Whelan’s are proud to present INTERFERENCE, live in Whelan’s on Fri 12th Apr. Tickets €22 go on sale from on Fri 11th Jan, 9am

Interference are a group centered around the late singer-songwriter, poet and painter Fergus O’Farrell.

In existence for nearly 35 years the band have had several line-ups, the current ensemble featuring the talents of Maurice Seezer, Paul Tiernan and Camilla Griehsel along with original guitar maestro and founding member James O’Leary, a band who have through the years received numerous critically acclaimed reviews and commentary, they are very highly respected by their peers.

In 2018 they were awarded an Honorary Patronage to the Musical Society of Trinity College Dublin in recognition of their contribution to the Irish music scene. Without O’Farrell interference have continued to wow audiences with their remarkable music with a number of guest vocalists, most notably Glen Hansard, who has proclaimed on several occasions that this is the band he always wanted to be in.

Expect to hear songs from their extensive back catalogue, Dave Fanning notably remarked once that he “simply couldn’t pigeonhole this band”. Their song Gold features prominently in the musical ‘Once’, another collaboration with Hansard of which there have been many through the years.

Currently promoting a new album and being involved in a feature documentary in the making, of the life of O’Farrell, interference have headlined several sell out shows already this year with guest vocals form Hansard, Liam O’Maonlai, Mundy, and Jerry Fish , this is not a performance to be missed.
