From Hot Press:
For his Irish autumn tour, Mark Geary joins forces with The Strawhall House Band. Kicking off in October, the tour will take them to Dublin, Galway, Belfast, Cork and Kilkenny.

Ahead of the tour, on Friday, October 11, Mark Geary and The Strawhall House Band will release a new version of Mark’s song ‘Rosebud, taken from his 2017 album The Fool. The single also has a b-side, ‘Mockingbird’, written by Fiacre Gaffney and performed by The Strawhall House Band.

The infusion of The Strawhall House Band’s Americana on the new version of ‘Rosebud’ adds a distinctive layer which compliments Mark’s already unique style.

The Dublin-born songsmith says about working with the band, “Playing with The Strawhall House Band is an incredible experience. The idea that I know before I even play a note that every choice they make is going to be appropriate for the song is astonishing. For me as a singer, that doesn’t just happen. But with these guys, it happened overnight.”

Strawhall House Band frontman Fiacre Gaffney adds, “There’s a wonderful thing that happens when you’re playing and you don’t have to think about what the other people should be doing. It’s total trust. You meet somebody for the first time and you know you’re on the same wavelength.”
