Sydney, Australia, Songwriter/singer Matt Purcell plays at Whelan's Song Cycle on Mon 15th August. This is his Debut performance in Ireland and will preview new songs from his up coming Album, tentatively titled 'Dublin Liverpool'. With a New repertoire of Folk inspired Numbers, Matt plays Whelan's acoustic with Karen Treacy on Bodhran. His new soon to be released Album is a bold departure from his Debut Album (Matt Purcell & The Blessed Curse - Other Tongues) which was a power pop favorite for 2010 and features The Irish Fiddle playing of Mark Oates. Having supported Paddy Casey in Sydney earlier in the year and with The Mathew St Fringe Festival in his sites for the August long weekend, free entry to this show is a blessing and definitely not a curse.
