The Toy Hearts in central Dublin TODAY

A reminder that the final show in the current tour in Ireland by the Toy Hearts (GB) will take place today (Sunday 6 November) in central Dublin, when the band will be playing in the Mercantile, 28 Dame St., Dublin 2. Thanks to Mick Dunne of Drogheda for bringing them over and setting up the whole tour.

Paul Lee of the Musiclee.ie agency, who arranged the Dublin appearance for the Toy Hearts, draws attention to the early start of the show: 5.00 p.m.. Admission is €15 (€13 if reserved in advance online).

The Toy Hearts have racked up an impressive record of achievement for a band from outside the US, including appearances at major festivals in Ireland, the Continent, and America. For more details on the band, see the BIB post of 11 September. The photo on the right shows Hannah Johnson (lead vocals, mandolin) and Sophia Johnson (vocals, lead guitar) of the Toy Hearts with Doyle Lawson in Bühl, Germany, May 2011 (photo: Jörg Neuner). Performance videos of them can be seen on YouTube (example: here), and a video of their single 'The captain' can be seen on their website.
