Little Tents were formed last summer as part of Limerick City’s Music Generation programme. In July they played for U2’s guitarist, The Edge and recorded a couple of original songs in Cauldron Studios in Dublin. Since then, they have been busy gigging, in numerous events as part of Limerick’s City of Culture, including Elemental, Culture Night and the Winter Carnival. They have also played in Dolan’s, the Belltable and Limerick College of Art and Design as part of Limerick Voices. They have supported Hermitage Green and Paddy Casey at the Village Carnival in Newmarket on Fergus and opened for Daithí Ó Drónaí in Limerick. It has been a hectic year for Cian and the other band members, writing and recording their own music and playing to numerous and varied audiences around the Mid-west. Little Tents have also taken part in many events sponsored by the Irish Youth Movement, which will culminate in their performance at the Irish Youth Music Awards in Dublin on 18th April. Please give them your support.
