It has been described as ‘psycho ceilidh’, ‘whiskey-soaked folk’ and just plain old ‘partying music’ – whatever it is, The Logues have made the genre their own.
From their humble beginnings in a sleepy County Tyrone village, they have become one of Ireland’s most sought-after live bands.
Signed to Ireland’s most respected live music booking agency, AMA Music Agency (The Coronas, Paddy Casey, Aslan to name a few), the band have had a busy start to 2015, both in the studio and on the road.
Regular weekly gigs in some of the country’s top venues along with a string of dates in Dubai for St. Patrick’s week has seen the band make a rip-roaring start to the year and the rest of 2015 only promises to get even busier, with various Irish festival slots and gigs in Scotland and on the continent already confirmed.
Building on the success of their self-released debut album Tough at the Bottom (2011), the band entered Attica recording studio in Donegal (Foy Vance, Villagers etc) in June 2014 to begin recording their next album, from which they released Fly Free.
The dark, melodic love song is receiving high critical acclaim and extensive radio airplay throughout Ireland and the UK, with Ocean FM calling it 'one of the singles of the year’ and tipping The Logues as one of the bands to watch in 2015.
And they are back for St. Patrick's Day at The Irish Village.
Support from The Real Shindig and Yeah Yeah Nah.
Sunday 17 March 2019 from 8pm until 3am.
