The Brewery, Imperial Hotel Eumundi
☘️Tuesday 29 December at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi is sure to be a huge night of Irish celebration and good times with The Barleyshakes, featuring brand new material and lots of your old favourite Irish songs and tunes.
Last time the Shakes (as they are often known) played the Imperial, it was a total sell out, so early booking is advised.
The Barleyshakes are famous throughout the land for their modern yet traditional take on lively Irish music – intense energy, beautiful harmonies, and irresistible dance rhythms.
Brewed in Ireland and distilled in Australia, The Barleyshakeshave been performing since their inception in Dublin in 1995. They have a remarkable ability to hold hands with the tradition of Irish music while infusing it with a fresh and contemporary spirit.
Their live shows have taken them around the globe and they continue to take audiences on a joy-filled ride wherever they perform (they were a highlight at last year’s fire event for Woodford Folk Festival, where they performed to 20,000 revellers).
They use fiddles, flutes, tin whistle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, vocals, bass, bodhran, and drums to create their truly wonderful Celtic sound.
They have shared the stage with Christy Moore, Damien Dempsey, Lunasa, Metallica, Kila, Joe Cocker, Sharon Shannon, Altan, and Grada – to name a few.
After well over a decade together, this ensemble know each other so very well, creating something fresh every time they perform.
Frontman Alan Kelly has won many awards for his songwriting, including a Queensland Music Award for world music. Two members of the band also contributed to the Lord of the Rings award-winning soundtrack!
Their 8th studio album ‘Irishtown’ will be available on the night, and word has it that they have some very special guests making an appearance for the Eumundi show!
It’ll be a fabulous night … to be sure to be sure!
