August Wells / Aoife Scott. 2 Deadly Shows At The Workman’s Club

The Workman’s Club present
2 DEADLY SHOWS!
AUGUST WELLS Sunday, 14 February 2016
AOIFE SCOTT ‘CARRY THE DAY’ TOUR’ Friday, 4 March 2016
On Sunday 14 February The Workman’s Club is delighted to present New York  based duo August Wells. August Wells is the musical project  of  prodigious songwriters and composers, Ken Griffin and John Rauchenberger and has quickly gained recognition for their intelligent, reflective and soulful refrains, appearing on ‘Other Voices’ and Electric Picnic, they also recently opened for Glen Hansard in New York’s Beacon Theatre. Griffin is the creative mind behind legendary Irish Indie band Rollerskate Skinny. The music of August Wells has been described as “strange otherworldly chamber music”, “Sinatra singing Lou Reed songs” and “The secret marriage of Willy Nelson and Lee Hazlewood” Expect songs to walk across your troubled heart with – this will be a magical evening. Check out  their video for Alice, Dear Alice here  (8pm / €10)
The second of our two brilliant shows features Dublin folk artist, Aoife Scott on  Friday 4th March. Following her nationwide tour, which included her SOLD OUT album launch at this year’s Temple Bar Trad Fest, Aoife Scott returns to The Workman’s Club for the pinnacle of her Irish Tour. Carry the Day is her eagerly anticipated debut album. It’s a folk album that is heavily influenced by Aoife’s passion for traditional music, and it contains a selection of stories the socially-aware singer wanted to tell, some personal, and others historical and socially-themed. Aoife  moved to the west coast of Ireland several years ago, and her passion for the native Irish language spoken there is reflected in her choice of songs, including the first single from her forthcoming debut album, All Along the Wild Atlantic Way. Her sublime voice is a thing of beauty that stops people in their tracks. Fragile and ethereal one minute and strong and vibrant the next, Dublin Folk singer-songwriter Aoife Scott has become a force to be reckoned with on the Irish Folk and Traditional scene.

Clare O’Mahony Brand New Single ‘You Are Gonna Be Mine’

Single ‘You Are Gonna Be Mine’

Released 12th February

Clare O’Mahony

Taken From Brand New Album

‘Make Your Move’ 22nd April

 

Cork singer songwriter Clare O’Mahony returns with a brand new album backed by a fantastic new band. The first single taken from the album is the melodic ‘You Are Gonna Be Mine’, check out the video right here.

 

Clare’s forthcoming album Make Your Move is based around “catchy, pop-folk tunes, one of which earned her a place in the final of the IMRO Christie Hennessy Songwriting Competition 2015. The album features Mick Flannery on piano, Hugh Dillon on electric guitar, Tom Madden on acoustic guitar as well as the engineering skills of Bernard Quinn, (Villagers, Cathy Davey, Magic Numbers).  

 

From Ballygarvan, Cork, Clare was always interested in music and played piano as a young child, starting at just 4 years of age! Clare’s musical interest was ignited with the likes of Irish songwriter Sinead Lohan as well as Tracy Chapman, James Taylor and Joni Mitchell all of whom really peaked Clare’s interest in songwriting and playing guitar. Having completed endless hours of practice playing along with these songwriters, Clare recorded herself into an old cassette player, and played it for a friend. It was only then that Clare discovered her unique voice, which has been likened to Joan Baez.  

Clare, a graduate of the renowned Music Management and Sound course at Cork’s Colaiste Stiofain Naofa, began to pen her own songs while learning about songwriting, and performance. Clare’s debut album Secret World was well received and included two songs produced by Declan Sinnott. Clare went on to share the stage with James Blunt, Ron Hynes (Sonny’s Dream) as well as performing her own shows throughout Ireland. Clare has performed across parts of Canada including Toronto, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick as well as New York and Chicago.  

 

“The voice is great and the songwriting is great” – Kieran Goss

“A singer-songwriter with a bright future” – Sinead Lohan

Dolittle presents

B DOLAN

+ guests

September 29th, The Workman’s Club

 

“B. Dolan has cursed me with repeating the same lines over and over again in my head since I met him. Come to Jamaica, Come to Dubai. Damn you, B. Dolan. Shit knocks” – EL-P (Run The Jewels)

“Proof that underground hip hop still has bite.” – ALT PRESS

“In a perfect world, this is where hip hop would be.” – POP MATTERS.COM

 

Following a totally sold-out–packed-to-the-rafters gig at our gaff last November with Scroobius Pip and warrenpeace, B. Dolan makes his Irish return with his very own headline show at The Workman’s Club on Tuesday, 29 September.

  1. Dolan’s 2010 debut offering ‘Fallen House, Sunken City’, was a monument to indie rap at a time when the music industry had all but abandoned it. Aggressive, booming and confrontational, the Providence, Rhode Island native announced himself as a high powered presence on the mic. ‘Fallen House’was met with critical acclaim and cult status among fans, forecasting the resurgence of lyrically driven rap years ahead of its time.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise then that in the five years since, Dolan has largely ignored demand for a speedy follow-up and focused on building another ambitious, epic long player. A pair of mixtapes released in that time, ‘House of Bees vol. 2 & 3’, have given a growing army of devotees huge anthems (like ‘Film the Police,’ ‘Which Side Are You On?’ and ‘King Bee’), as well as tantalizing glimpses of what the emcee’s been building in there. Dolan’s live shows have also become the stuff of legend; he once brought a 20 piece marching band overseas with him as backing and has rocked over 500 shows internationally in the last decade (with acts like ATMOSPHERE, SAGE FRANCIS, and even hardcore bands CIRCLE TAKES THE SQUARE and UNITED NATIONS.)

The new record, ‘KILL THE WOLF’ arrives on July 10th 2015, and features an eclectic and unlikely cast of collaborators including AESOP ROCK, BUCK 65, KATHLEEN STUBELEK (of CIRCLE TAKES THE SQUARE) and the late DAVE LAMB(of BROWN BIRD). The LP features production from ALIAS, CECIL OTTER (Doomtree), BUDDY PEACE and more. It would be easy for an album to go astray amid such varying styles, but Dolan stays in firm command as ‘KILL THE WOLF’sexecutive producer, utilizing and combining his guests’ talents in surprising ways, all while maintaining the foreground as a seasoned lyricist and songwriter.

ALRIGHT from KILL THE WOLF

 Tickets are ONSALE NOW at €12 available from www.theworkmansclub.com & Ticketmaster outlets nationwide
