We are aware of rumours circulating that we have been nominated for the dreaded Ice Bucket Challenge by the Idyllic Dolls and are seeking specialist legal advice/pricing flights home for Gerry with regards the matter. Watch this space….
Gutted to wake up this morning to the news Gerry Anderson has passed. Gerry was a gentleman and a invaluable help to us as youngsters starting out in music. He will be sadly missed. Our thoughts are with his family and many friends. RIP
Deadly rehearsal today with Lough shore man Niall Hanna who is standing in for Gerry for a few shows this year. Off to a wee island off Normandy in France called Tatihou on Sunday!
Down to the Duke of York today for a few sets outside in the lovely Belfast heat! Also celebrating the engagement of the man behind the drums on all The Rapparee’s albums, Eamon Murray to the lovely Pauline Scanlon! Hooray!
Our dear friend and occasional Rapparee Barry Kerr is finally getting round to making his new album which the folk/trad world have been waiting on for a lifetime. Please support what will certainly be one of the best albums you’re likely to hear by getting involved in the fundit campaign below! xx
Heading out to Paris to board the high speed TGV train to Lille to meet up with the Slainte lads for a few gigs at their amazing festival. It’s fair to say there’ll be no shortage of red wine, Jameson and tasty food. Ahhhhhhh it’s a hard life #bringtheclearbottleoutboys
A massive thank you to everyone who made our sold out Dubliners tribute in the Empire such a success. It was a joy to play their music to such lovely people. We’ll be announcing our 10th anniversary plans in the coming days but in the meantime, we’re recharged and away to play more tunes in France. Much love xx
