Soooo ... now that it's only a month until our Howlin' Fringe! all-day event takes place in Penicuik Town Hall (Saturday 8th August) it's about time we started announcing the line-up! Over the next few weeks, we'll drip-feed you with details of who is playing ... and the first act we can announce is our very own Seamus Fogarty!
Yup, our Irish alt-folk/electronica and field recordings maestro returns to Scotland - accompanied with a clutch of new songs .... as his visit also marks the release of a brand new EP, entitled Ducks and Drakes. Yahoo! The four track collection is the first new material by the London-based songwriter to come out since his critically lauded debut album God Damn You Mountain was given a full release on Lost Map in February 2014 (“startlingly good” ★★★★★ – The Skinny).
The EP arrives officially on September 4, 2015 on super limited-edition 12” vinyl with self-designed screen-printed sleeves (250 copies only) and as a BandCamp / iTunes download. In addition to our Howlin' Fringe! event, Seamo will also be performing a number of Irish dates (accompanying Lisa O'Neill) and making appearances at various festivals including Cloudspotting in Lancashire, as well as the Port Eliot Festival in Cornwall. The mesmerising video for the EP's title track 'Ducks & Drakes' made by Drew Dir of Manual Cinema is available to view, by clicking the image at the top of this post ...
Tickets for Howlin' Fringe! are on sale now, priced at £15. The ticket price is about to go up to £18 ... so grab yours quick for the best deal, while you can!
