Old Hannah Iron and Wood Tour October 2015 Old Hannah are delighted to announce their Iron and Wood EP Tour this October 2015. The band look forward to showcasing their latest critically acclaimed record around Ireland.
Hailing from County Sligo in the west of Ireland, Old Hannah are a foursome schooled in the deep rooted discipline of folk, country and roots music. Their music weaves lapsteel, banjo, mandolin, guitar, piano and beautifully arranged vocals into songs that are at once contemporary and filled with the lore of generations past.
Old Hannah released their Iron and Wood EP in Ireland in May 2015 with sold out performances in Dublin’s Button Factory and Sligo’s The Model. Iron and Wood was recorded with Rian Trench of Solar Bears, and the band are joined by several guest musicians including Steve Wickham of the Waterboys. This bold and transformative follow up to their debut EP Irish Boys displays a leap in creativity and calibre which has established Old Hannah as a new force on the Irish music scene.
Old Hannah have made recent appearances on the Irish festival circuit (Elecric Picnic, HWCH, Forbidden Fruit, Sligo Live, Other Voices), had both their “Irish Boys” and “Iron and Wood” EPs playlisted on national radio, performed on Irelands RTE and TG4 television channels and have supported international touring acts including Sheryl Crow, The Lone Bellow and Simone Felice.
