In Their Thousands, Lemoncello
Date: Friday, September 27
Venue: Balor Arts Centre, Ballybofey
Time: 8.00pm / Cost: €10
Since first coming together in 2012, In Their Thousands have established themselves as one of Donegal’s finest ever bands. Four EPs of epic, finely crafted songs such as Carrickatine, Vive La Revolucion, Flicker and The Old Man and the Sea, have recently been joined by their first full length CD – the hotly anticipated and very well received Acrasia – recorded at Attica Studios, Termon. Earlier this summer, they performed at Germany’s largest world music event, the Rudolstat Festival and most recently at Electric Picnic’s Body and Soul Stage. In Their Thousands are Downings brothers Aidan and Declan McClafferty, their cousin Ruairí Friel from Fanad and their friend Martin Smyth from Malin.
Lemoncello are much in demand Donegal-Carlow duo Claire Kinsella and Laura Quirke, who make music together using four basic ingredients – guitar, cello and two voices. They met while studying music at Maynooth University, home to fellow Common Grounds Collective artists, Hatchlings and David Keenan. They released their debut EP, Stuck Upon The Staircase, in 2018 and have since performed all over Ireland, including at festivals such as Other Voices, Body and Soul, Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter Arts and Clonakilty Guitar Festival. Lemoncello’s second EP is due out this autumn.
Tickets for this event are available from The Balor Arts Centre, Balybofey.
