/// DR SLACKE & THE PALPITATIONS ///
Darragh Slacke is a songsmith from Cavan town. A working musician who has played in a myriad of bands down through the years from funk/rock with Ian I Brow to trad Irish with balladeer group Whiskey You’re The Divil. As a solo performer he released his first album Songs in the key of Slacke in 2011 documenting his African travels. Another group of note he’s involved with are 8 piece funk/soul/craic group Blutack & The Greenhorns, who’ve had a residency at Cork Jazz Festival for the past 5 years.
Currently young Slacke is preparing to launch his second solo album, Jaysus knows. This project draws on his time writing in a cottage in Ballyjamesduff, Cavan, and musings on modern living and local lunacy. During this writing period he engaged in a creative process that revolved around music, poetry and sketching providing interesting results.
Darragh has been performing music since 1998 and has steadily earned the reputation as one of Ireland’s most gifted guitar players.
