Dean Maywood EP Launch
Category - Music Date - 17/05/2019 8:00 pm
Kate O Callaghan, Michael Gillespie
& Special Guest Brendan Quinn
Balor regulars will know Dean Maywood well. He’s the host of our monthly Ghostlight Sessions original live music night and has supported the likes of Goats Don’t Shave, The Mulligan Brothers and The 4 Of Us here over the years. The Raphoe man returns – this time in his own headline slot – launching his eponymously titled debut EP.
Musically Dean draws on a spring of vintage ‘70’s golden era rock, pop and country, distilling it to beautiful melody and lyrics with heart informed and inspired by endless miles and hours working the Irish music circuit. The lead single Jane – released in January – has received extensive coverage including plays on RTE and BBC.
For this launch Dean has put together The Dog River Band – a crack band of musical peers and legends – including Strabane singer songwriter Darren Doherty on guitars, Zara Montgomery on keys, Cormac Friel on drums and Darren Carr on bass. They’re joined by legendary Goats Don’t Shave guitarist Patsy Gallagher and a special guest appearance by the one and only Brendan Quinn.
Ghostlight regulars will also recognise the two support acts on the night – the Inishowen duo of Kate O Callaghan and Seamus Devenney and songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Michael Gillespie.
