first Dublin date since a sell-out residency in the Grand Social last
September, Scullion continue to be one of the most innovative forces in
Irish music today. Sonny Condell
the creative core and inspiration for the band continues to invent
innovative and write music and songs that are powerful, poetic, soulful
and joyful. He is one of Irelands most enduring creative artists and
with Robbie Overson and Philip King creates the signature sound that is Scullion.
Scullion’s back pages include the anthems, ‘Down In the City’, ‘Eyelids into Snow’ and ‘John the Baptist’.
Recent Scullion performances have sold out in a heart beat,
reconfirming their status as one of the best and most popular bands
Liffey Banks Sessions strive to offer their audiences impressive
line-ups, and this is certainly amongst our finest. Scullion’s special
guests for the evening are singer Iarla Ó Lionáird with guitarist Steve Cooney, who are currently working on an album together.
