Tradiohead will perform in Campbell’s Pub in Cloughanover
Tradiohead will perform this Friday, the 19th of October, in Campbell’s Pub in Cloughanover, County Galway. Doors will open at 9:30pm, and admission is €5. Support on the night will be from the brilliant Tara Stacey.
No surprises? Well, not quite. Tradiohead take the songs of Radiohead and re-imagine them using instruments more often associated with Irish traditional music – Occupy Oxford, if you will. The quartet play songs from classic albums like The Bends,OK Computer and Kid A, as well as more recent Radiohead records like Hail To The Thief and In Rainbows.They caught the ear of Galway Bay FM’s Vinny Browne, who invited Tradiohead to play on his well-regarded Arts Show. They closed this year’s Galway Sessions Festival, have just returned from two shows at the 2012 Electric Picnic, and recently performed as part of the Tuam Trad Festival.
The band are Jimi McDonnell on vocals, Philip Fogarty on accordion and bodhrán, Pat Hargan on guitar, and Michael Chang on violin, viola and mandolin. Tara Stacey came to national prominence last June when she entered Tom Dunne’s Newstalk competition to find Ireland’s best singer/songwriter. From over a thousand entrants she got through to the final three with her song “Candles”.
