The London Ear on RTÉ 2XM Show 229 // The Lost Brothers / 90 Women Artists Exhibition

On this week’s episode of The London Ear, I caught up with Oisin Leech from The Lost Brothers ahead of their London date at the Irish Cultural Centre in Hammersmith. Also on the programme is Martina Hamilton from Hamilton Gallery in Sligo, who has curated an exhibition of ’90 Women Artists’ at 12 Star Gallery in London as part of the St Brigid’s Day celebrations.

It’s hard to believe that The Lost Brothers are celebrating ten years together. As part of a series of shows to celebrate the ‘Decade’, the lads are grabbing their guitars and coming to London for a show at the Irish Cultural Centre in Hammersmith.

It’s always lovely to chat to Oisin, who’s from Navan, me being from Kells, there’s always a bit of friendly banter!

You can find out more about The Lost Brothers at their website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You can listen to their music on Spotify and buy it on Bandcamp.

Martina Hamilton from Hamilton Gallery in Sligo was asked to curate an exhibition of work as part of the St Brigid’s Day celebrations in London. The exhibition features the works ’90 Women Artists’ at 12 Star Gallery here in London.

Martina has previously curated projects around the work of WB Yeats. Here, artists were asked to contribute to the project which centres around the poem  “St Brigid’s Day 1989” by Leland Bardwell, who died in 2016, aged 94. In her obituary, The Guardian recapped on her bohemian life.

’90 Women Artists’ runs at the 12 Star Gallery in Europe House, 32 Smith Square London, SW1P 3EU, Mon – Fri 10-6.
