A 10-piece collective of outstanding musicians interpreting the music of one of the greatest songwriters of our time, Bird on the Wire has already received rave reviews and will be touring across Ireland in 2019 and 2020.
Pauline Scanlon and The Whileaways along with their merry band will celebrate many of Cohen’s best-loved life works. They lead a masterful collective including Will Merrigan on bass, Dave Clancy on keys, Beoga legend, Eamon Murray on drums, together with strings and brass sections.
Pauline Scanlon galvanized the Irish music scene with her stunning debut album, Red Colour Sun, over ten years ago. As a solo artist and as a member of vocal duo LUMIERE, Scanlon has entranced audiences the world over with her distinctly delicate intensity. Pauline has performed and recorded with a wide range of artists including Damien Dempsey, Sinéad O’Connor, John Spillane and is a member of several high profile groups including Dønal Lunny’s Atlantic Arc Orchestra. Scanlon has presented several music-based Television programmes for both the BBC and TG4 in recent years and released her latest album ‘Gossamer’ in 2016 to critical acclaim.
The Whileaways are three powerful forces in Irish roots music, Noelie McDonnell, Noriana Kennedy and Nicola Joyce combine to create a beguiling tapestry of harmonies, tradition and beautifully crafted original songs. Their sound is simply captivating, enthralling live audiences and securing their firm footing in roots music both in Ireland and internationally.
Bird On The Wire started out as one show. It has grown during 2019, and the show has been performed at Westport Festival (2 sold Out Shows) Sligo Live Festival, 2 sold out shows in dublin and it will also be performed in the INEC Killarney, as well as the Clonmel show.
Following on from two Sold Out shows in the Pepper Canister Church in Dublin, The Bird On The Wire show will return to Dublin in May 2020 with their biggest headline show in the Olympia Theatre. There are more shows being added for 2020 all the time, such is the success of this great show.
