Dónal Tupper & his band Ursidae perform a special paired back DeBarras show as Ursa Minor
A native of the musical mecca that is Clonakilty, Dónal spent a time behind the bar of De Barras watching his musical heroes (Mick Flannery , John Spillane , Declan O’ Rourke , Glen Hansard) casually pass through on a regular basis.
From starting out playing at many a fireside acoustic session , as well as a brief stint in a musical comedy duo, Dónal moved to Galway and hit the ground running on the local college music scene, meeting the musicians that he plays with to this day.
Armed with this musical knowledge and experience ; Dónal now performs as Ursidae. This is a collective that aims to combine the relaxed atmosphere of a fireside session with the uproaring madness of a full-on rock show.
