LA-based Chelsey Wolfe straddles several music forms, and if you’re into descriptive pitches such as “Joni Mitchell jamming with classic-era Black Sabbath”, then her singular style of artful if somewhat distorted drone-goth-folk will be right up your glass-strewn
garden path.

Based on the true story of Patrick O’Brien, a Limerick teenager and ship’s apprentice who was killed and eaten by his ship-wrecked crewmates in 1835, Mike Finn and David Blake’s show for Gúna Nua might make for an unlikely musical – if there was ever such a thing as a likely musical. With an initially bouyant tone that becomes ever more maudlin, the show is guided by respect rather than grisly humour, slowing into a lament. The production and multi-roleplaying performances are shipshape, and the music often lovely. But would it lose the injustice to have more wicked fun with it?
