SJ’s new collaboration with Nuala Kennedy (The Alt, Orialla: vocals, flute) and Trevor Hutchinson (Lúnasa, ex-The Waterboys: bass) has its world premiere as part of Highlanes Gallery’s Nano Reid exhibition in Drogheda.
The band will perform within Reid’s ADAMANTINE with some contemporary reflections on it.
The blurb: The trio’s repertoire reflects both their deep grounding in the tradition and a questing love of the urban and rural music of Nuala and SJ’s home county of Louth, blending traditional song with new original compositions.
LWG’s first single, “High Germany”, was recorded entirely during lockdown at all three members’ homes in Ennis, Drogheda and Dublin. It was an immediate hit with folk presenters on BBC Radio Ulster, BBC Scotland, RTÉ Radio 1 and Radio na Gaeltachta among others. Tickets €10, with advance booking advised.
Tickets are available here.
