Stanlaey will be happily returning to Dublin this April for a mini Irish Tour – going by the name of GIRL POWER to celebrate talented independant female artists from an array of countries.
On the 11th, Stanlaey’s second stop will be The Vintage Room in the Workmans Club nearly a year after her debut performance there, celebrating the release of her EP Caroussel (available to hear/purchase here: https://stanlaey.bandcamp.com/album/caroussel
We will also be seeing the beautiful performance from Meg LaGrande and Pembroke…
Meg LaGrande: Meaghan LaGrandeur is a singer/songwriter and celtic fiddle player. Meaghan’s original music uses loop pedal to layer string and vocal arrangements. She made her international debut with the National Dance Company of Ireland in 2012, singing and playing over 200 shows in Japan. The following year she was invited to return for a six month world tour and performed for thousands across the globe.
Pembroke: Pembroke is the love child of Ellen Quinn Banville and Finola Cahill, an eclectic duo hailing from the fair isle of Ireland, but currently based in Paris, France. Their sound reflects their differing and diverse influences, from blues to pop to soul to lyrical folk.
Singer Ellen Quinn Banville’s beautiful and unique voice has sung with a wide variety of bands and ensembles both in Ireland and Paris. Songwriter and guitarist Finola Cahill is a published poet and enjoys writing songs about beverages, boys and misplaced belongings. Her guitar’s name is Annie.
Finally, Stanlaey will be appearing as a wavy 7 headed creature (Stanlaey/Bethany – ‘Little Blue’ the electric guitar and vocals, Seaweed String Quartet – Matt Andrews, Ellie Dawson, Emma Benson and Sophie Blundell, Backing vocals – Charlie Hawkins, Kitty O’Neal) bringing to life her new album OUROBOROS which can be listened to/pre-purchased below:
