Event description

Description

Glasdrum complete the Autumn 2018 series of New Sounds In An Old Place, on Friday 2nd November 2018, with a really superb line up of Northern Ireland Music Prize 2017 winner, Joshua Burnside with special guest Elephant, at St John The Baptist Church, Drumcondra.

Joshua Burnside, winner of the Northern Ireland Music Prize 2017 for his debut album Ephrata, comes to Drumcondra to play this very intimate show with a stripped down band.

Following the release of Ephrata, Joshua Burnside has had a busy year clocking up over four million plays on Spotify, with two sell out London shows, appearances at International festivals including Reeperbahn and The Great Escape. He performed for Folk Alliance and the British Music Embassy at SXSW 2018, where he was chosen by NPR as one of the festival highlights – “Burnside's sound surges with real force... an intoxicating bundle of frayed nerves and woozy intensity.” He also played a 6 Music Fringe event during the recent BBC Big Weekend.

Joshua's new EP All Round The Light Said features four new songs. In lead-single “A Man Of High Renown”, he blends a joyous waltz complete with air organs and accordions with often violent and disturbing imagery, dealing with the shame of sins committed in childhood. For this intimate show, Joshua will be playing songs from his album Ephrata as well as some newly penned tracks which will feature on his forthcoming new album due later this year.

‘Rumbling, brooding, powerful, magnetic’ - The Irish Times

‘There’s an indefinable quality and charm to Joshua Burnside’s debut’ - The Sunday Times

‘It makes you glad to have a pair of working ears’ - Phil Taggart, BBC Radio 1

Elephant the musical vehicle of Dundalk based multi-instrumentalist Shane Clarke has just released his second album entitled '88'. Elephant has taken a turn to a darker alternative-pop sound with his new album, titled ‘88’. Coupled by his love of the 80’s new romantics and an aversion to complacency, Shane and producer Joseph Edwards have produced a genre spanning, hour long concept album about a man who travels back in time to all the most important conversations of his past. And, as the fly on the wall, asks the question…what if I had done things differently?

Elephant and his band have embarked on a late summer tour to showcase the new album with a greater focus than ever on musicality, playing alternate versions of early Elephant songs to keep the set fresh and vital. This gig will see a stripped back Elephant for this very special performance.

"A bittersweet masterpiece *****" - 5 Stars, The Irish Times
"88 is an album about life itself" - 9/10, The Last Mixed Tape
"An Irish masterpiece on so many levels" - Remy
“Album of the Month” – John Loftus, 8 Radio

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.
