Having sold out their first date on December 10th in less than 30 minutes, Dundalk folk sensations The Mary Wallopers have added a second date on Friday December 17th, 2021.
The Dundalk folk outfit are busy breathing new life into both well known and rare ballads on the Irish music scene. Travelling the length and breadth of the country singing & collecting songs, they exude a raw energy that could be described as the Clancy Brothers meet John Lydon.
Following the news of their Dublin headline shows, The Mary Wallopers have now announced gigs in Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham, London and Brighton next January. The trio will also play St. Luke's Cork in December 2021.
Made up of brothers Andrew and Charles Hendy, as well as Sean McKenna, the Louth ballad group have rapidly established themselves as a captivating force in Irish music – with their trademark combination of charm, irreverence, staggering talent and a fiercely DIY ethos.
Over lockdown, their live-streamed gigs from the Hendys' home in Dundalk helped them to build up a major online fanbase – following appearances on The Tommy Tiernan Show, and the Fontaines D.C.-curated Rock Against Homelessness night at the Olympia Theatre, Dublin in 2020.
The Mary Wallopers were also recently involved in Breaking The Silence – a live-streamed event from the National Concert Hall, featuring words and music in response to the legacy of Ireland's Mother and Baby Home Institutions.
