Steve Wickham and The Beekeepers in Leitrim

Steve Wickham: Steve Wickham & The Beekeepers

Sat 2 March, 8:00pm

Live music with the brilliant Steve Wickham & band

He is best known as the fiddle player in The Waterboys, but Steve Wickham has also been a prominent collaborator over the course of his long career.

Beekeeper his second solo album, 13 years after Geronimo, was released in 2017 to great critical acclaim. He didn’t visit Leitrim during the tour to promote the album but we’ve remedied that now as he and his band of beekeepers will be here as Spring arrives gathering old and new friends for a well-rounded collection of songs. You can expect  snaky gypsy interludes (Two Thousand Years), sultry, sombre ballads (the Camille O’Sullivan-featuring Silence of a Sunday) and Steve’s exceptional skill on the fiddle (The Hare, The Cells of the Heart which Nature Built for Joy). Appearing with Steve as the Beekeepers is Ray Coen (from band No Crows), Glenn Garrett, who regularly appears and records with Perry Blake and Steve Kohlmann, a talented drummer based in Sligo.  It will be a superb gig so get out there and create a buzz!
