Niall Connolly Zagreb Debut – in association with Irish DFA

November 11 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

(for English version, please scroll down)

Niall Connolly kantautor je rođen u Corku, a danas živi u Brooklynu. Za njega kažu kako folku daje notu žustrine, a indie rocku pristupa kao pedantni zanatlija. Niall je rođen 1977. kada se rađao i punk. Otad je sakupio brojna iskustva, na pozornici i van nje, od kojih tka tapiseriju kojoj su potka riječi. Potom dolazi melodija. Harmonije se dodaju u studiju, a struja, iskrenost i humor na pozornici. U samoj srži svih Niallovih pjesama je priča koja se svakim novim slušanjem otkriva sloj po sloj.

Niall je imao veliko zadovoljstvo nastupati na festivalima, u veleposlanstvima, kazalištima i birtijama širom svijeta, od Glastonburyja, Prague Fringe festivala do CMJ-a. Smatra privilegijom što je pozornicu dijelio s umjetnicima kao što su MisterWives, Lambchop, Evan Dando, Mick Flannery, Glen Hansard i John Spillane, koji su dio njegovog pratećeg benda i njujorške glazbene scene. Surađivao je i s Neilom McCarthyjem, Stephenom Murrayem i Billyjem Ramsellom, pjesnicima s kojima je radio na raznim pjesničko-performerskim projektima.

Dođite u Booksu i poslušajte Nialla kako izvodi pjesme sa svog zadnjeg albuma nazvanog Dream Your Way Out of This One kojeg je Chicago Tribune opisao kao „sjajan, razoružavajući i predivno izbrušen folk-pop”, a dodali su i kako je „Connolly dovitljiv pripovjedač i kantautor kojeg ne valja propustiti”.

Niallu će se ovoga puta pridružiti i njegov drug, pjesnik, performer, putnik i drag prijatelj Bookse, Neil McCarthy.

Pridružite se! Što nas je više, tim nam je bolje.

MOLIMO, SURAĐUJTE! S obzirom da se ulaz ne plaća, svi novčani prilozi u škrabicu su dobro došli i sve što se skupi ide umjetnicima!

Cork-born, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Niall Connolly brings the urgency to folk and the finely-crafted story to indie rock. Born in 1977, alongside the birth of punk, Niall collected a bounty of experience both on and off the stage and has woven it into a tapestry of words. Then came melody. Harmonies added in the studio. Electricity, sincerity, and humor on the stage. At the core of every Niall Connolly song is the story, one that unfolds a layer with each listen.

Niall has had the great pleasure of playing festivals, embassies, theaters and dive bars all over the world including Glastonbury, the Prague Fringe Festival, and CMJ. He has had the privilege of sharing the stage with the luminaries in his band and in the Big City Folk music scene, as well as MisterWives, Lambchop, Evan Dando, Mick Flannery, Glen Hansard, and John Spillane, to name a few. He has also collaborated with such poets as Neil McCarthy, Stephen Murray, and Billy Ramsell in various Voice and Verse projects.

Come to Booksa and listen to Niall perform songs from his latest album Dream Your Way Out of This One that Chicago Tribune described as “Terrific. Disarming and beautifully crafted folk-pop” and added that „Connolly is a witty storyteller and a not-to-be-missed songsmith.”

Niall will be joined by his fellow artist, poet, globe trotter and a dear friend of Booksa, Neil McCarthy.

Join us! The more the merrier.

PLEASE, COOPERATE! Since the entrance is free, please do contribute to the collection plate, the entire sum goes to the artists.
