A night of Irish indie-folk and Scottish baroque-pop with Storm the Palace, The Finns and Miriam Donohue.
Storm the Palace are an Edinburgh- and London-based five piece who combine elements of baroque-pop and traditional folk with menacing melodies and cinematic flare. Provocative lyrics and contrasting emotions are brought to life by a mix of vocal harmonies, guitar, piano, accordion, mandolin, bass guitar and drums.
Featured on BBC 6 Music and Radio Scotland, Storm the Palace toured the West Coast of America and the UK last year, and are gathering pace in 2017 with the impending release of their debut album Snow, Stars and Public Transport via Seattle label Abandoned Love Records, and an accompanying tour of the UK and – for the first time – Ireland. Their Cobblestone show coincides with the album’s release date, and the band are looking forward to celebrating with a heady night of music in one of Dublin’s finest folk pubs.

The Finns are two brothers, Ciarán and Hugh, who have been entertaining crowds worldwide for years with this duo and as members of the band Na Fianna. As a duet with their chosen weapons of guitar, banjo, tenor guitar and harmonica, however, they are now being raved about by the best in the business and are ones to watch this year.
Ciarán and Hugh demonstrate an amazing musical understanding between them as they play energetic indie/alternative folk roots music to get the heart going with entertaining riffs, powerful lyrics and pulsating rhythms. They captivate very quickly with their intense love of performing their own music.
These guys are new and exciting. Come see them live and become a fan.

Miriam Donohue is a gifted songwriter, musician and storyteller, originally from Galway but now based in Dublin. Subtle melodic turns, assured velvetine vocals and Miriam’s ability to write quirky, catchy folk tunes make for an enchanting live performance. Her talents have been compared to Suzanne Vega, Laura Marling and Ingrid Michaelson, but she has a sublime voice all of her own.
Miriam Donohue has supported acts such as Martha Wainwright, Mark Geary, John Spillane, Jack L and Nina Persson (The Cardigans). She released her debut album ‘Paperscapes’ at the end of last year and in recognition of her talents has been selected by Irish music magazine Hot Press as one of the top up-and- coming Irish artists in 2017 and nominated for Best Female Vocalist in the Pure M Awards.
