If you’re going to sing, sing an Irish song. Preferably a new one, ’cause we’re all past sick of the Paddywhackery at this point, now.

Throw this on if you need a start: twenty-one tracks from the current generation of Irish independent artists, across a multitude of genres and traditions, plus a bonus track with the Bodger seal of approval.

Who’s doing it live?

These lads, almost.

The second episode of This Ain’t No Disco – premiering on Paddy’s Day with a special screening.

Writes the team:

In association with St. Patrick’s Festival, Episode II of This Ain’t No Disco will be premiered in The Sugar Club, 6pm on St. Patrick’s Day, followed by beats from the harbourmaster himself Mr. Donal Dineen. For anyone who would prefer to watch from the safety of their own homes, stay tuned for a general release online at 8pm!

In this second episode expect more live music from breaking Irish artists, and follow Donal Dineen and Myles O’Reilly as they visit New York with one of Ireland’s brightest stars (to be revealed on the night!) who will be spending time with American contemporary composer Nico Mulhy at his Manhattan studios.

Our journey collaboration for this episode has been made possible with the kind support of St. Patricks Festival. Visit the link below for booking details, with 200 free tickets to be issued in the coming weeks.

Step right up, folks.
