What it means to you?
tap & toe
Last but by no means least, The Earthship Stage, whose middle name is curation, sees a Friday bill veering on a honky tonk-country-meets-travelling-roadshow course, steered by the Campbells Tavern Crew with highlights including the 12-piece Tav Jam Band and the rockabilly boogie of Country Joe and the Hayride. The revered musical chops of ex-SawDoc Leo Moran and sometime-Waterboy Anto Thisteltwaite, also vye with the sheer manic exuberance of Aindrias de Staic & The Latchikos.
The rest of the weekend sees a more broader palette with The Amazing Few presenting and appearing on a Saturday line-up that travels from the pirate pop of The Eskies to the literal fuelling of the Earthship by the energy of The Punchface Champions and the drum’n'bass speaker shaking rhythms of the 3-piece that is WOB!. Sunday brings us back to our roots with singer-songwriters from various hues of the musical rainbow like Eileen Keane or Somerville sharing our stage with broader electronica and riddim-based acts including Tuam based composer and producer Willow Sea presenting a selection of hand-picked pearls whilst the fantastic and respected Cork-based Ruff Chuff Live Crew headline proceedings with a bit of dub heavy wibble and wobble to leave the Earthship in orbit.
