Quiet Nights is a monthly acoustic, low-fi, spoken word night in Dublin.
- YOU KISS BY THE BOOK
A lovely laid back sombre collection of rustic country tinged folk sounds reminscent of the likes of smog or bonnie prince billy at timesâ€¦ a lovely blend of traditional classic country folk and more modern indie folk sounds, complete with some classic slide guitar action.
One of those excitingly wide-eyed, wide-eared, discovery moments of loveliness, totally restored my faith in the music coming down the line, not that it was all that lacking to be honest: there are plenty of talented kids about, but to see a group so young and so evolved is heartening. Traz are a group of transition year students from Dublinâ€¦ heavily alt folk inspiredâ€¦ add some stunning choir style voices, a dollop of low sax and a love of the fiddle and you get a very irish take on americana alt folk.
- SONIA MARIA RAVEN (SWI)
- A very talented Dublin-based songwriter from Switzerland, sadly still floating below the radar outside of the open-mic scene. A captivating voice over classical guitar, generating a sound that moves between haunting and melancholic.
