Rough Sunday

Rough Sunday are the songwriting duo Amhlaoibh McSweeney & Diarmuid Wolfe, two young musicians from the West Cork Gaeltacht. A background check reveals that they have achieved a local reputation as quick-witted, sensitive music-makers and wordsmiths, using nothing but their naturally-accented voices and two acoustic guitars. Producing a wholly original sound which escapes the remit of better known genres, Rough Sunday’s music takes the communal energy of a Corkonian Saturday night session, mixes in some youthful Punk Rock antics, sprinkles it with colloquial poetry and knocks it all out with smiles that playfully suggest, ‘we-know-something-you-don’t-know-ha-ha-ha.’
