Black Water County + Support from Old Sea Legs on Friday 17th April 2020
Please note, this event has been cancelled.
Through a fusion of folk instruments, punk energy and catchy pop melodies, Black Water County’s sing along choruses rile up audiences all over the UK and across Europe since their first headline tour in 2018. The five piece, 20 something group of friends from Bournemouth came together through their love of playing music live. They tell stories of relationships, the people they meet on the road and their own angsty experiences of growing up looking through the bottom of a pint glass.
Fronted by Tim and Shannon’s spirited vocals, the band have kicked the party off at hundreds of festivals including Boomtown Fair, Beautiful Days and Camp Bestival and won a place on Fireball’s ‘Fuelling the Fire Tour’ in 2016 and 2018.
After independently releasing debut album ‘Taking Chances’ in 2017 along with singles ‘One More Beer Won’t Hurt’, ‘Start Something New’, ‘The Painful Truth’ and ‘Under Skies of Black and Blue’ Black Water County have been focused on unrelenting gigging and writing the next album due for a 2020 release.
Here is their song ‘ Under Skies of Black and Blue’ - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=p_pAc_R-tUw
Support from Old Sea Legs
Crawling with vivid imagery and colourful characters, a timeless tangle of tongue-twisting, brain-burrowing lyrics that can swing from a breathless barrage to a lilting lament – at times without a moments notice – ’Old Sea Legs’ is more than just a nom de guerre for Dublin songwriter and performer Ian Bermingham; it is a window into a world entirely of his own creation.
Best known for his time as frontman of Dublin quintet ‘The Eskies’, Bermingham has wasted no time in stepping into new, uncharted waters as a solo performer since the group’s sad demise in the latter half of 2019.
Displaying all of the storytelling nous and craft of the quintessential folk troubadour, the melodic ear of a pop pioneer and the lyrical largesse that has become so synonymous with Ian’s songwriting, ‘Old Sea Legs’ see’s the Dubliner push himself to new and exciting territories.
Music Genres: Folk, Pop, Punk
