Paddy Dennehy and The Red Herring, Dublin.
Paddy Dennehy & The Red Herring are a group who draw influences from as far back as the early 1900s right up to the present day. You can hear hints of Tom Waits' theatrical warble; feel the passionate intensity of Louis Armstrong's delivery; and be stirred by a poignancy reminiscent of that of Hozier and Mick Flannery. A variety of influences then; all of of them blended together to form a live performance that is at once unforgettable and utterly unique. Performing this Saturday in The Bowery, Dublin as support to the wonderful Lisa Canny. Tickets are only €5 so they’re an absolute steal, get in on the action here:The Strypes, Japan and Dublin.
To say that The Strypes took Japan by storm would be understating it completely, from sold out nights to Beatleseque fan mania, it was certainly a tour to remember. We’re incredibly excited to have our boys back on Irish soil for not one, not two but three whopper December shows in Whelans! The perfect pre Christmas treat, there aren’t many tickets left so snap yours up here while you still can! http://bit.ly/StrypesWhelans2017
