Greenshine in the BAG

It's been a long time coming, but I'm delighted to finally welcome Greenshine to BAG on Monday 24 October, writes Roy Thompson of the Ballymore Acoustic Gigs.

Greenshine is a family band made up of guitarist/singer Mary Greene, her multi-instrumentalist husband, Noel Shine, and their daughter Ellie, who is blessed with a beautiful voice.

Their material straddles the boundaries of contemporary, folk and roots and includes many self-penned songs. Their fast picking and close harmonies are a treat to the ear.
Their current album — 'The Girl In The Lavender Dress' — was released in the summer, and the spell-binding title track has been receiving much airplay.

Doors open at 8:30pm. Admission is €12
