Crawling with vivid imagery and colourful characters, a timeless tangle of tongue-twisting, brain-burrowing lyrics that can swing from a breathless barrage to a lilting lament – at times without a moments notice – ’Old Sea Legs’ is more than just a nom de guerre for Dublin songwriter and performer Ian Bermingham; it is a window into a world entirely of his own creation.
Best known for his time as frontman of Dublin quintet ‘The Eskies’, Bermingham has wasted no time in stepping into new, uncharted waters as a solo performer since the group’s sad demise in the latter half of 2019.
Displaying all of the storytelling nous and craft of the quintessential folk troubadour, the melodic ear of a pop pioneer and the lyrical largesse that has become so synonymous with Ian’s songwriting, ‘Old Sea Legs’ see’s the Dubliner push himself to new and exciting territories.
Support from fishy acoustic folk punkers Nasty Fishmonger
