Clive Carroll & Shane Hennessy
Two extraordinary guitar talents. Guitar phenomenon Clive Carroll’s masterful compositions, coupled with his versatility and unparalleled technical virtuosity, have rendered him one of today’s most admired and respected guitarists. Shane’s style encompasses virtually every genre of music, tied together with unique energetic fingerpicking and flatpicking styles from jazz and classical pieces to blues and bluegrass, with Irish traditional, jazz manouche and world influences thrown in the mix, as well as periodic bursts of energetic improvisation, and arrangements of well-known songs.

Brona McVittie
Aside from her fledgling solo career, Brona has built up widespread international acclaim for her work with Irish all-female folk legends The London Lasses, acapella ensemble Rún and post-folk trio Littlebow. Decorated with an array of four star reviews folk chanteuse and harpist Brona McVittie is quietly steering traditional folk into the 21st century with her recently launched debut solo album We Are the Wildlife — a deep reflection on the interconnectedness of things natural and manmade, an album of duality and dichotomy shaped as much by natural sonic patterning as by human patterns of behaviour — inspired by rural and urban scapes alike.

Winter Wilson
Showcasing their latest album "Far Off on the Horizon", the follow up to the critically-acclaimed “Ashes & Dust”, Winter Wilson come to DC Music Club off the back of a triumphant UK tour with the legendary Fairport Convention. Now in their 6th year as full-time musicians, Kip Winter and Dave Wilson bring a sense of intimacy to every venue, blending superb, often hard-hitting original songs, stunning harmonies and musicianship with sometimes hilarious tales of life on the road. “This isn’t an act; it’s a domestic.” Kip (vocals, accordion, guitar, flute) "simply has a voice to die for” (John Roffey, Maverick Magazine), whilst Dave (vocals, guitar and banjo) is now rightly recognised as being amongst the top tier of British songwriters, with his songs covered by some of folk's "greats".

Buddy Mondlock & Mike Lindauer.
Buddy Mondlock writes songs. He does it so well that some great songwriters have recorded his songs on their own albums. Guy Clark, Nanci Griffith and Janis Ian, to name just a few. But there's nothing like hearing the guy who wrote em sing 'em. He's not going to pin your ears back with those songs. He's going to draw you into his world where a single snowflake follows the trajectory of a relationship, where you get your pocket picked by a Roman cat, where you might swim over the edge of the world if you're not careful and where dreams that don't come true still count. Top notch.

Greenshine have been building a solid base of followers in Dublin having played several great concerts over recent years in the DC Club. When family voices combine it's sometimes hard to figure out who's singing what and that's what makes it so intriguing ~ the interplay of voices. You hear it in the singing of The McGarrigles, The Kings of Leon, The Everly Brothers etc. Combine that with great instrumentation and the concert is complete.
