Hailing from Dublin, The Eskies bring their unique brand of folk noir/gypsy jazz/sea shanty and swaggering stage spectacle to ballrooms and booze houses far and wide. The release of albums “After the Sherry Went Round” and “And Don’t Spare The Horses” on Parochial Dancehall Recordings cemented their position as an absolute must-see act on the Irish music scene.
The Eskies have headlined tours and festivals in Ireland, the UK, Europe and beyond, including festival performances at Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival, Eurosonic Noordeslag (NL) and Port Fairy Folk Festival in Australia.
