Tickets: €15 (+booking)
We are delighted to welcome Join Me in the Pines to DeBarras.
Following on from the Join Me in the Pines’ solo tour in February, Dave Geraghty (the man behind JMITP) has just announced a May/June full band tour which will preview the bold new musical direction. ͞I really enjoyed getting back out there on the recent Feb solo tour, but I’m so excited to perform the new album with the JMITP band in May & June. The reaction to the new songs in February was great but it’s time to get the groove on with the band.͟In his more recognisable role, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter David Geraghty has been a driving force behind Bell X1 since the band’s inception 20 years ago, Running alongside his Bell X1 work, 2007 saw Geraghty embark on a solo career. The debut release ͚Kill Your Darlings͛ was received to critical acclaim and followed up in 2009 with the equally evocative ͚The Victory Dance͛. Geraghty͛s solo work has been short-listed for accolades such as the Irish Meteor Award and the Choice Music Prize. He has shared the stage with many inspiring acts including Joan as Policewoman and Yann Tiersen. In recent years, the multi-talented Geraghty has been composing music for Film & Television. In 2014 Geraghty released his third solo album ͚Inherit͛; but this time under the title ͚Join Me in the Pines’. 2018 marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter and a move away from the brooding dark folk of previous albums, embracing instead joyous music with flashes of Prince, Bowie, Gary Numan, Nile Rodgers.
