Two of Ireland’s finest folk acts join forces for this mouthwatering double bill. Led by Patrick O’Laoghaire, I Have A Tribe paints pictures with sound, tinged with electronica and enriched by warm, tremulous vocals that have drawn comparisons with everyone from Antony to Tom Waits. Sun Collective is a Dublin-based eight-piece that embraces everything from folk to classical, indie and jazz, creating a seamless blend of gorgeous three-part harmonies and lush string arrangements. With a sold out, double-headline tour under their belts, the bands come to Cleere’s to perform back-to-back, with members of each ensemble joining the other, in a thrilling collaboration showcasing two of Ireland’s finest acts.
