Three nights with


+ Chequerboard

Sun 11th, 18th & 25th November

For three weeks this November, lo-fi songsmith Si Schroeder will take residence upstairs in Whelan’s, Wexford St.

Over the course of the residency Si will play three very different sets, mixing solo performances and full band sets, and playing long unheard tracks from his Choice nominated ‘Coping Mechanisms’ in new arrangements, along with a complete airing of his soon-to-be-released LP ‘Holding Patterns’, and debuting some brand new material – including, for the first time in over ten years, some entirely electronic tracks. He will be rounding off the three gigs with the release of a digital EP of a seasonal nature, whose contents will not be revealed until the 25th of November.

Each show will be accompanied by a different support, including Chequerboard and Sunken Foal.

Nov 11th – Sunken Foal

Nov 18th – Glimmermen

Nov 25th – Chequerboard

‘Beautiful, beguiling, dreamy’ – Jim Carroll (The Irish Times)
