Birds of Burden

Birds of Burden produce a blend of hard, driving rock and hypnotic meandering airs to frame an almost diary-like lyrical intimacy, firmly rooted in the folk ballad tradition.

The band itself, formed around the song writing partnership of Eoin Dalton (Hollerin’ Pine) and Joe Meagher (El Hígado No Existé) is completed by Éadaoin Breathnach (Artistic and Musical Director of Rigout Productions), Heather Troy-Whelan (Mufasa, Broken, Found on the Floor) and Paul McDonald (Blindsite).

Their debut album ‘A conspiracy of dust’ is available for purchase on Bandcamp.

Tadhg Williams plus Band

Tadhg Williams is a songwriter and poet originally from Waterford, now based in Dublin. His music has become known for its lyricism and heart-on-sleeve melodies endearing him to an already significant fanbase, earning praise from the likes of Declan O’Rourke, David Keenan and Stephen James Smith.

Williams’ releases to date have received significant support across Irish media with Hot Press describing him as “one of Ireland’s most thrilling emerging songwriters”. Often writing about his hometown, Williams credits his time writing poetry with Waterford writing collective Modwords for his development as a lyricist – his songs and poems are both deeply personal and deeply familiar.

Having supported acts in the past such as Glen Hansard, The Stunning, Niamh Regan and Rozi Plain, Williams has noted himself as a consummate live performer. The reformation of his live band under the moniker ‘Tadhg Williams and the Friday Night Choir’ notes the beginning of a busy 2023 in the live scene.
