Announcing the release of Paul Tiernan’s new CD and Irish tour 2015.
Paul will be accompanied by his tiny orchestra of one, Marja Gaynor on fiddle, melodica and concertina.
Both Marja and Paul are well known to West Cork audiences through their work and performances with the legendary ‘Interference’ and Fergus O’Farrell.
Marja was also a founder member of the Swell Season with Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova.
Hot Press described Paul’s last CD ‘painkillers’ as ‘powerful stuff’ and ‘breathtakingly beautiful’!
Rock ‘N Folk (one of France’s major music papers) recently said “he is without doubt one of the best European singer/songwriters, a great guitarist as well, equipped with a magic voice, a perfect mixture of silk and grit. The first song, ‘Breakfast in bed’ is a gem, a dream impregnated with bittersweet nostalgia that never leaves us after hearing it.”
CD Baby have hailed Paul as “a true songsmith in the tradition of Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake and Paul Simon”
Paul Tiernan and Marja Gaynor play De Barras, Clonakilty on Thursday, April 23 rd.
