Irish Indie Legends in Whelan’s Next Friday

Three of Ireland’s indie legends are appearing Upstairs in Whelan’s next Friday, June 19. Martin Egan, former Power Of Dreams frontman Craig Walker (pictured), and Fearghal McKee, legendary frontman with Whipping Boy with his new Line-up (SSS), share a triple bill.

Egan, whose songs have been recorded by Christy Moore, Hothouse Flowers, will be performing brand new material, some of which was written with Eamon Carr of Horslips and Will Merriman of The Harvest Ministers.

Walker this year celebrates 20 years in the music business with a new album, Siamese, while McKee promises an evening of music ranging from late 19th Century anti-temperance songs to brand new material.

Tickets: € Wav, Ticketmaster.ie and on the door.
