Celtic Connections: Alex Rex / Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh
February 3, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm UTC+0
As part of Celtic Connections, we’re delighted to bring you Alex Rex, Alex Neilson’s solo project with support from Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh and a special DJ set from Earth Recordings’ Kyle Lonsdale!
Alex Rex is the new solo project by Alex Neilson (Trembling Bells/ Bonnie “Prince” Billy/ Alasdair Roberts etc) and is a more stripped down and folk orientated endeavour than TBs. Debut album VERMILLION has been getting rave reviews (see some of the links below), but Alex is keeping it as a studio only project and not doing any live shows.
This would be a one off event with an extended line up of pedal steel guitar/ violin/ accordion and more, including Stevie Jackson (Belle and Sebastian) and Dave McGowan (Teenage Fanclub). A never to be repeated show!
Support from Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh and a DJ set from Kyle Lonsdale (Earth Records).
