Morgan O'Kane @ Grand Social

 —  —

The Loft @ Grand Social , 35 LIFFEY ST LOWER, Dublin, IE

“Morgan O’Kane is New York’s banjo-playing, tambourine-toting, hillbilly-punk journeyman” (Narrative.ly). O’Kane plays banjo like no other. Originally hailing from Virginia; He currently resides in Brooklyn when he is not on tour, where he sometimes plays in the subway and on the street. The music is “to bluegrass and old timey what punk was to rock in the late seventies” (Ian Spafford / www.stirrings.org.uk) Deeply steeped in old traditions, O’Kane treats the banjo differently than you’ve heard it before and brings a punk sensibility to his music. Joined by steel guitarist, Zeke Healy and flugelhorn player J.R. Hankins, the trio bring their distinct form of punk bluegrass back to Dublin where they last played opening for co-collaborators Lankum at Vicar St. in 2017.

Tickets 12 euro
