The London Ear with Trick Mist

Chats with Trick Mist and a competition to win tickets to see The Eskies in London are all on this week’s episode of The London Ear.

I was delighted to catch up with Gavin Murray, aka Trick Mist. It’s the first time since the release of his debut album, ‘Both Ends’, that we’ve had a chance to chat about his music on the radio.

I saw Gav play in Lion & Coffee Records in Hackney a few weeks ago and I have to say, he’s a wonder to see. Gav is definitely a cross between a contemporary sean nós singer and a seanachaí.

Gavin beautifully mixes folk, electronica and the sounds he recorded while travelling into the beautiful soundscape that is ‘Both Ends’.

You can find out more about Trick Mist on Bandcamp, Twitter and Facebook.

Competition // See The Eskies at The Borderline in London

The Eskies

Irish band ‘The Eskies‘ produce ‘sea-soaked gypsy folk. Live, it’s a party. It’s a rip roaring, stomp your feet, singalong at the top of your lungs kinda night. They’re coming back to London for a show at The Borderline on March 8th. Having previously seen them at that venue, I can guarantee it will be an awesome night. You can buy tickets online here.

Thanks to Jawdropper Management, I’ve got two pairs to give away. All you have to do is message the show on Twitter or Facebook and say ‘Gimme ‘Eskies’ tickets. The competition closes on Tuesday 26th February at 10pm and winners will be announced on The London Ear on March 2nd.

Good luck!
