Tir na nOg on Thursday 15th November 2018

Tir na nOg return to the Old Courts after a hugely successful welcome gig in 2017.

They have been described as Alt Folk, Prog Folk, Psych Folk, and even Space Folk! But the duo, formed by Leo O’Kelly & Sonny Condell in 1970, transcends all these categories. As well as performing in their own right they supported Jethro Tull and Procol Harum and many other greats of that decade.

What is not in doubt is that they are two of the most original and influential songwriters and performers Ireland has ever produced. Tir na nOg’s mesmerising live performances and exhilarating musicianship continue to amaze music lovers of all ages.

2015 saw the eagerly awaited release of a new studio album, 'The Dark Dance' - their first since 1973! Classic Rock magazine listed this as their 3rd best prog album of 2015.

'...oozes with prog-folk magic’ (R2 Magazine)

‘The Dark Dance is an acoustically mounted piece of great refinement, on a record often embellished by strings and moments of eastern promise'’ (Prog Magazine)

‘Each of these deceptively serene songs has an underlying mysticism, an arcane quality that cannot be denied' (Classic Rock Magazine)

Over 14 with an Adult
