Saturday 10 June at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi is sure to be a big night of Irish celebration and good times with THE BARLEYSHAKES full band, supported by JAM & SCONES.
Adored throughout Australia and beyond for their “bent” Irish sound, The Barleyshakes are winners of the Queensland Music Award for World Music.
Recently returned from their tours of NZ, Outback Queensland and FNQ, the Shakes (as they are often known) are keen to air lots of fresh material as well as lots of old favourites.
Ever since their inception in the 90’s in Dublin, The Barleyshakes have been turning heads. Their mission has always been to inject new life into Irish music while honouring the traditional past.
Their live shows have taken them around the globe and they continue to take audiences on a joy-filled ride wherever they perform – with intense energy, beautiful harmonies, and irresistible dance rhythms.
They use fiddles, flutes, tin whistle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, vocals, bass, bodhran, and drums to create their truly wonderful Celtic sound.
They have shared the stage with Christy Moore, Damien Dempsey, Lunasa, Metallica, Kila, Joe Cocker, Sharon Shannon, Altan, and Grada – to name a few.
After well over a decade together, this ensemble know each other so very well, creating something fresh every time they perform.
Supporting The Shakes is the 8-armed organism that is JAM & SCONES. Since forming in early 2022, they have burst onto the live music scene in Brisbane. If you’re looking for your every nerve to be electrified, you’ve come to see the right gentlemen, who complement rock, funk and reggae classics with groovy new arrangements. With their soaring horns, rich harmonies and energetic stage presence, Jam & Scones are not to be missed.
TICKETS: $27 (+ booking fee) through Oztix. 18+ event. Doors open 7.30pm.
