Joshua Burnside and PORTS / October 2017 English/Irish Tour

 
By on Friday, 11th August 2017 at 9:00 am
 

Two great talents from Northern Ireland will be coheadlining on a tour in October that will take them through England and Ireland. Joshua Burnside (pictured above) and band PORTS have different musical sensibilities, which I think makes for a good pairing. They’re alike enough that their own fans will likely take to the other act. Burnside released his album ‘Ephrata’ in May, and you can read Adam’s review of it here. The release of PORTS’ debut album ‘The Devil is a Songbird’ shortly followed Burnside’s; you can read about their album launch party in Derry through here. Tickets to the entire tour, whose English leg takes place in the first week of October and Irish leg follows on the last week of October, are on sale now.

By on Tuesday, 29th July 2014 at 4:00 pm
 

Soulful Irish songwriter Hozier has released another teaser for his highly anticipated debut album, which is scheduled for release on the 22nd of September. This live version of ‘In a Week’, sung as a duet with fellow Irish singer Karen Cowley, was recorded at Kilkenny Castle in Ireland and filmed by Feel Good Lost Media. (I was lucky enough to hear a live performance of the song earlier this year at SXSW 2014; read my thoughts on it here.)

You can view the video for for the earthy yet delicate live version of ‘In A Week’ below or at the dedicated Web site http://www.hozier-inaweek.com.

Live Gig Video: Hozier performs an acoustic version of ‘To Be Alone’ in Kilkenny

 
By on Thursday, 10th April 2014 at 4:00 pm
 

County Wicklow born singer/songwriter Hozier wowed the audience, including Carrie, at the Communion night at St. David’s church at SXSW 2014 last month. But this seems an even more appropriate venue for him to perform in: the Langton House Ballroom, where he filmed this acoustic performance of ‘To Be Alone’. Watch it below.

‘To Be Alone’ features on Hozier’s upcoming EP ‘From Eden’, out on the 28th of April on Rubyworks.
