The Curious Hand is that rare thing in folk: original, self-contained and unencumbered by the genre

- Mojo Magazine

 

Seamus Fogarty's most recent album, The Curious Hand, produced by Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Wild Beasts), was desribed by Q Magazine 'an album of modern folk songs embroidered with bursts of electronica', and featured on most of the knowledgable end-of-year lists in 2017. Lauded by both press and public alike, it is an album in which Fogarty's adopted home city of London provides the canvas for the wide-ranging palette of colour utilised by his colourful tales and varied soundscapes.

 

The Curious Hand is a treasure trove of noises and stories from a man with plenty to say

- The Irish Times

 

A native of Mayo, Seamus has resided in London for many years and his songs reflect the experiences of both places. His early releases, Ducks and Drakes & God Damn You, Mountain, grabbed the attention of legendary independent label, Domino Records, who signed him up and released The Curious Hand, which according to The Guardian is full of 'magical journeys through fable and modern life and back again'. Seamus, accompanied by his band, kick off their European tour with this Subterranean Sounds/Imagine Festival gig. It is sure to be one of the musical highlights of the festival.

 

An understated gem of an album

- Herald Scotland

 

Opening act, Shane Barry has just finished his new album, The Night Post. It is, as we have come to expect from Barry, packed with Wilcoesque, hook-laden tunes and catchy choruses.

 

Constantly unwinds and uncoils, taking us on magical journeys through fable and modern life and back again, often in the same song’ 

- The Guardian
