‘After The Sherry Went Round’ Album Launch

plus guests

_ Main Venue _

Sea Soaked Gypsy Folk peddlers The Eskies finally get around to launching their debut album along with some very special guests.

Having been cast out, blacklisted, rejected and ejected from gentlemen’s clubs far and wide, five dejected cast asides joined forces in what was to be their own celebration of commonality.

Purveyors of music that meanders from sea soaked waltz to Italian tarantella, from Brassy funeral march-esque lament to weep along Klezmar knees up, from chain gang holler to rag time finger snap. Skipping through the dark side of anything that makes you want to dance, steeped in melodrama and usually with not a small amount of tongue in cheek.

When they released their debut EP ‘Sherry Go Round’ in November of 2012, they sold out The Grand Social. Their debut single ‘Fever’ was launched to a sold out Button Factory in April of last year and now The Eskies are set to release their debut album ‘After The Sherry Went Round’ in Whelans on the 16th of May.

Book now to avoid disappointment.
