2fm’s Canadian adoptee Jenny Huston is to release a book on the current generation of Irish bands. Having spent the last thirteen years or so building up her expertise on local rock, pop and alternative music, Huston has put together a volume that looks at individual bands that are prominent on the current Irish music scene, including the likes of Bell X1, Republic of Loose, Jape, The Blizzards, Delorentos, Lisa Hannigan, Fred and loads more besides.
According to the blurb, 'This book will tell you everything you want to know about your favourite Irish Bands and to put on the record, the new Irish Headliners, the bands filling venues, receiving awards and enjoying critical acclaim right now. Their full history, their pictures, their stories, their successes to date and their plans for the future.'
'In Bloom: Irish Bands Now' is being published by Currach Press, and the cover photograph (below) was taken by entertainment.ie's own Dara Munnis.
