Wallis Bird has announced a Whelan’s Show for October 24th. Tickets are priced at €19 (including booking fee) on-sale from Ticketmaster outlets and online at www.ticketmaster.ie. On-sale Friday July 6th.
The best way to sum-up an artist who combines so many different styles is with the person themselves - hence the reason for self-titling her new upcoming album. A musical magpie whose mature, self-affirming songs display an unusual emotional breathes, Wallis defies categorization. The Irish artist has paid her dues, shredding her fingers and breaking string after string from the sheer force of playing on stages small and large across Europe, and throwing her entire soul into each performance with a level of energy that makes her an unassailable force of nature.
