The Riptide Movement
Sunday August 13th
all proceeds go ChildVision Ireland
Support- NC Lawlor
Having blown the Irish music scene wide open in 2014 with their Number One, gold-selling album ‘Getting Through’, a string of Top 10 singles and various sold-out headline tours, The Riptide Movement continue their international rise with upcoming European and Worldwide release of their newest album ‘Ghosts’ amidst a run of upcoming Irish, European & US dates throughout the rest of the year.
‘Ghosts’ is a journey that began somewhere between the Caragh River and the Seefin mountains of Gleinbeigh, Co Kerry, and came to completion in Tornillo, Texas, thirty miles East of the Rio Grande, under the guidance of Grammy award winning producer, Ted Hutt. The result is an emotional listen and the perfect bookend for a concept album that opens up conversations that span the generations. There is an authenticity in everything The Riptide Movement do. It permeates their sound and defines their approach.
This charity event will be the very first show the guys have done in Whelan’s in a very long time and we are delighted that they agreed to support such a good cause. All proceeds for the show will go to Child Vision Ireland. Over 150 years old, ChildVision is the only place in Ireland totally dedicated to the education and therapy needs of blind and multi-disabled children.
Fellow busker and Ireland’s golden guitar player NC Lawlor will be the support. Nc has taking the international Blues scene by storm in recent years and this will be a home coming for him.
