An American-folk invasion comes to the Roisin Dubh this Tuesday with up and coming indie act The Cave Singers taking to the stage.
Given the rising popularity of meditative, indie-folk acts in the early 2000s, forming a twangy folk trio in 2007 was probably the least surprising move Seattle man Derek Fudesco could have made. The former bassist and founding member of the successful indie rock group Pretty Girls Make Graves picked up an acoustic guitar and formed the Cave Singers following PGMG's demise in January 2007, teaming up with vocalist Pete Quirk (formerly of Hint Hint ) and drummer Marty Lund (formerly of Cobra High ). Drawing from canonical folkies like Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie, and sounding more than a little like other early-2000s acts like Lightning Dust and Samamidon, the group had its first album, Invitation Songs, recorded and ready to go within months of PGMG's breakup. Matador picked up the trio soon after Invitation Songs arrived in late September.
Now, after much success they will bring their unique sound to the Roisin Dubh for their only west of Ireland gig next Tuesday at 9pm.
Tickets are available from the Róisín Dubh, Zhivago, and Redlight Records.
