Hermitage Green to Perform Intimate Concert in Cambridge

One of Ireland’s most popular bands, Hermitage Green, will be performing on Monday, August 19th at a private residence in Cambridge, IL. One glance at their tour schedule, where all other stops are in major metro areas, and you will realize how rare the opportunity to see this group in such an intimate environment really is.

 

Hailing from Limerick, Ireland, Hermitage Green have made a large impact in a short period of time. After having released their first full length album via SONY Ireland and watching it climb the charts with tracks like Quicksand, Not Your Lover, and Save Your Soul, the band has been touring internationally to sold out rooms across Ireland, the UK, Middle East, Australia, and the US.

 

Now the band is back after having spent months in world renowned Rockfield Studios in Wales where their new recordings share company with the likes of Queen, Robert Plant and many others. 
 

With Grammy winning producer Matt Lawrence (Adele, Amy Winehouse, Mumford & Sons) at the helm of this record, the band has created an EP entitled Gold & Rust consisting of 6 progressive sonic masterpieces. 2018 will see the band continuing to tour the globe.

 

“Gold & Rust - the title was inspired by a lyric that Darragh Griffin wrote in the song 'Bring It On Down'. I suppose as an album title it represents the many contrasts of being in a band in 2017. The ups and downs, highs and lows, whatever you want to call it... From playing the mainstage at Electric Picnic, to getting laughed out the door of a bank when looking for a mortgage. From walking out of a sold out Olympia Theatre in Dublin, to playing to 7 people in a town somewhere in the U.S. From telling your bandmates you love them and would do anything for them, to trying to kill your bandmates because they piss you off sometimes. 'Gold & Rust' is the dichotomy between the struggle and the absolute privilege of doing what you love for a living.” - Dan Murphy of Hermitage Green

 

The show will begin with a potluck dinner at 6PM, with music starting at 7PM. A $20 donation is suggested. Tickets are available via Eventbrite.com. In the event of rain, the concert will be moved to the Bishop Hill Creative Commons, located at 309 N. Bishop Hill St, Bishop Hill, IL.
