Above and Below the Tide
15 Nov. 2014 / ‘Above and below the Tide’ is music created by Dave McLoughlin featuring the wonderfully talented Anna Houston, Ray Coen, Bernard Tohill and Collette Sheerin. The album was released in July and this will be the groups second performance taking music from the album and new material. The music has been described as a marrying of folk, traditional, balkan, classical and rock. The evocative instrumental set gives the group a chance to show off their musicianship. Anna and Ray play with ‘No Crows’, while Bernard is involved in several bands including ‘The Blowins’ and Collette plays in ‘The Candles’. Dave composed the music over the years some of which was composed for dance performances Dave plays bouzouki and guitar with Anna adding haunting cello and lively mandolin, Ray is on fiddle and electric guitar, Bernard on acoustic guitar and Colette adds whistle and flute This promises to be an evening not to be missed.

Out of Towners: A Sligo Live Arrivals Event
26 Oct. 2014 / Let Out of Towners take you down a sun scorched road through the desert of Australia. The songs written by singer and guitarist Ollie Alcorn are inspired by years of travelling his homeland of Australia in a campervan and are a journey of his own experiences of this time. Leap forward a few years… Now a smooth sounding 4 piece folk and blues band based in Sligo, Ollie started playing accompanied by fellow ‘out of towner’ Robert Naczas on harmonica and ‘DaShtick’ (electric hurley stick). Dominic Callaghan and Brian F Devaney both joined later to complete their sound with bass and cajon. The band have recently released their debut EP called Day Dreaming, soon to be followed by a new video.
