Cronin return for for their most ambitious Irish gig to date – Friday 20th May, The Greville Arms Mullingar.
The Midlands band will be joined for one night only in Mullingar by Irish music legend Steve Wickham (The Waterboys) on violin and Anna Houston (No Crows) on Cello.
Steve Wickham needs no introduction in music circles with his acclaimed work with The Waterboys plying on such timeless hits as Fishermans Blues and The Whole of the Moon and was a founding member of In Tua Nua and played violin on the classic U2 song “Sunday Bloody Sunday”, as well as recordings by Elvis Costello, the Hothouse Flowers, Sinéad O’Connor, and World Party. Wickham plays both rock and roll and traditional Irish music, and has developed a rock music technique for violin he calls the “fuzz fiddle”.
Anna Houston has composed and recorded the soundtrack for various shows, and has performed with various acts including Mike Scott and Steve Wickham (The Waterboys), Dervish, Sligo Baroque Ensemble to name a few. Anna also teaches the Cello and Banjo at Sligo Academy of Music and holds numerous music workshops for kids. Anna has been playing Cello and Mandolin in Sligo Band “NO CROWS” since 2005.
The night will be an acoustic reworking delving into both the Cronin and The Aftermath back catalogue. The show will be recorded and filmed for a future release.
This show is Supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media and Westmeath County Council’.
