After selling out their Sydney St Patricks Day pop up show in under 48 hours, and performing sold out shows across the country in 2017, one of Ireland’s biggest bands today return to Australia in November. The Coronas are currently reaching new heights across the world performing huge stadium shows in their native Ireland, supporting one of Norway’s hottest acts Dagny on her Norwegian tour, playing some of the biggest festivals on the planet, and having four double platinum albums and numerous top 10 singles under their belt.
With special guests Paddy McHugh & Ryan Mc Mullan
After multiple sell out shows across Australia in recent years, Damien Dempsey returns with his full band in November to play Sydney Irish Festival as well as some headline shows.
Dempsey’s voice is all Dublin, yet wholly distinctive. It’s almost clichéd to say it, but he is part of a rich bloodline of Irish singers from Luke Kelly to Ronnie Drew, Christy Moore to Andy Irvine. To describe Damien Dempsey’s music to someone who hasn’t yet been exposed to it would be to take some reggae, fuse it with traditional Irish music, add in rock and folk and put it all through a grounded working class worldly aware yet caring consciousness, and you’re some bit of the way there.
The Limerick band has seen massive success over the past year, including the release of their new EP Gold & Rust featuring the lead, chart topping single Lions Share. This acoustic folk rock band has successfully built a dedicated legion of fans across the globe thanks to their captivating and unforgettable live sets. Playing gigs in South Africa, Australia, United States, Canada, Dubai, France, London and of course Ireland, they have had the opportunities to play on stage with the likes of Gavin James, Josh Ritter, Walking On Cars, The Pogues and The Trews.
Their unique arrangement of instruments includes the bodhrán, djembe, rhythmic guitar and banjo sets them apart as a truly original offering of Irish music.
