RANDOLF AND THE CROKERS
^ Upstairs ^
Randolf and the Crokers are getting back on the road to tour their second EP launching on the 3rd of November 2017. Launching the EP on the 3rd in Dolans, Limerick, The band are looking to secure some tour dates as soon as possible.
The band were recently invited by the President Michael D. Higgins to play at the annual Garden Party in Áras an Uachtaráin which showcased lots of new material that we had been working on of late. This amazing opportunity is the beginning of a very exciting few months for us as a band. Following on from our debut EP ‘Conversation Amongst the Ruins’ in 2015, we are currently putting the final touches to our follow up EP. We plan to launch our second EP in September with a single and video launch followed by an Irish tour in October/November. We have recorded four tracks so far in Lakeland Studios and are very excited to share this new material which marks significant evolution for us as a band, whilst still staying true to our indie/folk roots.
We are a six piece alt.country/folk band playing our own music in Limerick since 2011. 2014 marked the release of our first single ‘Hangin’, and our debut EP ‘Conversation Amongst the Ruins’ followed in 2015. We toured the EP around Ireland in 2015/2016 taking in venues such as Dolan’s, Whelan’s in Dublin, DeBarra’s of Clonakilty and Kenny’s in Lahinch, and shared the stage with the likes of Mark Geary, The Lost Brothers, O Emperor and John Blek and the Rats as they toured Ireland.
We were delighted to receive positive reactions from audiences and critics and a particular highlight was being asked to play ‘Ceol ar an Imeall’ on TG4. We spent 2016 writing, playing a splattering of gigs including the Doolin Folk Festival, the Blues, Roots and Brass Festival in Whelan’s, and local gigs headlining the Thomond Sessions here in Limerick. We are now putting the finishing touches to our second EP and look forward to touring it this autumn.
