SÉAN NEEDHAM & THE RED BAND
NIALL RAINEY & THE DIRTY BULLETS
Sean Needham & the Red Lake Band bring their own blend of ‘upbeat folk rock’ to Ireland this July. The live show offers uplifting melodies, meaningful lyrics and rocking tunes. The band is a mix of Irish, Australian, Danish and English musicians with Seán Needham (guitar/ vocals), Eamonn Rainey (bass/vocals), Christian Worm (guitar), Jimmy Weston (Drums) & Steve Green (Sax). As well as songs from their new EP their set will include songs from Sean’s earlier albums ‘Time is a Friend’ and ‘Loosely Based on a True Story’ which earned Sean national airplay and support slots with major artists including Tracy Chapman and Diana Krall.
Niall Rainey & The Dirty Bullets will be playing songs from his debut album “Roll on Someday”. This album reaches into a part of Niall that anyone seldom sees off stage. Exposing emotions is not something that comes natural to him and each song reads like a page ripped from a diary. Niall says that he “lives his songs, not writes them. Each is a snapshot of my life or those lives around me, some painful and some less so, that I could share”.Few could disagree when The Copenhagen Post wrote “Ireland’s reputation of producing beautiful crafted folk songs remains intact with the release out “Roll on Someday”.
