WALKING ON CARS – 2012 is shaping up to be a big year for a Dingle-based band whose edgy acoustic rock, classical piano and polished pop sound have earned them major kudos on the national music scene.

The West Kerry five-piece comprises of Patrick Sheehy on vocals and rhythm guitar, Sorcha Durham on piano, Paul Flannery on bass guitar, Evan Hadnett on drums and Tom Kavanagh on lead guitar and backing vocals.
