Another week, another sterling Irish album to celebrate the appearance of. This week it’s the long-awaited return of Mumblin’ Deaf Ronan Hession. The follow up to his well-loved The Herring & The Brine, Dictionary Crimes is a careful and insightful musing on the meaning of family and belonging. The gentle instrumentation provides a subtly uplifting space for Ronan’s lyrics to work their magic within. A considered and assured take on folk and the art of the singer-songwriter.
Dictionary Crimes is released by Popical Island and gets a proper christening this Friday in Whelan’s.
Where: Whelan’s (Downstairs)
When: Friday, 8pm
The Damage: €10 (with a copy of the album)
