Washington Irving


WEDNESDAY 14TH AUGUST 2013

Doors 7.30pm

£7.00

Over 18 Only

Since the release of their debut EP Little Wanderer, Head Thee Home in 2010, Washington Irving have been attracting an ever-growing fan base across the UK with their powerful blend of raucous folk pop, blending elements of the Arcade Fire, the Band, the Waterboys, and the Pogues. Produced by Marcus Mackay (Frightened Rabbit, Snow Patrol, Sparrow & The Workshop), the EP has received airplay from the likes of Vic Galloway and Huw Stephans on Radio 1, as well as being firmly supported by BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson. Having toured all over Scotland, the band performed at T in the Park, made its debut outside Scotland with a string of dates in Ireland as well as a sold out show at the Lexington in London with Dry the River before finishing the year off with a live session on Radio 1 with Vic Galloway.

In January 2011 the band played a sold out headline show at King Tuts Wah Wah Hut, and in April they completed their first UK tour to coincide with their new single – Abbey Gallop. The single was Produced by Ramsay Miller, formerly from The Cinematics, and mixed at Castle of Doom Studios 2 by legendary producer Tony Doogan (Belle & Sebastian, Mogwai, Broken Records, Super Furry Animals, Teenage Fanclub). Summer 2011 saw them perform at Festivals across the UK including Camp Bestival, Knoydart, Solfest, Rhythm festival, Stockton Weekender, and their highlight of the year – headlining the main stage at Insider Festival.

The band kick started 2012 with a storming performance at the 02ABC1 with Mull Historical Society as part of Celtic Connections. Currently working on their debut album, the band have had a great summer at festivals like Stag & Dagger, Brew in the Bog, Hebridean Celtic Festival, Kelburn Garden Party, Wickerman, Deer Shed and Hop Farm.


"Their melding of folk songs with sleek, modern pop proved invigorating to watch….Best of all, their material had a raucous nature that made it impossible not to leave in strident spirit." **** The Herald

"With their debut EP, Washington Irving show a storytelling impetus similar to that of their namesake; considered lyrics paint a picture at the intersection between the past and the present." **** The Skinny (EP review)

"If there was any justice in the world, Washington Irving would be spread across the playlists of RADIO 1 & BBC 6 music, like a rash!" Tom Robinson – BBC 6 Music

“Washington Irving have found a wonderful balance between tapping into that beautiful Scottish habit of being completely miserable (think Frightened Rabbit’s seminal The Midnight Organ Fight for cheer level) and fantastically upbeat” Rockfeedback
