IRISH rock’s best kept secret The Riptide Movement return to the INEC Killarney Acoustic Club Friday, September 15.
Speaking of the success of the latest album, Mal Tuohy, frontman of the band, said: “It has taken the best part of 18 months to write and record ‘Ghosts’, a journey that began somewhere between the Caragh river and the Seefin mountains of Glenbeigh, Kerry and came to completion in Tornillo, Texas, 30 miles east of the Rio Grande, under the guidance of Grammy award winning producer Ted Hutt. We feel it’s our greatest offering to date and we’re so excited to finally get it out to the world.”
Having blown the Irish music scene wide open in 2014 with their Number One, gold-selling album ‘Getting Through’, a string of Top 10 singles and various sold-out headline tours, the four piece – comprising Malachy Tuohy (vocals, piano and guitar), John Dalton (guitar), Gerry McGarry (bass & harmonica) and Gar Byrne (drums & percussion) – will be returning to Killarney after a very busy summer of festivals in Ireland and all over Europe. Irish singer songwriter Mundy performs in the INEC October 6 followed by folk-rock band Hermitage Green December 15.
