HERMITAGE GREEN - EAST COAST TOUR JUNE 2013
Hermitage Green formed in July of 2010 in a locked back room of the Curragower Bar, Limerick. What started out as a spontaneous jam session between friends, soon developed in to a strong acoustic outfit with an original sound, for which the band has credited their contrasting musical tastes. These interests range from traditional Irish and folk music to Rock – and have formed the basis of an entirely unique approach in how the band delivers their material. In their first 12 months together they have played with several notable Irish acts such as Sharon Shannon, The Stunning and The Saw Doctors. Seeing Hermitage Green live, you can expect hard hitting rhythm sections driven by the tribal combination of bodhran and djembe, rhythmic guitar lines with dobro melodies and four part vocal harmonies soaring over the top.
"Enthusiasm and ambition is a refreshing quality in any band, and these five guys have shown it in bucketfuls. They’re certainly ones to watch, and with their fresh sound, to catch live – if you can manage to get tickets before they disappear." ¶nbsp; goldenplec.com
The band have had a busy two years since they got together – having honed their craft by playing everywhere from the smallest bars, to the pitch at Croke Park for an All Ireland Semi final, as well as travelling as far afield as The USA, France, Dubai, and Australia. After a series of sell out shows here in January, the band return to Australia this June in conjunction with the much anticipated British & Irish Lions Australian rugby tour.
