“Three decades equals a remarkable repertoire in Scullion’s world, most of it drawn from the creative genius of Condell, whose subtle lyricism and matchless melody lines bear scant kinship to anyone else on the planet”– Irish Times Following the release of there long awaited album ‘Long Wave’, The Liffey Banks Sessions and Whelan’s Live are delighted to present one of Ireland’s finest Live Acts, Scullion. This group of musicians, Sonny Condell, Robbie Overson and Philip King remain true to their eclectic musical roots, they are nourished by tradition, translate and deconstruct it, and transmit an individual musical experience for capacity audiences whenever they choose to perform. The music and songs of Sonny Condell are the foundation of the unique Scullion sound. His artistry is the creative beating heart of the trio, a trio that makes a mighty sound. These evenings will celebrate that sound. Scullion grew from a chance meeting in the late seventies, of its two main founders, Philip King and Sonny Condell. As a band they started rehearsing and writing in a small apartment above a chip shop in Dún laoghaire, County Dublin, which eventually followed with regular appearances at various Dublin haunts including the Meeting Place in Dorset St. Dublin.
