    ^ Upstairs ^

    ‘House That The Trees Reclaimed’ is the 2nd studio album from Garret Baker & The Random Nouns, a musical project by Dubliner Baker, his half French, half Irish partner, Laura Mallett, Dublin guitarist Christopher Barry and German cellist Frieda Freytag. An album of songs written in a stone house on the river Shannon, that explores local murder ballads, mother and baby homes and the dissolute Dublin music scene of old.

    Past reviews:

    “The debut album from this Irish based singer songwriter. Features 12 rather beautifully crafted haunting folk songs with a slightly jazzy twist from time to time.” – Road Records

    “..reminded me of the first Young Marble Giants LP with a few nods to Nico and the Velvet Underground thrown in…a threadbare chic.” – Folkbuddy blog.

    “A latter day Jacques Brel acolyte.” – The Evening Herald

    “The debut album from this Irish based singer songwriter. Features 12 rather beautifully crafted haunting folk songs with a slightly jazzy twist from time to time.” – Road Records

    “His debut is one of character, class and charm.” – Hot Press.

    _ Main Venue _

    With a sound that is unique to Galway city, the Latchikos began as a busking band: fusing a heady mix of traditional Irish violin with spanish gyspsy guitar and world tribal beats on Cajon box.

    Credited as the originators of “Gyp-Hop” (Gaelic gypsy hip-hop!) the Latchiko’s blend a raw mix of Virtuoso violin, Spoken Word and Raw driving Gaelic beats with humour and gusto.

    They soon found festivals locally and internationally and are currently recording their second album.

    Their gig at the Róisín Dubh at Christmas 2019 sold out and they are very much looking forward to bringing their unique brand of ‘Gyp-Hop’ to Whelan’s on February 27th.

    SPECIAL GUEST: RÓNÁN Ó SNODAIGH

    ‘A wild-eyed shock of Celtic unpredictability, Galway-born Aindrias de Staic is not only a captivating yarn-spinning but also a master fiddler. Fast, furious, talented and hilarious’ The Scotsman

    Ritual Sea formed in 2016 over a love of film, dream pop, shoegaze and esoterica. Having released their debut single ‘Serpentine’ in late 2016, they went on to to support the likes of Manchester psych-folk artist Jane Weaver and Berlin-based, The Underground Youth. In 2018, Ritual Sea released ‘Seasons (Like You)’ exploring themes of fear, paranoia and love, which the Thin Air called “dazed and beautifully disembodied…easily one of the best Irish tracks of the year thus far” culminating in them playing two shows at Ireland’s revered ‘Other Voices’ festival in Dingle.

    In 2019, Ritual Sea played alongside Welsh folk-pop artist Gwenno as part of the Eastbound Dublin Festival and worked on completing their debut album. With a new expanded lineup, Ritual Sea will play upstairs in Whelan’s on Friday 28th February with a very special guest performance by experimental indie artist, Rachael Lavelle.

    His new release a recording of  ‘True Love Will Find You in The End’ (feat. Wallis Bird) with arrangements by his friend and renowned composer Cian Boylan is
    playlisted on Radio 1 and getting national airplay across all stations and media  This is a chance to hear an exclusive live performance of his new single and a whole lot more.

    SHAWN JAMES

    plus support

    _ Main Venue _

    Take one listen to Shawn James’ music and you can hear his roots in the Mississippi delta by way of growing up on the fabled South Side of Chicago, his authentic, gutbucket blend of blues, folk, and soul music running the gamut of ecstatic joy and painful anguish.

    His aching cover of Macy Gray’s “I Try” for GRAMMY.com’s “GRAMMY ReImagined” feature takes the original, a three-time nominee (for both Record and Song of the Year) and winner for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 43rd Annual GRAMMY Awards in 2000 to the church, bringing out the wrenching anguish and yearning at its core. The song will be available to stream on GRAMMY.com as well as all the leading DSPs, including Spotify and Apple Music.

    “The emotional heaviness of the lyrics is what drew me to it,” explains James. “People can relate on some level or another regarding love, loss, addiction, and the reaction to dealing with those things.”

    James’s reimagining included “adding a depth of sorrow and darkness not just to the lyrics, but the ambience and delivery of the performance,” slowing the song down to emphasize the depth of feeling as he tries to say goodbye.

    The singer-songwriter has previously released four full-length albums, including his debut, Shadows, a live record (Live at the Heartbreak House), a covers EP (The Madrid Sessions) and the original songs of his most recent effort, On the Shoulders of Giants. His anticipated new release will be coming out in 2019 on indie label Parts + Labor Records, produced and recorded by Jimmy Messer (AWOLNation, Kelly Clarkson, Kygo, The White Buffalo).

    James is a road dog, the hellhounds at his heels, performing more than 200 dates a year, including a November 12th appearance at the fabled Troubadour in Los Angeles. His songs have been featured on HBO, CBS and Sony Playstation’s The Last of Us 2. His track, “Through the Valley,” topped Spotify’s Global Viral Charts, while generating more than 60 million streams combined on Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube.

    This year’s DCU Mental Health Soc is celebrating FIVE YEARS of Craicin’ Up at Whelan’s!

    Over the past five years we’ve brought you some of the best talent Irish Music has to offer, from The Coronas to David Keenan, and in order to ring in another year we’re be ensuring our soon to be announced acts are not to be missed. And of course, our opening act from Wee Craicin’ Up, Jean Kavanagh will be kicking everything off.

    And the best part of all, this concert is all in aid of JIGSAW, they run thirteen centers all across Ireland that specalise in young people’s Mental Health. Their work is crucial to communities all across the country, and they provide safe spaces for our youth to access proper care. All you have to do to support this fantastic organisation is show up, and give whatever you can to help, be it your time, loose change or support!

    Tickets for the actual event itself will be free, and available right now, but we will be taking a 5 euro donation for Jigsaw with every ticket so give what you can to support.

    In the meantime give us a hand in spreading the word for Jigsaw and Craicin’ Up! Clicking “going” and give us a share to help young people all across Ireland!
