Brighten The Corners Presents alt-folk singer-songwriter Junior Brother at The Smokehouse on Saturday 10th February 2024.
“These well-formed songs are substantially intelligent and encapsulate the broad range of feelings we face when learning our place in an increasingly shaky world built on a foundation of tragedy. The Great Irish Famine is a nourishing listen, at times challenging, at others unabashedly pretty.” - Pop Matters
Junior Brother is an experimental alternative folk singer/ songwriter from Co. Kerry, Ireland, playing sometimes humorous, sometimes heady tunes. Strange stories, poetic and arcane, unfold with reckless abandon upon an idiosyncratic Guitar and Foot Tambourine accompaniment, taking musical influence from his upbringing in rural Ireland.
Chosen as one of RTÉ’s Rising Irish Stars of 2018, Junior Brother has been steadily building a fanbase in his current base of Dublin, and around the country, winning followers with his unique and powerful live shows.
