TOC Presents I Draw Slow
Sunday March 17, 2019
Doors at 7pm | Show at 8pm
All Ages | Bar with ID

Dublin, Irelands I Draw Slow has already won the adoration of fans in their home country and North America by combining American folk and Irish storytelling traditions with close-harmony vocals, intriguing instrumentation and compelling subject matter. And on their debut with Compass Records, Turn Your Face to the Sun, released April 21, 2017, the band adds even more depth to their sound and songwriting.

This time out, sibling vocalists Dave and Louise Holden, with Dave on acoustic guitar, Adrian Hart on violin, Colin Derham on clawhammer banjo and Konrad Liddy on double bass, chose to color their blend of vocals and strings with brass and percussion. They also chose to address a theme of loss, through lyrics that examine both the darker side of human nature and the goodness of redemption.

The band first drew attention beyond Irelands shores with their 2011 release, Redhills. Fueled by a prominent Spotify playlist placement and a video suggesting both 1890s bordello and 1920s speakeasy, the song Goldmine became the albums breakout track. Their follow-up album, 2014s White Wave Chapel, reached No. 2 on Irelands iTunes chart, driven in part by the video for Valentine, which featured Game of Thrones star Aidan Gillen.

In the meantime, they established themselves as festival standouts, appearing at MerleFest, Pickathon, Wintergrass, RockyGrass, Grey Fox, Red Wing, Edmonton Folk Fest and High Sierra Music Festival to name a few. Theyve also appeared on many radio shows, including the syndicated Mountain Stage.

Their energetic live performances and inventive combination of Appalachian and Irish roots music has drawn so much support, they were able to completely crowd-fund the recording of Turn Your Face to the Sun  which they tracked over one weekend, camping out in a house in County Wicklow, Ireland, with engineer Brian Masterson (U2, Van Morrison). It captures I Draw Slow at their best  when theyre all together, separated only by air.

Speaking of air, first-time I Draw Slow listeners ought to be warned: This band very well might take their breath away. And they wont even mind.
