Dublin quintet, Little Green Cars have just been announced to headline Folkfest Killarney on July 8th.
Little Green Cars were still in their teens when they were spotted and signed to Glassnote and recorded their widely-acclaimed 2013 debut Absolute Zero with producer Markus Dravs. That album changed their lives, taking the five former school friends on tour everywhere from Europe and Australia to Russia and the States, which they criss-crossed six times in three years. The US portion of the 2013 tour included a live performance of their single Harper Lee on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
Now all in their early 20s, Little Green Cars are both a different band and the same five friends who met every Sunday aged 15 in singer Stevie Appleby’s garden shed to start writing songs. Those changes, their shared experiences and individual ups and downs are candidly documented in Ephemera which was released in March 2016, a gorgeous, grown-up album about, well, growing up.
As with any 5 piece band their style is made up of varying musical tastes – with a blend of folk and an alternative style which is similar to Mumford and Sons.
Other acts to confirmed for the 2016 Folkfest Killarney include Christy Moore, The Waterboys, Damien Dempsey, Colm Mac Con Iomaire, Iarla O’Lionaird, We Banjo 3, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Mike McGoldrick Big Band & more to be announced
