Novus ‘Later’ night is a new and unique opportunity to experience new and exciting original music from a number of exciting and diverse groups presented in a style similar to the great ‘Later… with Jools Holland’ shows.
Acts appearing on the night will be……
Vera Violent play compelling original music influenced by all that is good in rock’n’roll since the get-go of rock’n’roll. If you like your music fast and exciting with a personal and political edge, and you want a heady mix of anger and joy, then they’re for you.
“…unparalleled musical excitement comes in 3-pieces: Vera Violent” – Tunesmith Monthly
Tommy Hughes/Teresa Burke/Mary Travers The Puddletown Suite
This musical collaboration has been a work in progress over the last decade and has involved a number of people who have contributed to recordings and live performances. Each contributor has their own musical life outside of this collective to which some return periodically in order to liberate the songwriter from the noise in his head. To date this unhurried process has resulted in 2 CDs; Puddletown (2014) and The Girl Who Dives for Pearls in Puddles (2015).
Declan Askin/Brian Lennon/Bartholomew de Boer
Both Declan and Brian are members of the group Coda as well as being successful musicians in their own right – both in the traditional and classical genres. Bart is renowned musician and producer based in the Clew Bay Recording Studio. Together they create multilayered and exciting new songs that can be best described as alternative rock.
Gerard Mc Nally with Donal Hoban & Chris Darby
Westport musician Gerard McNally is a pianist, arranger, music director & second level music teacher & holds a Masters in Musicology from N.U.I. Maynooth. His compositions express elements of classical, pop & jazz styles as well as unorthodox metres, time signatures & formats, yet is very accessible to all tastes. He recently released an album of 12 original compositions entitled ‘Hiatus’.
This promises to be a great night for anyone interested in new and original music presented in 4 diverse styles.
