Scullion: The “LONG WAVE” Tour Autumn 2012


Triskel Christchurch – Thurs 27 SeptemberBook Tickets

Scullion have recorded a new collection of songs and to celebrate the band will be embarking this Autumn on their most extensive tour for many years.

The Tour will follow the launch of their new album “Long Wave” at Triskel Christchurch in Cork on Thurs 27th September.

The Album is their first in over 20 years, and includes a new version of Philip King’s “Fear” and an instrumental by Robbie Overson, among other new tracks.

This group of musicians, Sonny Condell, Robbie Overson and Philip King remain true to their eclectic musical roots, they are nourished by tradition, translate and deconstruct it, and transmit an individual musical experience for capacity audiences whenever they choose to perform.

These evenings will be special, intimate, warm and uplifting.

Speaking about the tour and the new album, band member Philip King said “there will be new music and a journey through the band’s back pages”

The music and songs of Sonny Condell are the foundation of the unique Scullion sound. His artistry is the creative beating heart of the trio, a trio that makes a mighty sound. These evenings will celebrate that sound.

This 2012 Autumn excursion will be their most extensive for many years and is not to be missed.

“Three decades equals a remarkable repertoire in Scullion’s world, most of it drawn from the creative genius of Condell, whose subtle lyricism and matchless melody lines bear scant kinship to anyone else on the planet” Irish Times
