Amy Montgomery                    Amy2

The first thing that grabs your attention about Northern Ireland singer songwriter Amy Montgomery (apart from her Bohemian look) is her raw and beautiful voice honed from relentless busking throughout Ireland. Her vocals seem to channel the spirit of Janis Joplin and Grace Slick whilst also acknowledging her all time favourite Alanis Morissette. Working with well know NI producer/songwriter/musician Michael Mormecha, her first single Dangerous blissfully blends gently strummed acoustic guitars with soaring string arrangements and rich electric licks.

Working with well known NI producer/songwriter/musician Michael Mormecha, her first single Dangerous blissfully blends gently strummed acoustic guitars with soaring string arrangements and rich electric licks. Dangerous picked up plays across BBC Radio Ulster and spot plays on Bob Harris’s Radio 2 show. New single Constitution is available for streaming  now.

Amy Montgomery and her band have just ventured on their first ‘Branch Out’ European Tour, in February 2019. During the 13 dates, they shared their fresh, alternative sound with folks in Ireland, Germany, France, Switzerland and England. This Summer will see Amy performing at a bunch of awesome festivals across Europe also.

Shane Joyce has been the lead singer with Irish based, Americana, Folk act The Midnight Union Band for the past number of years. Although 'The Union' will remain his main focus, to accommodate for a ferocious appetite for songwriting and gigging, he has recently began to get back to his more stripped back roots with solo shows throughout Ireland and a solo album on the horizon.

Checkie Brown                CB2

audition:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edlcUh3YkZw

Checkie Brown das ist tanzbarer Funk & Soul, Jazzfunk und 70er Jahre Psychedelic Rock. Der Rhytmus groovt, die Hitze steigt. Chilliges Saxophon wechselt mit funky Gitarre. Virtuose Jazz-Einlagen treffen auf Krautrock Elemente. Pulsierende, wabernde Lebensfreude die einem in die Beine fährt. Soulig-rockiger Gesang, mit Texten zwischen Wahnsinn und Alltag. Instrumentenwechsel inbegriffen, teilweise werden auch mal zwei Instrumente auf einmal bedient. Der Spaß und die gute Laune stehen immer im Vordergrund.

2018 ... don't remember what was first, the spirit of Rory on this misty November morning in Ballyshannon or the spirit of "the fields of gold", brightening the certain morbid charm of the Great Nothern Hotel Bar, the night before.

Anyway ... both came together to create the idea, call a few friends and try to figure out the spirit of "look out baby your man is back in town, when the blues comes calling with its calling card".

We are the YELLOW SPOT PROJECT and have about 90 years of stage experience - we play the music of R.G. The one and only R.G. - period.

So all you moonchildren, tattoo'd ladies and seventh sons of a seventh son, come and see us. We're for real! Cheers.

Unsere Live-Programme:

nou folk“ ...
...ist eine Zusammenstellung aus selbst geschriebenen englischen und deutschen Folksongs.

Unterwegs“ ...
... ist eine Auslese unserer deutschsprachigen Folksongs, bei der die schriftstellerischen und lyrischen Talente Klaus Zehs besonders zur Geltung kommen.

TRINITY“ ...
... ist ein besonderes Irland Erlebnis.
Traditionelle irische Lieder, Geschichten aus dreißig Jahren Irlandreisen und Lyrik über die grüne Insel spiegeln unsere Liebe zu Irland wider und geben dem Programm eine einzigartige Note.
Wir singen zur Gitarre, zur Bodhran (der irischen Rahmentrommel), oder ganz ursprünglich „a cappella“.
Die Literaturbeiträge sind aus einem Buch mit Kurzgeschichten von Klaus Zeh, sowie aus seinem Lyrikband „
Pontoon - oder wann immer ich hier sein werde“.
