Long Woman's Grave


From: Saturday, 28 May 2022


Droichead Arts Centre Stockwell St. Drogheda Louth

A fantastic free gig happening this month as part of the Local Live Performance Scheme, funded by Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media takes place Saturday 28th May at 8pm.

LONG WOMAN'S GRAVE is a brand new collaboration between three well-loved names in Irish Traditional Music – Nuala Kennedy (The Alt, Orialla: vocals, flute), SJ McArdle (ex-Kern: vocals, guitar, mandolin) and Trevor Hutchinson (Lúnasa, ex-The Waterboys: bass).

The trio’s repertoire reflects both their deep grounding in the tradition and a questing love of the urban and rural music of Nuala and SJ’s home county of Louth, blending traditional song with new original compositions. LWG’s first single, “High Germany”, was recorded entirely during lockdown at all three members’ homes in Ennis, Drogheda and Dublin. It was an immediate hit with folk presenters on BBC Radio Ulster, BBC Scotland, RTÉ Radio 1 and Radio na Gaeltachta among others. A new single is due for release shortly.

This is a free event, but booking is essential.  Visit Website (above) for more details.
