Famed for their energetic live performances, Hermitage Green have been touring relentlessly since their formation in 2010. The five-piece started out as a spontaneous jam session between friends and soon developed in to a strong acoustic outfit with an original sound for which the band have credited their contrasting musical tastes.
Hitting the live circuit, they quickly won over legions of fans and selling out shows in Ireland, the UK, France, the Middle East, South Africa, the US and Australia, racking up in excess of five hundred live shows. Their sold-out extensive Australian tour featured many highlights, including playing Sydney Harbour on Australia Day. Incendiary live performances and a curious arrangement of instruments help give Hermitage Green their distinctive live sound and lead to the recent release of their debut, chart-topping album ‘Live At Whelans’ which captures the beloved raw power of the band on stage.
Seeing Hermitage Green live, you can expect hard-hitting rhythm sections driven by the tribal combination of bodhrán and djembe, rhythmic guitar lines with dobro meolodies and soaring four-part vocal harmonies.
