Bird on the Wire - Leonard Cohen Song Book re-imagined by a 10-piece band ft The Whileaways and Pauline Scanlon A 10-piece collective of outstanding musicians interpreting the music of one of the greatest songwriters of our time, Bird on the Wire has already received rave reviews and will be appearing at INEC Acoustic Club. Pauline Scanlon and The Whileaways will celebrate many of Cohen's best-loved life works. They lead a masterful collective including Will Merrigan on bass, Dave Clancy on keys, Beoga's Eamon Murray on drums, together with strings and brass sections. Pauline Scanlon galvanized the Irish music scene with her stunning debut album, Red Colour Sun, over ten years ago. As a solo artist and as a member of vocal duo LUMIERE, Scanlon has entranced audiences the world over with her distinctly delicate intensity. Pauline has performed and recorded with a wide range of artists including Damien Dempsey, Sinead O'Connor, John Spillane and is a member of several high profile groups including Donal Lunny's Atlantic Arc Orchestra. Scanlon has presented several music-based Television programmes for both the BBC and TG4 in recent years and released her latest album 'Gossamer' in 2016 to critical acclaim. The Whileaways are three powerful forces in Irish roots music, Noelie McDonnell, Noriana Kennedy and Nicola Joyce combine to create a beguiling tapestry of harmonies, tradition and beautifully crafted original songs. Their sound is simply captivating, enthralling live audiences and securing their firm footing in roots music both in Ireland and internationally.
