THE PROCLAIMERS

It has been 32 years since Scottish twins Craig & Charlie Reid aka The Proclaimers emerged. Since then, their enduring appeal across generations has carved a niche for themselves where pop, folk, new wave and punk collide as the emotional honesty, political fire, wit and sing-along raucousness of their songs and their extensive touring has enlightened and entertained fans throughout the World.

They have even inspired a musical, the play and film ‘Sunshine on Leith’. The musical had its fourth UK run from April to June last year, with its biggest production to date by West Yorkshire Playhouse. 2018 also marked the 30th anniversary since the release of the Sunshine On Leith album and in August saw The Proclaimers add to their magnificent songbook with the release of their 11th studio album ‘Angry Cyclist’.

Following their sell out tour across the UK last year, The Proclaimers will be back on the road this year with appearances in Reykjavik and Singapore, before touring New Zealand and Australia, followed by several festivals throughout this summer.

Junior Brother, an experimental alternative folk singer/ songwriter from Co. Kerry, Ireland, playing sometimes humorous, sometimes heady tunes and chosen as one of RTÉ's Rising Irish Stars of 2018, will be supporting The Proclaimers this August! 

 

Junior Brother has been steadily building a fanbase in his current base of Dublin, and around the country, winning followers with his unique and powerful live shows. He has played the annual Whelan’s Ones to Watch festival the last two years, turning heads also in the Spirit Store (Dundalk), The Islington (London), The Duncairn (Belfast), Dolan's (Limerick), among many other venues country-wide. He has played support for a variety of like-minded acts such as the Hot House Flowers, The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock, Seamus Fogarty, Paddy Hanna and David Keenan.

JB has taken his striking live performance style to stations such as 98fm and Radio Nova, and has seen his songs aired on such national broadcasters as 2fm and Lyric FM, also being featured on Myles O'Reilly and Donal Dineen's groundbreaking music series This Ain't No Disco. He is currently recording his debut album, to be released early 2019.
