The Colonials Smithwick's Sessions TradFest 2020

The Colonials

Date: Jan 23, Jan 24, Jan 25, Jan 26

Veterans of the Irish music scene The Colonials have rolled out their high-energy performances to huge crowds all over Europe and the Middle East for the past 30 years. Following their appearances in big-budget movies such as “Leap Year” starring Amy Adams and Brendan O’Carroll’s “Agnes Browne” the band developed a worldwide audience. Fiddle player and songwriter Ger Doyle’s song “I Can’t Dance” achieved chart success in Europe resulting in numerous TV appearances and was later recorded by Stockton’s Wing. Singer/guitarist Patrick O’Gorman previously toured with Dick Farrelly and Paul Moore, members of the Van Morrison band. Banjo player Anthony “Titch” Warde was awarded a gold disc for “Dancing At The Crossroads” which was a number 1 hit in Ireland in 1996. Don’t miss this chance to witness The Colonials in a rare Dublin appearance!
