The new edition of the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' Y&E Series continues tonight – supported by the Department of Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht.
Kerry singer-songwriter Junior Brother has enjoyed a landmark few years – touring with The Proclaimers, Lankum, Glen Hansard and The Murder Capital. His debut album, Pull The Right Rope, released last year, was nominated for the Choice Music Prize Album of the Year.
Playing some new tunes – including 'No Country for Young Men' from his forthcoming album – and some old fan favourites, Junior Brother treated us to a beautiful set which included 'The Back of Her', and 'Witches Willow' from his first EP Fuck Off, I Love You. He also showcased his big guitar amp "for Big Joe Biden".
Watch Junior Brother's full performance below, and read on to see the rest of this week's lineup.
