Seamus Egan Project
Seamus Egan Project
In 2017, Seamus Egan, founding member of the seminal band Solas, will be touring for the first time ever, as The Seamus Egan Project, bringing along friends and musical guests, and introducing fans to both the entirety of his immense and influential catalog of music, as well as new music he’s never recorded or performed live. Beginning with tunes from his groundbreaking album, When Juniper Sleeps, which was the impetus for the formation of Solas, through the 20 year recording career of this iconic band, along with new tunes, Egan will continue to explore the further reaches of the Irish tradition, and beyond.
The Mulligan Brothers
The Mulligan Brothers
From Mobile AL, the Mulligan Brothers have spent the last three years touring throughout the US and Europe, playing their brand of Americana Folk Rock.

The songwriting and warm, honest, straight-to-the heart voice of lead singer Ross Newell draws listeners into the group’s signature sound, where the harmonies of Greg DeLuca, Ben Leininger and Melody Duncan make the songs soar or haunt from the shadows. De Luca plays drums and Leininger is on the bass. Fiddler Melody Duncan joined the band last year, bringing a female voice and perspective.

The Mulligan Brothers have released three albums, The Mulligan Brothers , Via Portland (recorded in Portland with Grammy-winning producer Steve Berlin) and April 21, 2017 they released Live from The Netherlands album, recorded during the recent tour that included shows at the famed Paradiso in Amsterdam and a spot on The Ramblin’ Roots Festival in Utrecht. They currently have over 4 million plays on Spotify, including over 2 million of the song Lay Here.

The band kicked off 2017 with a return to the prestigious 30A Songwriter Festival in Florida, an appearance on Music City Roots Nashville, and return to Ireland for January-February tour dates followed by a spot on Cayamo 2017 - A journey Through Song, a 7 day Roots Music Cruise in the company of such artists as Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell and Steve Earle. This was followed by a third appearance at New Orleans Jazz Fest, a 3-week Scandinavian tour and a spot on the Americana Music Festival, Nashville. They are currently writing and recording songs for their fourth album for release early 2018 and will be headed out on the road to support the new release.
