The Once, and Marc O'Reilly play Rose's
The Once, Marc O'Reilly
Satuday November 6th at 9.00 pm in Rose's West End Bar, Lismore
Join us for an evening of fantastic live music in Rose's. Chase away those Recession Blues. Opening the gig will be Marc O'Reilly, a local singer songwriter who is at present recording and mixing his first album, to be released in November. Great lyrics, great vocals, wonderful guitar: catch him before he is famous!
The Once are a three piece from Newfoundland. The Once were nominated on October 7th for THREE Canadian Folk Music Awards to take place in November in Winnipeg. The Newfoundland group is up for Traditional Album, Vocal Group and New Emerging Artist of the Year.
"Just as the sea refuses no river, the Once turns back no listeners. These three Newfoundlanders gracefully and evocatively offer gem-like maritime music – foot-stomping shanties, heart-rendering ballads, salt-aired interpretations (of Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen tunes) and a cappella three-part harmonies thicker than Mama Cass’s midriff. The drinkable Geraldine Hollett is the pure-voiced starlet, riveting on the soloed Marguerite. Something singular is happening here, you bet."
