The London Ear #393

I’ve got three fantastic guests on The London Ear for you today. Hope you enjoy!

Interview: Tadhg Daly + Etaoin

What a talented pair! It was great to catch up finally with Tadhg Daly and Etaoin to chat about their new collaboration ‘Not Over You’. It really shows off both their talents remarkably. They are both really great singer songwriters and both seem to have elevated themselves over the past year or so.

I really enjoyed chatting about what their Irish identity means to both of them and as I said during our chat, there are as many ways to be Irish as there are Irish people.

You can find out more about Tadhg Daly on Insta and you can find Etaoin there too

Interview: Lee Rogers

Lee Rogers is a seriously talented guy. He’s just back from an American tour with Foy Vance and Gareth Dunlop and in the middle of it all, released his new album ‘Gameblood’.

I really enjoyed the chat with Lee and felt that we got to know him and his work better through our chat.

The gig in St Pancras Old Church that was due to take place this week was postponed due to rail strikes, it has been rescheduled for October 22nd. All tickets will be honoured.
