Hermitage Green return to Dolan’s ahead of Oz trip

Limerick band Hermitage Green
NOT content with selling out Dolan’s Warehouse twice in their fledgling career - the only Limerick act outside the Rubberbandits to do so - the merry folk quintet Hermitage Green return to home turf this Friday for a likely third sell-out gig in the venue.

NOT content with selling out Dolan’s Warehouse twice in their fledgling career - the only Limerick act outside the Rubberbandits to do so - the merry folk quintet Hermitage Green return to home turf this Friday for a likely third sell-out gig in the venue.

The band, who are quietly amassing a sizeable following on these shores and as far away as Australia and most recently at the Cannes Film Festival, are busily preparing a debut album, but are wisely allowing a head of steam to build up in Irish music circles first.

The group are gearing up for another tilt at success Down Under with a trip lined up later this month in Australia, so this might be the last chance for some time to catch them on home ground.

If you have yet to see the Golden Rule troubadours, expect four part harmonies, tribal drumming through bodhran and djembe, rhythmic guitars and bass lines, and an overall sense of a folk-rock band on the rise.
