The Mary Wallopers
SOLD OUT| + Brògeal
Wed 22 Nov 2023
Revitalising Irish trad for a new generation, The Mary Wallopers have announced details of their second album, Irish Rock ’n’ Roll, coming October 2023 and a huge tour of the UK that runs from November through to Christmas.
It’s an album that manages to perfectly capture the chaos, humour and excitement of the band’s recent live shows whilst also showcasing the incredible emotional of the traditional ballads that they play.
The Mary Wallopers were formed by brothers Charles and Andrew Hendy and their friend Sean McKenna who began traveling the length and breadth of Ireland singing and collecting songs. During lockdown, they build up a huge online following playing livestreams from their home studio. In the years since, the band have expanded to a seven piece and built a fierce reputation as a live act.
“Rabble-rousing… hilarious… the Dundalk ballad band are tapping into the political power of folk, punk and hip-hop” Irish Times
Part Irish folk-punk and part Scottish indie trad, Brògeal are one of the most exciting prospects in Scottish music today. The 5-piece from Falkirk demonstrate a great gift for storytelling as well as their musical talent
