The Garbos venue at Mayo Leisure Point have a great weekend of music coming up.
This evening Friday, November 1, Folkism will presents The Remedy Club - a fantastic roots/Americana duo.
The Remedy Club are a husband and wife Americana/Roots duo comprising KJ McEvoy and Aileen Mythen. The duo have been described as ''a classic, rich and wholly authentic country-roots sound with vocals to die for" by FATEA magazine.
McEvoy has been singled out for praise as a guitar player of great expressiveness and technical aplomb and Mythen for her stunning vocal performances.
They released their album Lovers, Legends & Lost Causes in 2017, which received rave reviews in Ireland, the UK and further afield. The album was produced by The Remedy Club at Astakalapa Studios, Gorey, Co Wexford and was mixed in Nashville by five-time Grammy award winning Ray Kennedy (Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams, Willie Nelson ) and Mark Petaccia (Jason Isbell Lindi Ortega ). It features some of Ireland's finest musicians, including Kj's sister, Eleanor McEvoy, on strings.
The Remedy Club have recently recorded their brand new album in Nashville. It was produced by Ray Kennedy and includes a stellar cast of musicians including Lex Price (Neko Case, KD Lang ), Lynn Williams (The Wallflowers ) and legendary multi-instrumentalist, Rory Hoffman. They are currently gearing up for a single release in the coming months and the album will be released early 2020. Special guests on the night will be Castlebar singer/songwriter Paul Greenan and Westport duo Union Avenue.
Then on Saturday night it is the turn of Mississippi Sheiks to take to the stage, who pay homage to one of the greatest guitarist who ever lived - Rory Gallagher - Ireland’s very own guitar prodigy. The Mississippi Sheiks from the West of Ireland, Rory’s own stomping ground for those early stages of his life, are a dedicated, hard-working, no frills, energetic, power trio. Sharing his music around Ireland at every given opportunity they continue to be inspired by Rory’s life and music.
