BIRDS OF BURDEN

On September 4th last year Waterford band Birds of Burden played a lovely intimate set on the stage of The Theatre Royal to a small but warmly appreciative audience.

Such is the nature of the times we’ve been living through that they, like so many other musicians, have not played again since. 

On Friday August 27th however, exactly one week short of the anniversary of that performance they return to the same stage for a similarly intimate offering. 

For those unfamiliar with them, 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.
