The first Purple Sessions of the year took place last Thursday night and it was a trial run for the official re-launch of The Purple Sessions in Boyles which takes place on Feb 23rd. More details below.
Thursday night was a great night of music featuring Slane's own Meridas, Drogheda's Sarah Something and one of my favourite band The Making from Co. Monaghan.
The headline set from The Making proved to me what a great band they are. Brendan McGahey's amazing vocals and songwriting were matched by the quality of the band with the intensity being appreciated by the Boyles crowd. Standout song was 'Summer's Gone' from The Making's debut album 'Expectations':
Sarah Something kicked the night off with a couple of covers and well written original tracks. Local act Meridas proved to me that there is a fine album in the the making from songwriter Alan Louth. Here's a video from Meridas at a previous Purple Sessions;
