THE TICKET GIG OF THE WEEK

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - INSIDE -

Is Conor J O’Brien the Katie Tay­lor of the Ir­ish mu­sic scene? He knocked out all con­tenders with his de­but record, and now he’s added elec­tro grooves and a band with rock’n’roll chops to the mix. That “dif­fi­cult” sec­ond al­bum is shap­ing up su­perbly, and he had the good grace to be hum­bled by a heart­felt home­town crowd. There will be few fu­ture op­por­tu­ni­ties to see Vil­lagers on stages this small – get a ring­side seat while you still can.

Words: Lau­rence Mackin. Pho­to­graph: Ai­dan Craw­ley.
