AUSTRALIAN SINGER-SONGWRITER Matty Rea, a rising star in his own country, is coming to Monroe's Backstage Bar on Friday July 29 at 8pm as part of his upcoming British and Irish tour.
Matty has played Galway before, making a visit with his band in March, where they busked on Shop Street, attracting great crowds, and it was in his native Queensland that he started out busking. This led to travelling around Australia, Asia, and New Zealand, recording his first professional EP, and opening for Alt-J in London, and Keywest in Belfast and Galway.
Support is from John Martin Tierney. Tickets are €5. See www.monroes.ie
