It was a pleasure and a privilege to perform at Belfast Music Week. Thank you to all of you who crammed into Katy’s Bar to see us play and apologies to those who tried to get but couldn’t.
State Magazine were there to document the event and their review is now online. Of our set they have this to say;
” Singer-songwriter Tom McShane and his band set up in an extremely cramped Katy Daly’s to perform tracks from his recently released debut album The Ural Winter. McShane’s retro style of ’50s Americana suits the intimate setting and vice versa; it’s easy to imagine the understated charm of songs like ‘Fighter’ going down well in a distant Speakeasy, and McShane’s subtle storytelling and stage presence are all too capable of taking you there. The buzz around the Dundrum native may have died down somewhat since his album release, but he surely stands as one of the country’s brighter stars right now.”
Thank you to Andrew Lemon for the review. You can read the complete review of the event here.
