2016 has been a year of many highs for Longford based Brave Giant.

In December 2015, the band had not yet given a headline Dublin concert. December 2016, they have given two, both sold out in a matter of days and on December 17th the band plays its 3rd Dublin sell out show. This time at The Workmans Club. The show sold out in five days. The band also went to No 2 in the itunes album chart with its debut EP, ‘Lordy Lordy’.

On December 17th, tickets for the band’s first Dublin headline show of 2017 go on sale. The concert will take place at Main Room Whelans on Saturday April, 22nd.

Tickets priced €10 including booking fee, go on sale from wavtickets.ie and tickets.ie at 09.00 on Saturday December 17th.

A successful first half of 2016 was the perfect segway into an equally successful autumn and winter for this Longford based Indie/folk/pop five-piece.

· Mark Prunty (guitar/vox), Podge Gill (guitar/vox), Ross McNerney (banjo/mandolin), Emmett Collum (drums), David Kilbride (bass).

Together with now adding a 3rd SOLD OUT Dublin headline date to its list of achievements in 2016, Brave Giant was also delighted to be asked by Bord na Mona to participate in its #HearthSessions campaign this winter. All details were announced at Whelans Parlour Bar on October 26th during the first ever #HearthSessions when the band performed alongside Gavin James & Roisin O.

The sold out Christmas Show at The Workmans Club Dublin on December 17th will conclude an exceptional official year 1 for Brave Giant.

– A year that includes three sold out headline Dublin shows in eight months, a number of performances across national and independent local radio shows, taken under the wing of online powerhouse joe.ie who showed this five-piece incredible support consistently during 2016, being invited to play Indiependence, playing its first UK shows including Into The Wild Festival this summer, sold out shows in hometown Longford at The Backstage theatre & a number No 2 debut EP on release

In 2017 we will bring a brand new EP, the new headline show in Whelans on April 22nd and the band is already in talks about festivals both in the UK and USA in addition to here at home. Stay Tuned.
