Jem Mitchell - Capturing life as it is

It’s funny how you find certain artists. I often spent house searching in the web for bands and artists to feature on the blog, searching through different sites, looking on Youtube and then you have the radio on while cooking the dinner and a song comes on that intrigues you, ¬†you wait to hear the […]

Sunday School Sessions - A folk/eirecana collective exploring the genre

It’s a wet and clod day here on the west coast of Ireland. It’s confined me indoors. So what better time than to explore some new music. This week I feature, what I think is probably Ireland’s first americana supergroup: Sunday Sessions. Sunday Sessions was formed by engineer and producer Ian McNulty. Ian spearheaded the […]

NC Lawlor  - An enthralling one man blues showcase

,

As it’s a nice relaxing Sunday, I decided to go in search of some nice relaxing music to blog about. Instead I came across the raw blues and lap-steel of NC Lawlor. Honest, humble and stirring, his sound is perfect for Sunday evenings. Long-time busker NC Lawlor has been prolific on the blues and roots […]

Elder Roche

Well this week’s find is a bit left-field for Eirecana. What that means I’m not entirely sure. I can tell you it’s not americana but it has familiar melodies, it’s not alt-country blues but it has plenty of soul. This is the sound of Elder Roche. There is not much in terms of bio for […]

Often I come across artists that I feel as though I have written about when in fact they’ve just become embedded in my subconscious having seen them so frequently on social media, gig listings, magazine interviews and reviews. Every time I […]

I have changed jobs recently and when these sort of things happen, it’s sad that it is something like the blog takes the biggest hit. Anyway from today a promise, my commitment to regular updates and features. There […]

I was shocked to check in here and learn that I have not posted on here since the third week of October. That is almost a month ago. That is probably the longest Eirecana has gone without posting. It is a sad state of affairs. I could say that the radio show is keeping me […]

Well I realise that it has been a long while since I did a proper blog post on Eirecana. I apologise to you the reader, about that. I have been concentrating on the radio show lately to the detriment of what this blog is all about; simple posts on music for your reading and aural […]

Markas Carcas

Following on from my experience at Jack of Diamonds, as I said in the last post, I have a renewed vigour for the americana and alt-country genre now. Coming across some damn fine musicians helps too. So you have Marcus Carcas to thank for this post. Markas Carcas is Mark Flynn (not to be confused […]
