Gregory And The Hawk make their Irish debut in The Infirmary (Mardyke Complex), Cork, on June 21, with a gig Upstairs at Whelan’s on June 22. Support comes from Jean Elliot Senior (CrÃ«vecoeur).
Made up of native New Yorker Meredith Godreau, on guitar and vocals, alongside upright bass-player Mike McGuire, Gregory And The Hawk have become an internet phenomenon, via YouTube, MySpace and good old-fashioned word of mouth. Now signed to Fat Cat Records , they’ve just released the rather wonderful Moenie And Kitchi‘, the follow up to 2007’s In Your Dreams. Their whimsical, melancholic pop is nothing short of gorgeous.
