Brendan & Declan Murphy from The 4 of Us will be playing Barry's Public House on Fri 31st July as part of the Grange Music Festival 2009. founding members, Brendan and Declan Murphy- the 4 of Us released their first album, Songs for the Tempted, with CBS Records in 1989, from which the single "Mary" reached No. 1 on the Irish charts. Consequently, the album went double platinum in Ireland and won Best Album of the Year at the Irish Music Awards,The album Man Alive followed on Sony/Columbia Records in 1992, and was considerably less successful than its predecessor; after this the band lost momentum and disappeared from the public eye for some years. They did not separate, however, and eventually returned to recording albums, releasing Classified Personal on a private label in 1999 and Off the Record on EMI in 2000. In 2003 the single "Sunlight", which would appear on the 2004 album Heaven and Earth, began to receive heavy airplay, marking the group's first major commercial success since their first album. In November 2006 the band released their most recent album, Fingerprints.
"Sunlight" was voted fourth in a poll to find the 'best Irish single ever', conducted by the national radio station, Today FM.

Wayne O' Connor influences from Pearl jam, U2, Alison Krauss, Coldplay, Nirvana, Nine inch Nails, Johnny Cash, Bjork, REM, Bell X1, The Frames, David Gray, set Wayne up to produce his own identifiable sound to stand out from the crowd.

Yngve & the Innocent- The album, produced by Eoin Bailey, was recorded in Sligo with his band the 'Space To Be Yourself Collective'; a concept which encourages an experimental approach, whereby musicians freely contribute to the creations. This endeavour has drawn together a talented motley crew of musicians, writers, artists and singers and on 'Tell Men This' the individual sparks light up this creative cauldron.

The Rye are an extraordinary five-piece from the West Coast of Ireland. They present one of the freshest and most exciting approaches to Irish Music heard in recent times. Mike Farragher of the Irish Voice puts it thus: “The Rye play, in their words, ‘savage driven ceoil.’ They throw together modern rock melodies into a stew of expert traditional playing, turn-on-a-dime chops rarely seen outside a lower Manhattan jazz club, and an irreverence that ties the whole package together in a rowdy, exuberant bow!” A gig with The Rye is high-spirited, full-blown entertainment.
Stonefree classic rock sounds

Oddsock Revival Fresh back from touring with the renowned act Alabama 3, Oddsocks Revival are the Sligo act that have been making a strong impression on the music scene since 2003. A striking stage presence and blend of music styles has given them a solid rep as a band who will keep the good times rolling! Over the years the lads have built up a strong set of original tunes and the past two years have seen the band develop a truly original sound mixing humbucking blues and dirty funk grooves. Together with twin guitar leads and powerful four part vocal harmonies Oddsocks Revival have certainly set themselves apart from other present day bands. With an eclectic genre mix, Oddsocks revival attract a dedicated following of groove lovers of all ages and always deliver to desired expectations.
