[b:32ecf0b8f9]John Edgar Voe[/b:32ecf0b8f9] is the latest musical venture from Martin J Corrigan ([b:32ecf0b8f9]Alloy Mental[/b:32ecf0b8f9], Corrigan). In a shift towards the country end of the spectrum, inﬂuences include Woody Guthrie, Thomas Jefferson and John Prine. He has joined forces with [b:32ecf0b8f9]Charlie Mooney (Desert Hearts), Robyn G Shiels, James Heaney (St Dudes) and Ben McAuley (Three Tales)[/b:32ecf0b8f9] to sing songs about women, ﬁghting, jail, death, drinking, God, freedom, larceny and love. Martin is currently working with producer David Holmes on a debut album.
Glasgow based [b:32ecf0b8f9]Ross Clark[/b:32ecf0b8f9] is enjoying the success of debut album You Brought Evil. Despite the inherent Scottish undertones itís a record that is almost unashamedly American in itís delivery with obvious comparisons to artists such as Bright Eyes, Ryan Adams and Bon Iver. Ross is spending early 2009 touring with [b:32ecf0b8f9]Frightened Rabbi[/b:32ecf0b8f9]t and looks forward to a rare Belfast appearance as part of the festival.
[b:32ecf0b8f9]Eskimos Fall[/b:32ecf0b8f9], fronted by Peter McVeigh are discovering a new love of acoustic music after appearances at The Belfast Nashville Festival. This gig will showcase their softer side offering a more stripped back acoustic sound and ﬁrmly disposing of that Ďjust another indie bandí tag.
New poster for this gig. Feel free to stick it up on your social network site of choice. And don't forget to get your tickets in advance of the show.
Been speaking to the lovely people in the Festival office and for those of you who are wary about buying things online, you can also get a nice wee printed out ticket in return for cold hard cash from the Belfast Welcome Centre beside Boots in the middle of town.
8.00 Doors. Get down early if you want a seat for this one.
8.45 Eskimos Fall
9.30 Ross Clark and the Scarfs Go Missing
10.45 John Edgar Voe
and then I'll be DJing the hell out of the place with drinking and probably dancing until 1am.
