Widely considered to be one of the finest songsmiths of his generation, Mark Geary begins his five-date autumn tour with The Strawhall House Band this Wednesday 16th October at The Workman’s Club, Dublin.
This will be followed by dates around the country, as follows:
Wednesday, 16th October – The Workman’s Club (Main Room), Dublin
Saturday, 19th October – Campbell’s Tavern, Headford, Galway
Thursday, 24th October – DeBarra’s, Clonakilty, Cork
Saturday, 26th October – Cleere’s, Kilkenny
Ahead of the tour, on Friday 11th October, Mark Geary + The Strawhall House Band released a new version of Mark’s song ‘Rosebud’, from his 2017 album, ‘The Fool’. The single also has a b-side, ‘Mockingbird’, written by Fiacre Gaffney and performed by The Strawhall House Band.
Mark Geary has just returned from sold-out tours in Italy and Switzerland.
The Strawhall House Band features Fiacre Gaffney, Jack Maher, Vinny Kilcullen and Mark Penny. The band’s repertoire includes covers by great songwriters such as Lowell George, Ry Cooder, John Hiatt and Guy Clarke.
It’s this infusion of Americana on the new version of ‘Rosebud’ that adds a distinctive layer which compliments Mark’s already unique style.
