    The Eskies

    McHugh's Basement



    Dublin-based five piece The Eskies bring their unique brand of folk noir/gypsy jazz/sea shanty and swaggering stage spectacle to the intimate stage of McHughs for the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival on May 10.

    Meandering from seasoaked waltz to Italian tarantella, from Brassy funeral march-esque lament to weep-along Klezmar knees-up, and from chaingang holler to ragtime finger snap. Skipping through the dark side of anything that makes you want to dance, steeped in melodrama and usually with no small amount of tongue in cheek. Check out 'Jesus Don't Save Me'.

    Tickets cost £10 from CQAF. Doors open at 8pm.
