FOLK BANDS Old Hannah and The Mariannes, both of whom draw on Irish folk, roots, and Americana, pla a double headline show at Monroe’s Live on Thursday August 6 at 9pm.

Sligo's Old Hannah - Anthony Mannion (dobro/guitar/vocals ), Lucie Crichlow (guitar/vocals ), Luke Mercer (guitar/vocals ), and Leo Morris (banjo/guitar/vocals ) - are firmly rooted in old time sounds, bluegrass, western swing, country, and three-part vocal harmonies. They recently released their EP, Iron and Wood, the follow-up to their debut EP Irish Boys, which features The Waterboys' Steve Wickham.

Dublin's The Mariannes have been described as offering "fresh, beautifully crafted and delivered material with a broad appeal," by TradConnect, who said they "could very well become a household name"; while State.ie said they were "too good to remain a secret for much longer". The band are Lisa Loughrey (vocals/guitar ), Joe Maher (lead guitar ), Eamon Cassidy (bass ), Gearóid Ó Broin (piano/guitar/banjo ), Jack Cassidy (mandolin/glockenspiel ), and Nathan Maher (drums ). Their song 'Lost With All Hands', was selected by a panel of judges including Niall Toner (RTÉ Radio 1 ) and Finbarr Clancy (The High Kings ) as the winning song at the inaugural song contest of the 2014 Clancy Brothers Festival. Another notable song is 'Black Diary Waltz', filmed live in Dublin:
