The Fureys

The Fureys have been entertaining audiences worldwide for 36 years, audiences that have included former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, Former Irish President Mary McAleese and the late Pope John Paul while Tony Blair has publicly stated his favourite peace song of all time is the Fureys “Green Fields of France”. Recently Ireland President Michael D Higgins attended their concert in Dublin’s National Concert Hall.

The Fureys are responsible for some of the most stirring music ever to capture the public imagination. Their folk based music has received standing ovations in some of the biggest concert halls of the world and they credit their musical ability to their parents, Ted and Nora, who were well known musicians themselves. They encouraged their sons to play music from a very early age and there was live traditional music in their house almost nightly.

Their emotive songs stir many emotions….tears and laughter, sadness and joy.

A Fureys concert is always a night to remember.

Nolan & Lambe @ glór will be open on the evening and you can opt for a 2 course supper before the event for just €15.  This may be booked with box office directly on online here.

Mick Flannery & Band

Mick Flannery’s songs usher us into a world which is by times emotional, romantic, dark, insightful and hopeful.  On foot of his latest album By The Rule, the Cork singer songwriter makes a much anticipated return to glór.

In 2013 Mick took a notion to go to Germany and Berlin and after a bitter cold winter he came home and then went back and settled in Berlin for seven months and went to work.  The result is his new album By The Rule.

“By the Rule”, then: the sound of Mick Flannery getting comfortable in his skin. The sound of a man at ease with his work. The sound of a master songwriter creating his best work to date.
“It’s never a chore”, Flannery says about the craft of songwriting “The creation is the nicest part, it’s something you always have and you can use it to work through stuff that’s in your head. You have to take it seriously if it’s going to be any good. It’s always my favourite thing, like putting Lego blocks together. You can make a lot of things with Lego.” “

His new album By the Rule is the work of a confident, assured songwriter, someone who knows how to turn a list of nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs into graceful, minor-key pen-pictures and poetry which will resonate with the listener.

It’s been an incredible first year for Join Me In The Pines who unleashed four beautiful videos for tracks ‘Joy Is A Lion, ‘Golden Guilt’, ‘Should Not Roam’ and lastly ‘At First Light’ from their debut album  ‘INHERIT’ available to buy as a digital download, on CD and Vinyl. JMITP toured the length and breath of Ireland and are now delighted to announce a Theatre Tour which will kick off in February, 2015. 

JMITP’s front man is Bell X1’s David Geraghty who released his debut solo album ‘Kill Your Darlings’ in 2007, to critical and fan acclaim. The album was also nominated for a Choice Music Prize that year. 2009 saw David return with his second solo offering ‘The Victory Dance’. Both of these albums were written and recorded between stints in the hectic Bell X1 touring schedule.

It is a busy year for Mr. Geraghty as he has just completed the film score for “You’re Ugly Too” starring Aidan Gillen. The film is set to premier at the prestigious Berlin film festival in February 2015.
