Folk group NoCrows will perform at the final session of the Tullamore Club
Tullamore Club Sessions will host the dynamic folk band NoCrows on Friday 30 September.
Formed in 2005 in the multicultural melting pot of the Sligo music scene, NoCrows’ growing output of original material reflects its diverse musical roots, from traditional Irish music to Latin rumba, classical, jazz, rock and Balkan music.
Audiences were amazed by the band’s original repertoire, from delicate Irish tunes to Russian gypsy mayhem, from Catalan jota to original songs in many styles with lush string arrangements. The musical mix reflects the folk traditions of the different members but also the musicians’ life experience in many musical genres.
NoCrows has a history of musical collaborations over the years. Their third album, ‘On the Moon’, had over twenty guests including Sharon Shannon, jazz drummer David Lyttle, Greek oud player Haig Yazdjan and French singer Cali. They toured the world, confirming their live reputation far beyond Irish borders. During the lockdown, NoCrows have come together to create new music, and now that they’re back on the road, they have a whole host of new songs waiting to be released live.
Members of NoCrows include Anna Houston on cello, mandolin and vocals, Steve Wickham on fiddle and vocals, Felip Carbonell on guitar and vocals, Eddie Lee on double bass, flute and vocals, Oleg Ponomarev on violin and Ray Coen on guitar, violin. , and voice.
The concert will take place at Rugby Club, Tullamore on Friday 30 September. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the concert starts at 8 p.m.
