Lismore welcomes LOWmountain

Saturday July 2nd at 9.00 pm in Ballyrafter House Hotel, Lismore

The music of LOWmountain shares many traits of one of those old handwritten letters that’s found its way into history and continues to exist as a treasured heirloom, passing from generation to generation. It’s personal, it’s communicative and it offers a very real sense of a someone else’s place and time. Also, you’ll want to keep it forever.

For this West Cork three-piece, it’s all about great songs. Their often sparse, but nonetheless carefully-measured arrangements allow you, to find your own space in the music. Imagery and storytelling are at the heart of the lyrics, allowing you to take your own interpretation. Let the music of LOWmountain become the soundtrack to your place and time.

As well as headlining their own shows, LOWmountain have opened for acts such as Mick Flannery and Dog Tail Soup throughout the past twelve months. LOWmountain formed part of the line-up at last summer’s CorkXSouthwest festival alongside The Villagers, Lisa Hannigan, John Spillane and The Waterboys. LOWmountain are also to feature on the upcoming series of Other Voices 8 on RTE television shortly and have enjoyed significant airtime on RTE Radio 1 and both Cork’s 96FM and C103.

Influences range from Ryans Adams, Neil Young and Emmylou Harris to Bruce Springteen and James Taylor. LOWmountain are currently working on new material in Studio CPR near Baltimore, West Cork. Check or for sample tracks and information regarding new releases, gigs etc.
