It’ll be goals and Guinness this weekend at Garveys in Eyre Square. With Electric Ceili, fresh from their appearance on Up for the Match, playing as part of the impressive Guinness Amplify concerts, rocking the crowds. And with the All Ireland Hurling Final replay on Saturday, punters at Garveys will get a free pint of Guinness every time the sliotar hits the back of the net at Croke Park.
Tim Murray (Electric Céilí 's founder and guitarist ) has gathered together a remarkable set of musicians. Gary Roche, Daire Bracken and Barra Mc Allister make up a powerhouse melodic trio of pipes, fiddle and flute respectively with Murray’s sublime acoustic triplets and stomps at its rhythmic centre. Add in keys virtuoso Peter Eades along with ex Clannad drummer Paul Moran, and the effect is quite something. At various intervals the band introduce rhodes, clavinet and hammond to the mix and give us a lesson in furious Gallic energy and technique without ever letting go of the spirit. Controlled energy instead of misplaced anger. The melody and fluid rhythm is inspired.
These six accomplished musicians have a love for Irish Traditional Music and always give 110% energy at each performance that is relentless and very exciting. They grab the audience from the very first beat right to the end. There's a world of experience and professionalism throughout the group as they have all recorded and toured with some of Ireland's best names in the business!
And it does not matter whether its Kilkenny or Tipp you are shouting for this weekend, because if you’re in Garveys, you’ll be hoping for a goalfest. Every time a goal is scored, you’ll get a free pint of Guinness, so you’re on a winner if both teams have their scoring hurls with them.
