This edition covers a two-week period from May 22 to June 4, 2016. In A Week is our look back at Hozier highlights and happenings from the previous week.
Hozier was named one of 50 millennials shaping the future of modern Ireland. Also making the list were his friends Wyvern Lingo and actress Saoirse Ronan, who appeared in Hozier’s video for Cherry Wine.

Rory Doyle joined Our Cousin Paula in Paris on June 4 as the support act for The Corrs.
Last week, Hozier was the surprise guest on the Stoneface Films Podcast. Check out our coverage of both podcasts and his previous appearances.
While Hozier has been sharing the simple facets of summer, he made sure we knew he still lives life on the edge, breaking the rules.
Alana has had a busy two weeks filled with wine, sea, and weddings, but she managed to squeeze in some time for work scouting out locations for a potential new video. Also, fat cats are the best and the cup song is harder than it looks.
Lorraine continues to leave hints for fans about her upcoming projects.

It’s the dog days of summer! Mia shared her adorable encounters with canine companions at the beach and in studio. For Throwback Thursday, she shared new photos from the Hozier concert at Red Rocks on August 2, 2015.
Little Green Cars
The band wrapped up their European Tour last week. Little Green Cars played gigs in Hamburg, Berlin and Cologne, Germany; Paris, France; Manchester, UK; and the Dot to Dot Festival. While in the US in April, Little Green Cars recorded two songs with WFUV that were just published.
Stevie Appleby wasted no time getting back to work on his other artistic endeavors.
The band has a new booking agency, Art and Industry, for live dates in the UK, Europe, Asia and Austrailia. Wyvern Lingo was added to the White Denim gig at Whelans on August 16. Last week Wyvern Lingo made a surprise appearance providing background vocals for Saint Sister at the Unitarian Church. They have also been enjoying the sunshine.

Saint Sister has had a very busy two weeks. Watch their 360/Virtual Reality session with Radio Reverb, listen to their appearance on Pat Kenny Newstalk, and conversation with Electic Picnic. Saint Sister played their headline concert at Unitarian Church in Dublin on May 27th to a sold out crowd. They received excellent reviews of the concert as well as their gigs at The Great Escape. Friday, June 3, Saint Sister played Vantastival where Morgan discovered the downside to sunshine, followed by an evening gig at K-Fest on Saturday, June 4. Saint Sister will be supporting Soak in Derry on July 8th.
With half of Dublin at Croke Park to see Bruce Springsteen, Saint Sister treated their audience at the Unitarian Church to a lovely cover of Dancing in the Dark.

Just when you think neither Wyvern Lingo nor Saint Sister could sound better, they joined together with truly magical results.
We're genuinely blown away by last nights crowd. All our love to beautiful @rosiecarney for supporting us. We had three special guest backing vocalists join us on stage, none other than the absolute legends @wyvernlingo ! Thank you all so much, it was a really special gig. Here's a wee peek at the Saint Lingo warm-up in the back of the church. X
This week Zaska plays Down With Jazz Festival. Street Ceol TV published a new video session with Zaska. On Friday, Zaska played their last gig at Sweeney’s Bar. A mainstay in the Dublin music scene, Sweeney’s will be sorely missed.
End of an era…..
Come help us say our farewells to @SweeneyBar tonight,
