The Eskies (Ireland)

The Eskies Press Shot.jpg

Rhythm Section presents Ireland’s The Eskies as they bring their unique brand of folk noir / gypsy jazz / sea shanty and swaggering stage spectacle to Australia in 2018.  The band have been rousing ballrooms and booze houses far and wide, sullying soirees and lowering inhibitions of get-togethers and social occasions wherever they have ventured.

Purveyors of music that meanders from sea soaked waltz to Italian tarantella, from Brassy funeral march-esque lament to weep along Klezmar knees up, from chain gang holler to rag time finger snap. Skipping through the dark side of anything that makes you want to dance, steeped in melodrama and usually with not a small amount of tongue in cheek.

Their debut album "After The Sherry Went Round" is in shops now and is also available for download from iTunes.
