The Eskies

The Eskies 21Oct

Cast out, blacklisted, rejected and ejected from gentlemen’s clubs far and wide, five dejected cast asides joined forces in what was to be their own celebration of commonality. Described as folk noir, gypsy jazz, sea shanty swaggerers, The Eskies (Dublin) are sure to have you clappin’, hollerin’ and maybe even reelin’ in no time!

Supported by Hop the Sea, this is set to be a powerhouse of an evening! Mikey Kenney, fiddler in the Liverpool Céilí band and The Saltcutters frontman, started discussing a cross-the-sea band with fellow Saltcutter Evelyn Broderick and Co. Down piper Sean Donnelly and a number of others to form a big band that would regularly cross the Irish Sea to meet and perform. This is them! @Hopthesea
