Join the Mary Wallopers for ballads and stout talk this Good Friday.
Following the success of their St. Patrick's Day gig, the Mary Wallopers are back – streaming live from the pub in their sitting room at 20:00 on Good Friday, April 10.
Like countless musicians across the country, the Dundalk folk group have been heavily impacted by gig cancellations and social restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic. However, they've creatively risen to the challenge, by putting on an unforgettable hour-and-a-half live show from the safety of their home on St. Patrick's Day, via YouTube.
"We were thinking about doing another live stream since the last one was so much craic," the group reveal. "Now that we have a pub in our sitting room we might as well make use of it. Good Friday seems like the right time. It will be slightly different from the last one and we will have one or two special guests joining us through cyberspace!"
Following their set at the Fontaines DC-curated Rock Against Homelessness night at the Olympia Theatre, Dublin earlier this month, the Mary Wallopers also announced a headline show at Whelan's, Dublin on April 24. They've also kept busy with an acclaimed performance on the Tommy Tiernan Show.
The Mary Wallopers' trademark charm and irreverence is matched only by their staggering talent – as evidenced by their rendition of 'Cod Liver Oil and The Orange Juice' from their 2019 EP, A Mouthful Of The Mary Wallopers:
