Catch The Mary Wallopers streaming live from their home on Good Friday.
Ahead of their upcoming live-streamed gig, The Mary Wallopers have shared a video for 'Home Boys Home' – recorded live on a boat in Co. Mayo for Other Voices. In the video, the Dundalk folk trio embrace the nautical theme of the traditional song, famously recorded by the Dubliners, with the help of Ballina's River Moy Search and Rescue.
Following the success of their St. Patrick's Day gig, The Mary Wallopers are currently gearing up for their highly anticipated second gig – streaming live from the pub in their sitting room at 8.00pm on Good Friday, April 10, via YouTube.
Like countless musicians across the country, the group have been heavily impacted by gig cancellations and social restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic. However, they've creatively risen to the challenge – putting on an unforgettable hour-and-a-half live show from the safety of their home on St. Patrick's Day.
"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 last month, The Mary Wallopers have rescheduled their highly anticipated headliner at Whelan's, Dublin for August 21.
