THE LOGUES SET TO HEAD OFF TO DUBAI FOR ST PATRICK'S DAY CELEBRATIONS
The Logues have been called “The most progressive folk band in Ireland” by AMA Music Agency, and that they are, with their very own brand of music known as “whiskey-soaked folk”. The Castlederg band are set to head off to Dubai next week, where they are headlining the annual St Patrick’s Day Festival.
With songs flirting between a mix of The Pogues and The Lumineers, the Logues have a truly unique sound, and one, which can only be found in the small Co Tyrone town. After playing at the festival last year, there was a loud call from the ex-pats of Ireland, as well as the locals, to come back and headline the festival in 2016.
Made up of members – Kiel Cathers, Logan McCool, Christopher ‘Beers’ Speer, Jesse Darragh and Darrell Nelson, they certainly gave audience members a show to remember. The band have recently announced the news that they will be releasing a new album this Spring, to celebrate ten years together. The album launch will be taking place in Mid-Ulster’s newest live music venue, Lanyon Hall, on the 29th April.
Powered by passion and driven by dedication, The Logues are one band to watch out for.
