NoCrows plays Source Sligo, Jan 14th 2012

Due to a heavy Waterboys schedule this year, brilliant NoCrows fiddler Steve Wickham is taking a sabbatical from the band from March until the end of 2012. NoCrows will continue to work and tour throughout the year with Russian violin virtuoso Oleg Ponomarev on violin, but one of the last chances to see NoCrows’ five piece line up at is Source Sligo on Saturday January 14, 10.30pm, with both Steve and Oleg Ponomarev featured at the helm. Sparks invariably fly when these two gentleman grace a stage together. This special night of music will feature music from the group’s three CDs including the latest epic NoCrows on the Moon where the Waterboys connection is evident even in the title: Waterboys’ Mike Scott texted Steve during a band meeting with his fun suggestion for an album title, as well as contributing some soundscapes to this eclectic collection of tunes. 

NoCrows full line up for Source Sligo on Jan 14th, 10.30pm is Anna Houston cello, mandolin & vocal, Felip Carbonell guitar and vocal, Eddie Lee double bass, and the twin violins of Steve and Oleg. Admission, incredibly, is free, so come early and grab a good seat
