The BarleyShakes will take to the stage at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi on Saturday 11 – kicking off their East Coast tour on the back of live shows at Woodford Folk Festival.
This evening of Irish celebration will see The Barleyshakes joined by world famous flute player Alan Doherty aka ‘ALDOC’ direct from Ireland.
ALDOC’s music is a wide mix – Irish to African to hip hop to bluegrass – on the Irish wooden flute and vocals, and has been described as “global sounds breaking the sound barrier”. Alan has performed all over the world playing original and contemporary Irish music with none other than Christy Moore, Damien Dempsey and the band Grada.
The Barleyshakes are famous throughout the land for their modern yet traditional take on lively Irish music – intense energy, beautiful harmonies, and irresistible dance rhythms. Frontman Alan Kelly has won many awards for his songwriting, including the Queensland music award for world music.
This isn’t the first time Doherty and Kelly have collaborated – the two both recorded with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra for the award-winning Lord of the Rings soundtrack.
It’s a show not to be missed … to be sure to be sure!
