The Revelator Orchestra play Wexford tonight
They'll be joined by Colm Mac Con Iomaire in the Wexford Arts Centre.
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 10 Sep 2013
Writer, and sometime Hot Press contributor Peter Murphy and his collaborators – the producer and musician Acko, and singer/composer Paula Cox – premiere material from their upcoming album The Brotherhood of the Flood in Wexford Arts Centre this evening, Thursday (September 12).
Founder member of Kila and current violinist with The Frames and The Swell Season, the versatile instrumentalist Colm Mac Con Iomaire will support them on the night, which kicks off at 8.30pm.
Their debut album The Sounds of John the Revelator saw great acclaim with the trio being compared to a cross between Tom Waits, The Velvet Underground, and William Burroughs.
Since then they have played at a raft of venues in Ireland and the UK and delivered an ensemble performance on RTE 1's The Works and Arena on RTE Radio 1.
The upcoming album is inspired by material from Peter's latest novel Shall We Gather At The River.
Today, the book is published in the US (renamed The River And Enoch O'Reilly). To mark the occasion, Mr. Murphy has penned a guest blog in Huffington Post on the devil in Elvis.
