This Is How We Fly (Grand Social) & other IMC Gigs in May

This is how we fly

We are greeted this sunny morning by the news that ‘This is how we fly’ are back on stage in Dublin. All the members of TIHWF perform in a variety of other roles and bands, so it’s a rare opportunity to see them on stage, and one you should not miss! They play the Grand Social on May 8th.

Their first album ended up on our ‘Best albums of 2013‘, and you can check out our review of their last performance here.

We’ve also included some of the other events from IMC below, to see if any tickle your fancy. They have the Tony Malaby Trio (Wed 14th May) and Ricardo Herz Trio (8pm, Wed 21st May). Both bands play the Bello Bar (beneath the Lower Deck) Portobello Harbour, Dublin 2.

“This Is How We Fly is a contemporary folk band drawing on Irish, Swedish and American music and dance traditions. They approach their material flexibly as improvisers creating exhilarating live performances, combining percussive dance, electronics and deeply expressive music.
