Do you enjoy lush live music?

Carol Keogh, formerly of The Plague Monkeys and one of the great underappreciated talents in Irish music, plays Whelan’s [Camden Street, Dublin] tomorrow night. It is the launch of Carol’s beautiful new album Mongrel City which, with titles such as ‘Forty Foot’, ‘Grand Parade’ and ‘Limbo Estate’, ring some of the cultural and political changes that the city, and the country, has been through in recent times.

Band members were Romy, Dave Hingerty (The Frames), Elton Mullally (The Tightrope Walkers), Martin Moran (The Tightrope Walkers) and composer, Colin J Morris and  guests included Colm Mac Con Iomaire and Bill Blackmore, who provided string and brass arrangements for a little touch of symphony.
