Makings EP Launch In Whelan’s

  • Published in News

Makings are quickly making a name for themselves in the Northwest of Ireland due to their annual St. Stephen’s Day event in The Balor Arts Centre, Ballybofey, Donegal, which has sold out the past two years running.

They are now making their presence known on the east coast after they closed out the Saturday night of Whelans ‘Ones To Watch 2019’ in the main venue with a blistering forty-minute set that crossed the T’s, dotted the I’s, filled the floor from start to finish and left everyone in attendance wanting more.

They return to the legendary venue on Sat 16th February upon the release their latest EP, and will embark on a short tour of Germany on 21st February, taking in Berlin, Kiel and Hamburg on their merry way.

Tickets for the EP launch are €10 and can be purchased from Whelan’s main website or www.makingsmusic.com





The 4 Of Us Hit Whelan’s

  • Published in News


The original line-up of The 4 Of Us returns to Whelan’s on Saturday December 1 for their first Dublin city gig since their triumphant turn at Feile Classical, where they proved to be a major highlight of the Trip To Tipp anniversary festival.

The full-band gig at Whelan’s will be a chance to catch the Murphy brothers in action before they before they embark on a UK tour in the New Year and head back to the studio to record their seventh studio album.

Interspersed by Brendan Murphy’s often hilarious stories and musings on the band’s three decades in music, the band’s set list features all the old hits, such as ‘Mary’, ‘Drag My Bad Name Down’ and ‘Sunlight’, as well as tracks from their recent critically acclaimed album, Sugar Island – including the radio favourite, ‘Going South’.

On TV, Brendan made an appearance this year on John Creedon’s popular Road Less Travelled summer series, giving the RTE presenter a tour of the backdrop for songs like ‘Mary’ and ‘Hometown On The Border’, another stand-out song from Sugar Island, about growing up in Newry during the Troubles.
