Shamnesiac: Tradiohead play the Cobblestone


All the great things in life start out as puns. And so it was with Tradiohead, who play the Cobblestone, Smithfield in Dublin on Friday 16th November at 9. Theirs is a show that should not be missed. Frontman, Jimi McDonnell, a man no woman can tame, is worth the admission fee alone.

No surprises? Well, not quite. Tradiohead take the songs of Radiohead and re-imagine them using instruments more often associated with Irish traditional music. Tradiohead are Jimi McDonnell on vocals, Philip Fogarty on accordion and bodhrán, Pat Hargan on guitar and Michael Chang on violin, viola and mandolin.

The unlikely meeting of Radiohead and some gems from the Irish trad catalogue now has a name: Tradiohead
Here they are playing Knives Out in Campbells Tavern
