Murder Murder (CAN) in Ireland, 12-15 May 2016

Thanks to the UK agency G Promo PR for the news that the six-piece Canadian bluegrass and 'outlaw country' band Murder Murder (above) will be touring in Ireland and Britain from 12 May to 5 June in support of their second and latest album From the stillhouse, which is due for release on 24 June.

Murder Murder (also on Facebook and Twitter) consists of Jon Danyliw (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Sam Cassio (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Geoff McCausland (fiddle), Barry Miles (vocals, banjo, dobro), Kris Dickson (upright bass), and Steph Duchesne (percussion). Their repertoire is based on murder ballads, influenced by the dark, lawless and violent frontier period in Northern Ontario.

Lonesome Highway says: 'Think along the lines of punk-infused old-time music, Springsteen’s Seeger sessions, and a touch of the Pogues, and you might have an approximate idea of what this six-piece band sound like.' Judge for yourself: From the stillhouse can be heard on Bandcamp, and G Promo PR provide two sample videos, ‘Where the water runs black’ and ‘The last gunfighter ballad’, a Guy Clark cover. Their shows here in May are:

Thurs. 12th: Colfer's, Carrig-on-Bannow, Co. Wexford
Fri. 13th: Whelan’s, Dublin 2
Sat. 14th: JJ Harlow's, Roscommon town
Sun. 15th: Brontë Music Club, Rathfriland, Co. Down

They then cross to Britain for a further fifteen dates (17 May-5 June). For more information, interview, session, or guest list requests, contact Geraint or Deb Jones at G Promo PR; phone +44 (0) 1584 873211; mobile + 44 (0) 7855 724798; e-mail.
