Ahoy! The Harbour Bar crew announce this years Groove Festival stage line up!

Collage shot

2015 sees the return visit of the second stage from The Harbour Bar to Groove Festival at Killruddery House, Co Wicklow on July 4th and 5th 2015. Tickets are on sale now with main stage headliners Christy Moore (Sunday) and The Darkness (Saturday).

Groove Festival is delighted to welcome back the crew from Bray venue The Harbour Bar. Last year the stage was a hotbed of Irish talent and this year again they have curated a superb line up, expect performances to remember! The venue has become a hot spot for talent over the last few years with amazing artists and bands. The Harbour Bar sits directly opposite Bray harbour and is the perfect spot for a pint by the sea. Surrounded by chiming sailboats and the resident bevy of swans, it is the most unique pub in Bray with the stories to prove it.

Saturday 4th July

Toasted Special, Bunoscionn, Mark Geary, Corner Boy & The Cujo Family.

Sunday 5th July

Stomptown Brass, The Bionic Rats, Maud in Cahoots, Tucan & The Eskies

Conor Duggan from The Harbour Bar said “We’re delighted to have been asked back to Groove Festival again for 2015. Last year gave The Harbour Bar a brilliant opportunity to showcase some of the incredible talent we have performing in our live lounge all year round, in a brand new environment. This year will be no different – we have a fantastic line-up of acts (and as is the norm in The Harbour, from a hugely varied cross-section of styles) to entertain over the two days of the festival. We look forward to seeing families and friends of all ages, with hopefully some new folk as well dancing in the sunshine in Killruddery House again this July.”

DJ Fresh new single with Adam F “Believer” out June 5th 2015

unnamed

Following the recent UK Top 5 success of ‘Gravity’ ft. Ella Eyre, legendary DJ/producer DJ Fresh has teamed up with Adam F on the new single ‘Believer’.

Scheduled for release on June 5th via Ministry Of Sound Recordings, ‘Believer’ pays homage to Renegade’s classic ‘Terrorist’ – a breaks-driven old skool jungle anthem that became synonymous with UK underground dance culture during the 1990s. ‘Believer’ employs a classic breaks sound – underpinned by rumbling bass licks and fuzzy low end – and pitches it against a powerful, club-centric vocal that adds to the depth, energy and overriding soul of the record.

Combined with vocals from Yola Carter, ‘Believer’ is testament to both DJ Fresh and Adam F’s vibrant, genre-blurring musical outlooks combining the underground credibility of a seminal classic with contemporary verve and polish to great effect and feels ready to make a real impression throughout the summer.

Christy Moore & The Darkness Headline Groove Festival 2015! 

#Groove15

Groove Festival announced today that Irish music legend Christy Moore will headline Sunday July 5th and UK rockers The Darkness will top the bill for Saturday 4th July 2015 at Killruddery House, Co Wicklow. In its third year, Groove Festival is now on the map as one of the summer’s not to be missed weekends. Tickets will go on sale from Tuesday 14th April from www.groovefestival.ie or www.tickets.ie with tickets starting at €49.50 plus booking fee.

The Darkness have just completed an eleven night sold out Irish tour and will release their new album “Last of Our Kind” on June 1st 2015. The Darkness are set to rock Groove with a set list to including many of their hits such as “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” and “Love is Only a Feeling” plus many more. Get the Groove party started with The Darkness!  The band will headline the festival on Saturday July 4th.

Sunday 5th July sees a truly special festival headline show from the iconic Christy Moore. Groove Festival will be Christy’s only Irish festival appearance of 2015! With the spectacular setting of Killruddery House this will be an evening not to be missed. Christy will be joined by Declan Sinnott and Jim Higgins performing a special set which will create an exceptional evening on July 5th.

Also announcing the first round of support acts.

Saturday night really will rock with The Riptide Movement supporting The Darkness. The Riptide Movement’s third studio Album ‘Getting Through’ went straight in at number 1 in the Irish albums chart on the 1st week of its release in 2014. The success was much deserved for the hardest working band on the live circuit, who had built up a fanatical fan base around the country from extensive gigging and treating every show as if they were headlining the 3 Arena. This party will well and truly rock Killruddery!

Sunday will be musical treat with support from Kíla. It takes certain levels of skill and resilience for a band to exist for more than 25 years – not only that, but to maintain the nerve to change music from within – but Kíla have the necessary reserves of energy and creativity to have done precisely that. Kíla continue to attract massive crowds at festivals, frequently playing shows in Ireland (Electric Picnic, Festival of World Cultures), UK (Glastonbury), throughout Europe, and further afield, including Australia (Womadelaide), Africa (Zimbabwe) Borneo (Rainforest Festival) and many festivals in the US.

Further support acts will be announced shortly along with the line up for The Harbour Bar Stage, children’s area and more!

Fiach Moriarty “Revolution”. His new single taken from the forthcoming album “The Revolution”

Fiach Moriarty “Revolution”

His new single taken from the forthcoming album “The Revolution”

Released April 17th 2015.

Single front

“Don’t go to see Dublin’s own Fiach Moriarty unless you are totally prepared to fall in love with him”

-Evening Herald

Vive la revolution! Dublin singer Fiach Moriarty returns with his second album “The Revolution” which is due for release April 17th 2015. The album will be launched with the title track in March.

Lauded by the likes of Chris White of The Zombies “I was rendered speechless by his voice and songwriting. There was nothing I could say to this artist. Lyrically and musically he is one of the best singer/songwriters around.” Plus Irish legend Paul Brady “Fiach Moriarty is one of Ireland’s most talented singer-songwriters with a musical sophistication rare in the genre”. The time is now for the revolution to begin and Fiach Moriarty to claim his place as one of Ireland’s most impressive singers and songwriters.

Fiach’s second album, ‘The Revolution’ was heavily influenced by his childhood memories of taking to the streets of Dublin to march for various causes in the 80’s together with his family. The result is an album that tackle subjects such as The 1916 Easter Rising, World War 1 and Los San Patricios (the Irish brigade in the 19th century Mexican Army) yet is filled with a wide breadth of catchy hooks, clever lyrics and beautifully crafted songs.

REVOLUTION (Lyrics)

The revolution will be televised in a modern book

Face to face with a race that has been run to oblivion

But does anybody really care?

‘Free the Guildford Four!”

Was a slogan we would roar as we took to the streets

We were marching on our feet but we’re not marching

We’re not fighting no more war

You see I’m worried there’s a hole in your head

Where the rain is creeping in

And the drone of The Dead is beginning to seep in

And you’re giving up, giving up, giving up

The revolution will be criticised by the World elite

Unless it suits their agenda to overthrow those they’ve armed to the teeth

The revolution will be vilified in the media

Hypothetical in words and phrases,

Circling the cages

Scribbling in pages and hurling on a ditch of words

You see I’m worried there’s a hole in your head

Where the rain is creeping in

And the drone of The Dead is beginning to seep in

And you’re giving up, giving up, giving up

The revolution will be you and me

If you want it to be

Just as long as you don’t give it up, give it up, give it up, give it up

Give it up, give it up

Just as long as you don’t give it up, give it up, give it up, give it up

Give it up, give it up
