Originals Music Festival: Day Two
Wood Burning Savages
"Live, they blow your socks off! There's an incredible power to their live performances." Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6
The Wood Burning Savages are a rip-roaring four piece with a taste for vitriol and a reputation for discord. The band is made up of Paul Connolly (Vocals/Guitar), Daniel Acheson (Bass), Aaron McClelland (Drums) and Shea Tohill (Guitar). They’ve been lauded for their frenetic live show and twisted brand of pulsating riffs. Their breezy intensity has been compared to the likes of The Clash, Death From Above 1979 and Queens Of The Stone Age. Having played the BBC Introducing Tent at Glastonbury, the band have went on to be selected to play BBC Radio Ulster's 40th Anniversary Special and Whelan's Ones To Watch 2016.
'The most amazing live band I have seen all year- bar none, end of! '
- Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music
'Ferocious intelligence, primitive abandon and excoriating tendencies! In troubled times, the world needs punk rock heroes - The Wood Burning Savages are punk rock heroes!'
- Stephen McCauley, BBC Radio Ulster
‘A tirade of virtuosic musicianship that needs measurement on the Richter Scale.’
– Hot Press
‘They absolutely slay it. '
- Phil Taggart, BBC Radio 1
Rock and soul five-piece Scenery have wasted no time since forming just over a year ago. Having already warmed up audiences for neighbouring heavyweights PORTS and Making Monsters, the band are fresh off their first string of gigs across the channel, a tour which included the London venue where Bob Dylan made his inaugural UK appearance and Oasis first performed in the city.
Band members Stephen Whiteman (vocals), Ruairi Coyle (drums), David McConnell (guitar), Peter Howard (saxophone) and Chris Doherty (bass) recently recorded their debut EP Far Out live at Smalltown America Studios and had it mastered by Pete Maher, whose CV boasts work with U2, The Rolling Stones, Noel Gallagher and Jack White.
Since the breakup of Mascara Story, Ferris recorded six solo albums, and two EP's and released eight books of original poetry.
ROE is the moniker of the latest Irish songstress, Roisin Donald. Despite only being active for a short space of time, she has caught the attention of BBC Radio 6’s Tom Robinson having been selected for showcase via his ‘Fresh on the Net’ website. Following the release of her debut single ‘Ghost’ (which was selected as BBC’s ‘Track of the Day’ on Across the Line). ROE was chosen to open for hotly tipped Irish favourites PORTS at their album launch in her hometown to a sold out show as well as performances at ‘Music City’ and Stendhal Festival of Art
