Time: 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm
Northminster Presbyterian Church
Sound & Spirit presents: The Jeremiahs
Friday, February 28, 7 p.m.
Have there ever been better storytellers than the Irish? Is it the weather or the pubs or the ancient legends that prompt and nourish stories that spill from lips to finger tips? With fiddle, flutes, guitar and vocals, The Jeremiahs arrive in Indy with their own brand of Urban Folk Music. Described as “one of the most exciting bands to come out of Ireland in many a year” The Jeremiahs will deliver Sound & Spirit, Friday, February 28, at 7 pm.
The Jeremiahs were formed in Dublin in 2014 and are now comprised of Joe Gibney, James Ryan, Jean-Christophe Morel and Julien Bruneteau.. The group became very popular very fast in Dublin’s folk music scene and critics have continued to be impressed with their take on traditional Irish music and themes. Attributing much of it to the voice of Joe Gibney (winner of Live Ireland’s 2018 Male Vocalist of the Year) fans have carefully watched The Jeremiahs take the root of traditional composition and ,“rather than beat, reels, jigs and songs” into submission, have delivered lyrics of 21st Century relevance.
Gibney (vocals) and Ryan (guitar) are Dubliners while Morel (fiddle) and Bruneteau (flute) are French and classically trained. Their collaboration (Live Ireland’s 2018 Album of the Year) brings a lot of talent and experience to the table. Noted by one critic, they are rooted in Irish tradition but have grown something special.
Expect a concert that shares vocals and instrumental storytelling equally, fresh and familiar, ancient legends made new.
