In A Fortnight: May 22 to June 4, 2016

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.

Back in December 2015, Hozier was interviewed by Diana Bunici for her book Pursuit of Awesome.  Currently, his chapter is available for free online on her website.

Band Projects

Rory Doyle joined Our Cousin Paula in Paris on June 4 as the support act for The Corrs.

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 Henderson

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.

Getting schooled at 'cup song' by this babe… Can't teach an old dog…. #cupsong #newtrick #fail #skills #wellthen

Wyvern Lingo

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

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.

Saint Lingo

Just when you think neither Wyvern Lingo nor Saint Sister could sound better, they joined together with truly magical results.


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.


BARQ launched their latest single That Thing You Love with a gig at Whelan’s on May 29.   They’ve received some fantastic press with glowing reviews , a Live Session with 102.3 FM and articles in the Irish Mirror and Hot Press. Next, they play Carlow Arts Festival.

Jarlath Henderson

Voting for Scottish Album of the Year Award shortlist begins June 13-15th.  Hearts Broken, Heads Turned was nominated to the longlist.

  1. Missed U but now I realize it is every fortnight.
    As ever brilliant!
    Love Little Green Cars- the song they play every night – beautiful!

  2. We’ll go back to publishing every week if there is enough happening. But it’s been very quiet lately, so we did a fortnightly post. Thanks for coming by. Always nice to hear from you.
