No surprises? Well, not quite. Tradiohead take the songs of Radiohead and re-imagine them using instruments more often associated with Irish traditional music – Occupy Oxford, if you will. The quartet play songs from classic albums like The Bends,OK Computer and Kid A, as well as more recent Radiohead records like Hail To The Thief and In Rainbows.
Tradiohead return to Whelan’s after making their presence felt around the country, taking in trad festivals and the Electric Picnic on their itinerary, and a live session with Nadine O’Regan on Phantom FM, as well as an interview with Hot Press.
The band are Jimi McDonnell on vocals, Philip Fogarty on accordion and bodhrán, Pat Hargan on guitar, and Michael Chang on violin, viola and mandolin.
