Travelling folksters Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies present their intimate cabaret of joyful sing-a-long choruses and general participatory fun at tonight’s Café Sessions.
The pair have become firm favourites with the Chapter 1 audience thanks to their leftfield topics complementing their melodic virtuosity.
Pirates, lizards, cracks in the wall and Basque cyclists all inhabit the songscape. And let’s not forget that Beard Snood...
Their debut album, ‘Long Way to Be Free’, appeared in 2009 on Hot Drop Records followed by ‘The Bones on Black’ in 2012.
A third album is due for release later this year, all being well. Support for Thursday’s gig comes from Arva man Alan Ned Gray. Looking ahead, on Thursday, May 22 singer Clara Rose will top the Café Sessions bill. Before that, don’t miss Harry Bird and The Rubber Wellies on Thursday, May 8, 8pm. Suggested donation €5; unwaged €3.
