ROOTS ROCK/folk-pop band The Amazing Apples will be playing the Electric Picnic festival in County Laois on September 2.
The Galway band will thus be joining a line-up which includes The Cure, Patti Smith, Elbow, and Sigur Rós. Before that though, the Apples will play two dates at Monroe’s Live - Sunday August 19 and Friday 24.
This year has been a busy one for the band, with the release of their debut EP 3 or 4 Shoes and there were also support slots with Mumford and Sons, The Saw Doctors, and Damien Dempsey. they have also shaken off the cover band tag and now perform original songs, fusing Irish and American folk.
