Live in Mick Murphy's - June 30

EDISONS play Mick Murphy's, Ballymore Eustace, Co. Kildare, Monday June 30. Doors 8:30pm, Adm: €12

EDISONS is comprised of Pete Fagan, and Fran King -two superb Irish songwriters, and musicians.
Each having a long and credible musical pedigree, they came together to form this original outfit in 2013.
With a debut album, 'Little Bohemia' just released to critical acclaim, Edisons is a band with a contemporary Americana sound evocative of the landscape conjured up by album track 'Badlands'.
The album, I should point out, is a collection of songs inspired by the life, love, and death of notorious gangster John Dillinger at the Little Bohemia resort in Wisconsin, USA. Interesting inspiration; expertly realised, well crafted songs.

Highly recommended.

Clive Barnes - Live in Mick Murphy's

Clive Barnes plays Mick Murphy's, Ballymore Eustace, Co. Kildare, Monday June 23. Doors 8:30pm. Adm: €12 at the door.

Clive Barnes is one of Ireland's premier roots/blues/slide guitarist/songwriters. 
He has played all over the world and shared stages with Eric Bibb, Taj Mahal, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and many more.
His guitar work is super-accomplished, and, at times, dazzling; he is possessed of a deft songwriting ability, and his re-interpretations of old blues numbers, are faithful and progressive, in equal measure. 
Don't miss this great artiste at the height of his game.

Pat Coldrick - Classical Guitarist - Live in Mick Murphy's

Irish virtuoso Classical Guitarist, Pat Coldrick makes his welcome return to Mick Murphy's, Ballymore Eustace on Monday June 16.
Classical guitar as you probably haven't seen it before - engaging, absorbing, and thoroughly entertaining.

He has played to packed houses at home and abroad - filling the John Field Room in the National Concert Hall, and playing to large auditoriums across Europe, from Estonia, as far afield as St. Petersburg. He is highly regarded wherever he goes, and when you see and hear his performances, it'll be no surprise to you that he is.
You will be treated to a programme of classical pieces; re-interpretations of popular classics; and outstanding original compositions, one of which ('Lament') you can listen to below.
Highly recommended.
