The last time I saw Peter Broderick in Dublin was in Whelans a few years back. I went without much idea of what to expect and was pretty much blow away by it all. He played solo on the night and breezed between a variety of instruments and toys to make some wonderful sounds in a relaxed and fun manner.

I’ve been waiting for him to come back to Dublin for some time now, so this is going to be something of a treat! One to mark for your calenders. Tickets are €18

Peter Broderick + Loch Lomond

The Workman’s Club, Dublin

20th October 2014.

Peter Broderick’s name has become synonymous with the thriving independent music scene over the past decade, having released ground-breaking albums on prestigious record labels such as Erased Tapes, Bella Union and Type Records. This Autumn marks the release of Broderick’s highly-anticipated ‘(Colours Of The Night) Satellite’ E.P. on Bella Union. 2014 has already been a busy year for the ever-prolific musician, releasing the collaborative project with British composer Greg Haines under the guise of Greg Gives Peter Space (where the duo share their fascination with dub music), and collaborating on the latest full-length from The Album Leaf (‘Never Held A Baby’).

Peter Broderick (b. 1987) is an American-born multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter. In his later teenage years he became entwined in the Portland, Oregon indie folk scene, recording for the likes of M. Ward, Laura Gibson, Horse Feathers and Dolorean. 2007 saw him moving across the ocean to Denmark, where he began a long collaboration with the Danish band Efterklang, touring around the world with them for the next five years (and prominently featured on the recordings ‘Performing Parades’ (2009), ‘Magic Chairs’ (2010) and ‘Piramida’ (2012).

Meanwhile he recorded several albums of solo material, ranging from sparse classical compositions (‘Float’) to homemade folk music (‘Home’), constantly experimenting with different musical genres (2012’s ‘These Walls Of Mine’ fuses country, folk, neo-classical, ambient and hip-hop), and also being commissioned to write music for several films and contemporary dance works (‘Music For Falling From Trees’, ‘Music For Contemporary Dance’). He then lived in Berlin for several years where he met and collaborated with Nils Frahm, Dustin O’Halloran, Machinefabriek, Lubomyr Melnyk and several others.
