Merakindie Presents #2 @ The Sky & the Ground : Laurie Shaw w/ support from Saint Caoilian

Thurs Sept 28th / Doors 8pm / Entry e8

Following the huge success of our first gig with LE BOOM, we're very excited to be bringing SUPERB musicians to Wexford for our second night of our residency in The Sky. 

Laurie Shaw is a singer-songwriter hailing from The Wirral peninsula but now based in Cork City with his band the Swamp People. Shaw has recorded a plethora of albums including last years Felted Fruit, a psych-garage double LP released on Sunstone Records. All his albums are written and recorded at his parents home in Kerry.

Saint Caoilian releases his debut, The Faraway EP coming on the back of a year of prestigious support shows with Roy Harper, Ryley Walker and a recent tour around Ireland with Joan Shelley and Nathan Salsburg.

Playing guitar and writing songs since the age of fifteen, well worn through years in rock and roll bands he has very recently begun playing solo shows that reflect a folkier and sparser terrain. Backed with an electric guitar, a sense of entitlement and an overly sentimental view of almost everything - his music reflects a part of his record collection that hosts Paul Simon, John Prine and more recent luminaries like Bill Ryder Jones and Angel Olsen.
