Description

GLASDRUM is delighted to present the second in the Autumn 2018 series of New Sounds In An Old Place with a triple bill of incredible talent with YE VAGABONDS, DOWRY AND NATALYA O'FLAHERTY gracing the stage of St John The Baptist Church, Drumcondra, on Friday 5th October 2018.

Brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn make up Ye Vagabonds, whose spellbinding close harmonic folk tunes, have been captivating audiences since coming to public attention in 2012. In October 2017, they launched their debut, self-titled album to great acclaim. “Ye Vagabonds” comprises of harmony rich folk music, influenced by Irish traditional music, Appalachian singing, and the 1960's folk revival. It includes ten mellow tracks weaved with thoughtful lyrics, thickly layered with strings and droning harmonium.

Dowry (Éna Brennan) is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger, songwriter, and graphic designer originally from Brussels. She has recently embarked on a solo project under the moniker of Dowry fusing a variety of different sound worlds together; experimental folk, ambient instrumental, contemporary classical, Irish traditional and country music to name a few. Dowry released her debut single in February 2018 entitled In É.

Natalya O'Flaherty is an emerging voice on the Irish spoken word scene. In her short 18 years she's played all over Dublin from the dankest of dive bars to the National Concert Hall and GPO. Her words carry hard hitting notions and criticisms of modern Ireland tackling everything from, so called, daddy issues to drug abuse. She's found her voice through the cheap rhymes and hard hitting nature of spoken word.

The Performers

Ye Vagabonds

Ye Vagabonds

Brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn grew up playing music together around their hometown of Carlow. After moving to Dublin in 2012, they quickly became a staple of the live music and session scene in Ireland, playing their own original songs as well as folk songs from Ireland, Scotland, England and America. In 2014 they came to the attention of Arbutus Yarns’ music filmmaker Myles O’Reilly, whose videos gained international attention for the brothers for the first time. After a chance meeting at Electric Picnic in September 2015, the brothers performed onstage with Glen Hansard, who invited them to open for him on his European tour the following October. Their debut EP Rose & Briar was released on October 7th 2015. In October 2017 they launched their debut, self-titled album to great acclaim. “Ye Vagabonds” comprises of harmony rich folk music, influenced by Irish traditional music, Appalachian singing, and the 1960's folk revival. It includes ten mellow tracks weaved with thoughtful lyrics, thickly layered with strings and droning harmonium.

DowryDowry

Dowry is the recent solo project of multi-instrumentalist and composer Éna Brennan. Since moving to Dublin from Brussels nearly 10 years ago she has obtained an MPhil in Composition from Trinity College Dublin and collaborated with a vast array of artists, be it as a composer, arranger or violinist, weaving in between many of the layers of the Irish music scene. Only a year into her solo project she already has a long list of gigs to her name including performances at Electric Picnic and Sounds From A Safe Harbour, and she has been noted as one to watch in 2018 by The Thin Air, State.ie and Whelan’s. Her debut release In É for solo violin & FX is out now.

Natalya O'FlahertyNatalya O'Flaherty

Natalya is an emerging voice on the Irish spoken word scene. In her short 18 years she's played all over Dublin from the dankest of dive bars to our very own National Concert Hall and GPO. Her words carry hard hitting notions and criticisms of modern Ireland tackling everything from, so called, daddy issues to drug abuse. She's found her voice through the cheap rhymes and hard hitting natue of spoken word.

The Venue

We are privileged to be able to use Drumcondra Church of Ireland as a venue. An 18th century heritage building hidden off the main Drumcondra Road, St John the Baptist Church of Ireland on Church Avenue has many stories to tell. Rebuilt in 1743 in memory of the wonderfully named Marmaduke Coghill, who lived first across the road in Belvedere House on what is now the St Patrick’s Campus and, when that was deemed too small, in a newly built Drumcondra House on what is now the All Hallows campus of DCU. There are memorials to notable figures in the graveyard. The architect James Gandon, the Jameson Family (of Whiskey fame) crypt and Patrick Heeney (who composed the music of the Irish national anthem) are among the notables found in this graveyard. The Church is still in active use with regular services and is part of the diocese of Dublin: Parish of Drumcondra, North Strand and St Barnabas.
