Skatz new album, ‘Play Something Irish’ is packed with his unique versions of traditional Irish songs. The launch is happening across a whole weekend in three venues in South West Kerry.
Friday 28th April is Party Night at The Smuggler’s Inn, Waterville, one of Skatz’s regular monthly gigs in the tourist season. Great food, great music, great craic. Check out Skatzsinger on Facebook for the promo video with the Smuggler’s owner and chef Henry Hunt.
Saturday 29th April is the official launch date for the album. This takes place at The Lobster in Waterville, a brilliant music pub and the site of Skatz’s Saturday Special residency from April through September.
Sunday 30th April sees Skatz returning to Cable O’Leary’s in the townland of Ballinskelligs, where he first lived when he moved to Ireland. It’s a bank holiday next day, so this could be a busy one and a fine way to round the weekend off.
During the afternoon/early evening of the Saturday and Sunday, he’ll also be playing for a wedding party in The Sealodge Hotel, Waterville. So it’s a whole solid weekend of music lined up.
