Event Details

Now and again, we meet people and it just works. Instantly at ease in each other’s company, conversation flowing like you are catching up on 20-years’ worth of news, and the fun, well it’s instant I guess and can take many forms. This is a scene of sorts in how the now named Garadice four-piece felt when they came together to work, co-create and ultimate perform in what was the fourth residency of The Leitrim Equation programme in 2014 approx. (Est. by Leitrim Co. Council in 2006). As a result of the time spent together in The Leitrim Equation residency and subsequent tour, the four-piece of Eleanor Shanley, Dave Sheridan, Padraig McGovern and John McCartin had decided to work together and record an album. Garadice ,the self-titled debut album, was released last year. They present beautiful arrangements of songs and tunes, some original and some of which have not been played for over 200 years! A musical ensemble of such fine musicianship and creative soundness.
