Description

TWO AMAZING PERFORMERS FOR NEW SOUNDS IN AN OLD PLACE on Friday 24th May 2019

Naomi Hamilton AKA Jealous of the Birds has been making waves in the indie music scene since her debut EP Capricorn, recorded while studying English and Creative Writing at Queens University Belfast. Combining deeply felt lyrics with musical artistry and an expressive voice that can gravel and sooth, The Irish Times has described her music as 'progressing from whimsical folk-pop to atmospheric indie post-punk of real substance'.

A recent review of her January 2019 released EP Wisdom Teeth declared that 'Jealous of the Birds Intersects Art and Honesty in Song.'

You won't want to miss this full band performance in the special acoustic and athmosphere of St John the Baptist Church.

Limerick-born, composer/producer Paddy Mulcahy has explored ambient and instrumental electronic terrain. His music will find favour with those who enjoy the beautiful calm of composers like Nils Frahm and Olafaur Arnalds. Paddy releases the gorgeous 'How To Disappear', the lead track from his forthcoming album on the day of the gig Friday 24th May. His album 'How to Disappear will be released later in 2019. Perfect timing to hear a preview of the album tracks.

The Performers


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.

GlasDrum is a north Dublin voluntary organisation of arts professionals dedicated to bringing high quality arts events to Glasnevin and Drumcondra and creating a vibrant cultural environment in this area. Established in 2015, we present the annual Fidelio Trio Winter Chamber Music Festival, now in its 5th year, in the beautiful setting of Belvedere House.

Mácalla also included a performance by Liam Ó Maonlaí and Peter O’Toole. Visit our website for other forthcoming events in this neighbourhood and join the mailing list at www.glasdrum.ie
