The Logues Biography:

It has been described as ‘psycho ceilidh’, ‘whiskey-soaked folk’ and just plain old ‘partying music’ – whatever it is, The Logues have made the genre their own. From their humble beginnings in a sleepy County Tyrone village, they have become one of Ireland’s most sought-after live bands.

Made up of drums, bass, acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo, tin whistle and vocals, The Logues have been bringing their folk-rock circus to audiences throughout Ireland and parts of the UK since St. Patrick’s Day 2006, when they formed for what was supposed to be a one off gig to fulfill a drunken promise. Since then they have become one of the busiest bands in the country, playing around 150 shows a year.

Signed to Ireland’s most respected live music booking agency, AMA Music Agency (The Coronas, Paddy Casey, Aslan to name a few) in late 2011, the band have performed at a number of festivals including TradFest in Dublin; headlining the Ballyshannon Folk Festival and Donegal Town Festival; Ierse Dag (Irish Day) in Hardenberg, Holland; along with supporting bands like Saw Doctors, Goats Don’t Shave, Dublin City Ramblers and performing at The Pogues official after-concert party in London.

In July 2011, The Logues released their debut album ‘Tough at the Bottom’, a collection of 11 original songs. Despite their D.I.Y ethic and lack of any media campaign, the album reached a height of #4 in the Amazon.co.uk folk download chart, almost entirely due to word of mouth and the fans they had slowly built up over the years. They are currently filming a video for the first single, and are hoping to play in as many towns and countries as is humanly possible!
