THE GALWAY music scene is the healthiest it has been in decades, with a wide array of bands and solo artists creating genuinely imaginative, quality, music across diverse genres.
The Galway based record label and collective, Citóg Records, has been a vital force in showcasing, and releasing, much of this music, and has played a key role in providing a platform for new and emerging Galway talent. That talent will be showcased with the launch of the new compilation album, Citóg Records Vol 3.
The album features singer-songwriters New Pope, Tracy Bruen (whose debut album Mirror was Galway Advertiser Album of the Year 2017 ), Eoin Dolan, Emma Lohan, Katie O'Connor, Kieran O'Brien, and Pa Reidy; the brilliant indie-rock band The Clockworks, who have been gaining attention nationally, as well as abroad via their London gigs and performance at Indie Week Canada; the mighty Steven Sharpe & The Broke Straight Boys; electro duo Grounds For Invasion; The Curly Organ, the solo project of My Fellow Sponges's Donal McConon; as well as Drown and Whim.
The album will be launched with a show at the Róisín Dubh on Thursday April 5 at 8.30pm with performances from Grounds For Invasion, Steven Sharpe & The Broke Straight Boys, New Pope, and a very special guest. Admission is free and all who attend will get a copy of the new album. See www.facebook.com/citogrecords
