The Black Bank Folk Band Live at The Purty Kitchen
Friday, 20th September
Black Bank Folk release their highly anticipated second album, Last Star Fall, in Summer 2019. An album recorded through 2018 and early 2019 with producer Gavin Glass at Orphan Studios high in the Dublin Mountains and featuring a powerful duet with Damien Dempsey.
Black Bank Folk are a 5 piece band from Dublin, Ireland. Made up of members James Sheeran, John Colbert, Mark Colbert, Sharon Hussey and Sean McKeon.
The band bring together a plethora of musical influences from indie rock and Americana to Irish folk and traditional. The mix produces something contemporary feeling that, especially through McKeon and Hussey, still has echoes of the ancient. Much like the subject matter the songs discuss, the music is a reflection of where they’re from, unmistakably Irish but this is a changing Ireland.
Having debuted in 2016 with the critically acclaimed album Rising, a 1916 concept album, the band have gigged extensively around Ireland including appearances at Electric Picnic and Vicar Street support slots of fellow Northsider and sometime collaborator Damien Dempsey.
Sheeran explains about Last Star Fall:
“I suppose a lot of it is to do with letting go and saying goodbye – to various thins or people, and for various reasons. It’s a record about endings but also about beginnings and while there are dark moments, I really feel the hope radiates through. Breaking stuff down to build it up again. We’re delighted with it and excited about getting it out there for people to listen to.”
