Gatehouse  music finished


Friday 24th March, 8pm

Gatehouse are a newly-formed band with a line up of experienced and up and coming artistes, who recently launched debut album Tús Nua. 

Gatehouse are: John McEvoy (fiddle/viola/piano); Jacinta McEvoy (guitar/concertina/backing vocals); Rachel Garvey (vocals); and John Wynne (flutes/whistles). 

The songs and tunes from Gatehouse’s repertoire are based in the North Connaught traditions, the sean nós singing tradition of Connamara, the rich Ulster song tradition and a sprinkling of other influences.  The band’s arrangements are appropriate and musically thoughtful. The band also draws on some newly composed music, including two of John McEvoy’s compositions which are included in Tús Nua.

Tickets: €12 / €10. Early booking advised.
