About

Rhythm Section presents Ireland’s The Eskies as they bring their unique brand of folk noir/gypsy jazz/sea shanty and swaggering stage spectacle to Australia in 2018.
The band have been rousing ballrooms and booze houses far and wide, sullying soirees and lowering inhibitions of get-togethers and social occasions wherever they have ventured.

Purveyors of music that meanders from sea soaked waltz to Italian tarantella, from Brassy funeral march-esque lament to weep along Klezmar knees up, from chain gang holler to rag time finger snap. Skipping through the dark side of anything that makes you want to dance, steeped in melodrama and usually with not a small amount of tongue in cheek.

Their debut album 'After The Sherry Went Round' is in shops now and is also available for
download from iTunes.


"Like a wagon storming the citadel, The Eskies' brand of gothic-tinged gypsy-folk swaggers out
of the speakers with intent." - Hot Press Magazine

"From the sinister sway of ‘Eloise’ through to the jaunty ‘Jesus Don’t Save Me’ and the driving
‘Jailhouse Sun’, The Eskies have delivered a fascinating blend of fun-fuelled folk." - The
Independent

"The album is a raucous fanfare of folk, swamp blues and unquenchable merriment, paired with
brain-burrowing melodies and witty lyrics, delivered at breakneck speed." – Goldenplec

"Indeed, the album exudes a vim and vigor that bursts from out of the speakers...makes for an
incredibly entertaining experience." - The Last Mixed Tape

'‘The Eskies are a band that we seem to keep finding ourselves turning to for The Salty Dog
Stage at Electric Picnic. They have the ability to take an indifferent half-listener and turn him or
her into a frenzied, hopelessly unselfconscious dervish inside of a short set. They perform
intelligent, beautifully crafted foot-stompers with cackling humour and delicious musicianship.
They emerge from the fog of dry ice and the fallen masts and sails of the shipwreck looking for
all the world like the crew that clung the boat in the storm, and the music they deliver feels like
it was written for that particular stage, on that night, for that audience. Few bands achieve that
in a lifetime.'’ - Hugo Jellett - Festival Organiser - Salty Dog Stage - Electric Picnic

“Easily Ireland’s best 5-piece gentlemen’s club who play gypsy-folk-noir with occasional brass
and wind sections. Yes, they are that good. Go see them and become an instant fan.” - Joe.ie -
August 2014

''Think Gogol Bordello if they'd stumbled, naked and raving, out of the Dublin mountains rather
than Eastern Europe.'' - Craig Fitzpatrick - Hot Press - July 2014

"Assured, swaggering and fearless" "Relentlessly Energetic" "Like a jet-powered gypsy wagon"
- Colm O'Reagan, Hot Press
