OLD SEA LEGS + guests

8pm. Sat 3rd October – Bedford Esquires

Building a tasty following at our own Bedford Esquires the THE ESKIES were due another to visit in 2019 when they unexpectedly split up. Having been packing out Room 2 the band were due to be upgraded to the main room testament to their brilliant live performances.
 
Roll forward 12 months and we can reveal singer Ian is back with a brand new moniker OLD SEA LEGS and we can’t wait to welcome him back!

Crawling with vivid imagery and colourful characters, a timeless tangle of tongue-twisting, brainburrowing lyrics that can swing from a breathless barrage to a lilting lament – at times without a moment’s notice – ’Old Sea Legs’ is more than just a nom de guerre for Dublin songwriter and performer Ian Bermingham; it is a window into a world entirely of his own creation.

Best known for his time as frontman of Dublin quintet ‘The Eskies’, Bermingham has wasted no time in stepping into new, uncharted waters as a solo performer since the group’s sad demise in the latter half of 2019.

Displaying all of the storytelling nous and craft of the quintessential folk troubadour, the melodic ear of a pop pioneer and the lyrical largesse that has become so synonymous with Ian’s song writing, ‘Old Sea Legs’ see’s the Dubliner push himself to new and exciting territories.
