Family show in Barry’s – Press Release

The multicultural Sligo-based band that is NoCrows is delighted to announce a coming-back-to-Barry’s-in-Grange gig on Sunday 12th Feb, at 5 pm. It will be a family friendly one where under 16s accompanied by an adult will have free admission and adult tickets will be priced at €10.

This internationally acclaimed group has wowed audiences all over Europe since their humble beginnings at Shoot the Crows Wednesday night session and has performed in a number of festivals in the continent including Glastonbury in the UK, Dranouter and Labadoux in Belgium and Buskers Bern Festival in Switzerland.

With a tremendous popularity and a huge amount of fans spread all over the world, these guys have established a very interactive relationship with young audiences. Their lively repertoire certainly helps creating this connection. Guitarist Felip Carbonell explains the reason behind their next family show in Grange: “Young smiley faces in the front row or jumping around the dance floor to our tunes is one of the best memories I have of our last trip away. So we decided it was time to organize a show in Sligo available (and affordable) to families that would like to bring their children out for a bit of ‘craic’. The structure of the show will be the same as a regular gig but with special emphasis on explaining to the audience about the origin of the tunes and how the instruments work, so hopefully it will be good fun for all ages”

Musical education is an important part of NoCrows, with most of the band members teaching music in different projects as well as touring, composing and recording.

The band’s latest album NoCrows on the Moon was released on Whiling Discs record label in 2010 following the steps of the two previous ones, Magpie (2008) and Live in the Strand (2006). “Releasing a new album in 2012 would be the ideal progression (new CD every two years) but it looks unlikely. Although… we never say never.” concludes Felip.
