Martin Stephenson and the Daintees will be playing their landmark album Boat To Bolivia in its entirety to celebrate 30 years after its debut. It is an album that has, if anything, become even dearer to the hearts of those who first fell in love with it back in the day.
Always popular, Stephenson’s “must see” live performances are an exuberant tour-de- force combining heart-in-your-mouth intimacy with playful humour and warm self- deprecation. If you are new to this album or simply wish to remind yourself what a very special record this was and still is, then get yourself along to see Martin, John Steel (guitar), Chris Mordey (bass) and Kate Stephenson (drums).
Cormac O Caoimh released his 4th solo album “Shiny Silvery Things” in May of this year. It charted in the official IRMA charts and the first single reached over 3 million listeners in Ireland. His intimate vocals, magical melodies and exquisite guitar playing have always attracted very favourable appeal from Mojo, The Irish Times, HotPress, R2, Americana UK, OndaRock in Italy and many more.
"Acoustic Gems from the Cork singer-songwriter. Each song superglues to the memory." **** Mojo Magazine
**** "There are echoes of terrific songwriters here – the likes of Lloyd Cole, Paul Simon, Eels’ Mark E Everett, and Prefab Sprout’s Paddy McAloon filter through – but O Caoimh’s personalized worldview makes the material his own" - The Irish Times
Martin Stephenson and The Daintees play with support from Cormac O'Caoimh in St. Patrick's Gateway Centre Friday October 27th.
