Robyn G Shiels – The Blood of the Innocents


Six years in the making, Belfast-based singer-songwriter Robyn G Shiels will sigh a breath of relief on Saturday, May 31, when he launches his long-awaited (not to mention, truly exceptional) second studio album, The Blood of the Innocents.

Set to take place at Belfast’s Black Box from 8pm, the show will also feature support from Jonny Black of LaFaro and a DJ set from Clive Moore. An array of guests are also expected to make an appearance on the night.
