Wallis Bird has been enrapturing audiences for over a decade, playing over 800 shows in that time. She has won multiple international awards including two Irish Meteor Awards, and has also received a nomination for the Irish Choice Music Prize in 2017. Her irrepressible energy on stage is one of her trademarks; even the Irish Times once noted it could ‘kickstart an entire economy’.
Tuath Tour 2020: Following the success of her New Moon Tour across Europe and the US late last year, Wallis has announced her Tuath Tour in Spring 2020. This will see Wallis performing across a number of Ireland's smaller (better) venues, these shows will be extremely intimate and more energetic than ever! The name Tuath Tour comes from the old Irish word Túath roughly translated as people or countryside. In medieval Ireland, a Túath was a small town, separate from bigger cities and Kingdoms. Inspired by this, we wanted to focus on smaller venues, away from major towns or cities, much like the Tuath!
Irish Quotes: “The Wexford artist triumphs with socially conscious sixth album” - Hot Press
"On November 16th 2019, I did the last concert of my year outside Ireland. It was in the beautiful theatre in Antwerp that is De Roma. The crew I was working with, recorded the show without telling me.
It was a really magical night. And my favourite live music photographer, Lieve Boussauw was there.
She captured some great images of the room.
The next morning I woke up and realised, Oh my God, I have a live record here.
This live record is a picture of a 2 hour ‘moment’ in a beautiful place with great people. The gig was 2.5 hours. The record is about 55 minutes; a snapshot of the night.
On March 19th 2020, Luka Bloom Live in De Roma will have it’s first launch into the world in Kenny’s in Lahinch". LUKA BLOOM

The proceeds went to Ennistymon Community Hospital. The Woodmount Sessions is the new offering from Enda and once again is mostly original and was recorded throughout 2019 with local musicians Quentin Cooper, Adam Shapiro, James Barry, Mark Burke and Endas sister Mary McGlennon. The new songs deal with some major topics like the Australian drought, the Irish Famine, World War 1 and once again the beauty of our own local area.
