Meet *Mongoose*- the fierce female foursome that are taking Ireland’s
alternative folk scene by storm. Their music is an amalgamation of styles,
from pop and folk to jazz and trad. With nods to Crosby, Stills, Nash and
Young, Joni Mitchell and The Andrews Sisters, Mongoose's influences range
from Simon and Garfunkel to Fleetwood Mac, with a dash of Beyoncé in
between. Each member being a songwriter allows for an ever-evolving
soundscape, from Russian polkas and delicate folk melodies to aching
ballads and playful tales of love lost. With a debut album under their belt
and festival appearances which include Other Voices, Groove,
Knockanstockan, Body & Soul, Longitude and Electric Picnic, this unique
band are sure to delight with their quick onstage banter, eclectic range of
instruments and beautifully crafted songs.
"Original, smart... the band's musical accomplishment, gorgeous harmonies
and an unquenchable joie de vivre make their performance unique."
Special Guest: *The Sensational Mr.Cormac McCann (The Piano Man)*
