Seamus Fogarty UK Tour August 17th- 24th, 2021

I’m extremely excited to announce that I’m going on tour this August.  Old tunes, new tunes with the odd yarn thrown in for good measure and as much sonic mayhem as I can muster, imagine the splendor of Elvis’ comeback show in Las Vegas relocated to Exeter, Guildford etc and you’ll start to get an idea of what to expect…ticket info here

It’s happening, a real show (2 shows actually – an early show at 18:00/later show at 20:00) in one of my very favourite venues in London!!!  See below for ticket details

LIVE: SEAMUS FOGARTY (socially distanced) - Oslo


…and here is a short blurb I wrote about it:

‘When I chatted with Domino about scheduling this album for release last November, we knew there was a chance that the launch wouldn’t be the usual red carpet affair.  But, ever the optimist, I went ahead and released it anyways.  6 months later and the red carpet is finally being rolled out for a launch of sorts in London’s Oslo on June 11th

Buried beneath the noise and the religious poetry and the stage invaders there’s an album of songs that are as personal as any I’ve written and I’m really, really excited to find out how it all translates into a full live show…all in front of a real audience!  There’s even talk of rehearsals happening, joy. Join us on June 11th’

Seamus Fogarty May 2021


Its called A BAG OF EYES and its my second for Domino Records, its coming out NOVEMBER 6th and I’m very proud of it.  Pre-order it on limited edition violet coloured vinyl from Domino Mart: smarturl.it/ABagOfEyesLP.  Look how nice it is!!! 

The album was recorded over two years and features Emma Smith, Meilyr Jones, Leo Abrahams, Aram Zarikian & John Fogarty amongst others.  I’ve got lots more to say about it but for now check out our vid below to hear the first single Johnny K.


I’m busy trying to finish a new album but still some time to make my annual post.  In the meantime, here’s a remix I did for my pal Arborist, just to keep you going…more news soon.

Barbican Show in March, what happened to January?

Yes, the headline is true….Barbican in March with Crash Ensemble, Lisa Hannigan,  Paul Noonan and more amazing Irish songwriters and performers as part of Imagining Ireland (full details here).  You should come – the first part of this show has already happened in The National Concert Hall and was an absolute blast….here’s the proof

And big thanks to the brilliant This Is The Kit  for bringing us along for a chunk of their UK tour in January…those guys.  And to everyone that came up and chatted, bought T-shirts (which are now sold out, except for XLAAAARGE).  Here’s what you would have seen in Cambridge if you were on mushrooms

And here’s the band getting chauffeured around Groningen at Eurosonic Festival in Holland  – thanks band and to First Music Contact and Culture Ireland for their support.  

And that was January…thanks all for continued support into 2018, lots of festivals coming in….see listings for more details  

Christmas Market, Guardian Top 100 Songs of 2017

Due to overwhelming demand I’ve opened a web-shop where you can buy my luxurious Carlow Town Tshirt – while stocks last….naturally.  Here you go….http://seamusfogarty.com/shop/  

And here’s what you can own….

And while I’m at it, thanks to The Guardian for including my song ‘Van Gogh’s Ear‘ in their Top 100 Songs of 2017

Stream the lot here, available on Applemusic too 


The album is out, reviews are in, and we’re on tour

Its November and nearly 4 months since last post…slack.  We’ve launched the album, toured Ireland with the magnificent Arborist and are set to embark on a 6 date UK tour with another magnificent artist by the name of Alabaster DePlume  

And the album got a 5* review in the Guardian, alongside great reviews in Mojo, Q, Uncut, Irish Times and Hotpress…amongst others…its not all about the reviews but it’s particularly satisfying when you get get a full house.  And it might persuade you to come to a show, for those of you teetering on the brink (see ‘shows’ page)

And a rather brilliant photo of the album launch in The Old Queens Head last month,  courtesy of Brian Whar

Thank you all for supporting!
