Yet again, time since last month has whipped past at an incredible pace, bringing with it the promise of another fantastic line up for The Medicine Sessions on Thursday May 10th. May’s line up includes some of the finest emerging and emerged original talent in the Country and will include beautiful voice, music, imagery and words!
FOXGLOVE, is the creation of Niamh Murphy a singer songwriter incorporating lush arrangements to her songs which her easy, Celtic tinged voice delivers with genuine talent. Foxglove have been gigging almost constantly around Ireland leading up to the release of their EP, ‘Crazy At The Helm’. Hotpress short listed their song ‘Land’s End’ as one of only a few out of thousands to make an up and coming shortlist and another song ‘Winter’ has appeared on an Irish compilation CD. Niamh’s set will be well worth the journey to see in the intimate surroundings of The Medicine Room.
HORSEMEN PASS BY. Live guitar, vocals and keyboards, coupled with digital beats and projected visuals will leave the audience members stunned. This band create an all encompassing experience that you won’t find easily very often. Their set will include creations from their up-coming new album. Witnessing this band is highly recommended no matter what genre of music you sway to, as this will be a chance to discover something truly original.
STEPHEN MURRAY will be our spoken word artist of the month and promises to be an act well worth hearing. His book ‘House Of Bees’ was released to much acclaim by Salmon Poetry Press in 2011. A typical review reads; “House Of Bees announces the arrival of a brilliant and unique voice into the realm of the contemporary Irish poetry scene.” Stephen’s poetry is deeply personal and full of dark wit and is delivered in passionate, rhythmical style. Last year he cycled across America to read in coffee houses and poetry venues from his book and now works as director of InspireIreland, a job which sees him travelling the country to inspire and promote poetry to Ireland’s youth.
And some sneaky peeks for Medicine followers.
