AUGUST WELLS plays The Workmans Club

Dublin native Ken Griffin brings you his musical project formed in New York; August Wells.

Ken Griffin, the man who brought you other productions such as Roller-skate Skinny, Kid Silver and Favourite Sons, now brings you his latest musical project August Skinny, set to play The Workmans Club Sunday April 15th. The project, which was formed in New York, has been described as 'strange other worldly chamber music', 'Sinatra singing Lou Reed songs,' and 'The secret marriage of Willie Nelson and Lee Hazelwood.' Their debut album 'A Living & A Dying Game,' has had a huge impact on the underground music scene over in New York and is set to go down well with the Irish too. They already have a follow up album called "Madness Is the Mercy,' which has been described as a 'wonderfully crafted piece of art.'

2018 is shaping up to be another busy year for August Wells with touches already being made to the final stages of their third studio album. We don't see them slowing down anytime soon so you better hop on the band wagon while it's hot.

Tickets are available now from Ticketmaster.ie and are a nifty €13.
