The international band The Loafing Heroes are a cosmopolitan blend of folk, poetry, world music and pop, a tapestry of lush harmonies and contemplative lyrics. They have just released their fifth and most complete record called The Baron in the Trees which draws upon influences as eclectic as the members themselves, with haunting ballads giving way to smoky jazz numbers and then to dreamy folk song—tales of loss and rediscovery, of isolation and transformation. Their previous albums (Crossing the Threshold, Planets, Chula and Unterwegs) are a product of their years in Lisbon and Berlin.

Tickets €12 / €10 concession. Bookings on 066 9478956. 

Review of the new album:
“An album from 2016 but that, proudly, could be from 1968 or 1983, without following any fashions or trends … It is a very beautiful record, without being afraid of being beautiful. An alburing.” – Revista Altamont, June 2016
