Hothouse Flowers came out of tough times. They played the streets and brought the streets to the stages of the world. They continue to tour venues across the country and further afield. There is an unpredictable energy in the band that harkens back to the “Risk” days. They call upon their grand repertoire to create a show that is unique to the time and place. No two shows are the same. Improvisation can come at any point and allow the men express their brightest and their darkest influences. “Rock and Roll is not about safety or politeness, it is not about perfection either. It is expression and it is spirit.” Humour is also never far from a Hothouse Flowers night. They do not take themselves seriously, however there is no mistaking the musical integrity among them as they open up to each other in musical dialogue.

“I take pleasure in facing adversity … I don’t see perfection as something that can be created externally… It is an experience. A connection between listener and player… if you feel the music they will feel the music” says Liam ó Maonlaí.

Irish actress and singer Lisa Lambe’s debut solo album ‘Hiding Away’ an RTE Radio 1 Album of the Week. Recent live dates include Dublin’s Whelan’s Main Stage, The Sugar Club, the Mick Lally Theatre Galway, Coughlan’s Live Cork, the Set Theatre Kilkenny. Lambe’s relaxed vocal style shines through….faintly jazzy and sumptuously melodic…it is the kind late night radio friendly fare that made Norah Jones a star. – Hot Press
