We’re delighted to be working with Joshua Burnside for the first time!

Joshua Burnside is an experimental folk songwriter, singer and producer. He takes influence from alternative electronica and Irish traditional song heritages, chopping and blending them with a mixture of found sounds, world music and unorthodox production methods.

‘Joshua Burnside is the best songwriter in Ireland right now, and probably beyond’ – Phil Taggart, Sirius XM

‘Rumbling, brooding, powerful, magnetic’ – The Irish Times

Tour support comes from Lemoncello. Lemoncello are amongst the brightest lights of contemporary Irish Music. Prodigiously talented and accomplished musicians in their own rights, together they are a unique and rare offering. Musically, they echo the profound integrity of Folk with song writing that is modern, never anachronistic. There’s a special deftness to Kinsella’s cello which weaves and underpins Quirke’s vulnerably introspective and knowing lyricism delivered with gentle defiance.

Live performances are filled with chemistry and humour, ‘intoxicating and sassy’ (The Journal of Music 2020). They charm audiences with charisma and personality that is irresistible and comparable to the luminaries of French Chanson, Brel and Piaf. As seasoned musicians they have collaborated with esteemed artists including Joshua Burnside, David Keenan, Sam Amidon, Lisa O’Neill and CMAT, and performed in Dublin’s legendary Vicar Street, Other Voices, CCI Paris, and Áras an Uachtaráin at the invitation of the President of Ireland.

2023 will see the release of Lemoncello’s highly anticipated debut album produced by Julie McLarnon (Analogue Catalogue Studios).

This show takes place in The Lodge – the brand new gig room on the ground floor of The Deaf Institute.
