Folk Club presents a double bill of two phenomenal contemporary Folk groups. With support from members of Traditional Arts Collective.
Eamon O’Leary and Jefferson Hamer (aka The Murphy Beds) present traditional and original folk songs with close harmonies and deft instrumental arrangements on bouzouki, guitar, and mandolin. Jefferson and Eamon have been performing together for years, having first met at Irish sessions in New York City.
Landless are Ruth Clinton, Meabh Meir, Sinead Lynch and Lily Power. They sing unaccompanied traditional songs from Irish, Scottish, English and American traditions in close four-part harmony. Their repertoire features songs of love, death and lamentation, as well as work songs, shape-note hymns and more recently-penned folk songs. Landless have performed in a variety of settings, both in Ireland and abroad, and are closely involved with traditional singing sessions in Dublin and Belfast.
Traditional Arts Collective play a selection of Irish, Scottish, Bulgarian and other tunes and songs from around the world featuring some great traditional musicians and singers from the scene in Ireland.
