Widely considered to be one of the finest songsmiths of his generation, Dublin-born Mark Geary will play The Black Box in Belfast as part of a five-date autumn tour in Ireland with The Strawhall House Band.
Mark Geary has just returned from sold-out tours in Italy and Switzerland. This is the first full tour that he will play with The Strawhall House Band since April 2019.
Mark Geary rose to prominence playing alongside the likes of Jeff Buckley, Sinead O’Connor and Katell Keineg at the famous Sin é bar in New York. Over the last 20 years Mark has toured all over Europe, the US and Australia, and has shared the stage with performers such as The Swell Season, Glen Hansard, The Frames, Josh Ritter, Bell X1, Coldplay, Elvis Costello, The Pretenders and Joe Strummer.
The Strawhall House Band features Fiacre Gaffney, Jack Maher, Vinny Kilcullen and Mark Penny. The band formed from the long running Monday night session at the iconic Strawberry Hall Pub on the Strawberry Beds Road in Dublin. Alongside original songs from their debut album Six Days in May, released in May 2017 on Plateau Records, the band’s repertoire includes covers by great songwriters such as Lowell George, Ry Cooder, John Hiatt and Guy Clarke.
It’s this infusion of Americana on the new version of Rosebud that adds a distinctive layer which compliments Mark’s already unique style.
