‘HEY HO BELIEVE’ by Jimmy MacCarthy

Jimmy MacCarthy and Donal Lunny following the launch of ‘Hey Ho Believe’ will be performing at the National Concert Hall, Dublin on November 29th and the Cork Opera House on December 5th. Jimmy MacCarthy is probably the only unknown quantity and unreleased potential of his generation performing in Ireland today. Although selling out significant venues to capacity, and to great acclaim over the last two decades, needless to say it has been as a songwriter that he stands alone among his kind. With songs already standard, such as ‘No Frontiers’, ‘Ride on’, ‘The Contender’, ‘Bright Blue Rose’, ‘Katie’ , ‘Neadin’ and ‘Mystic lipstick’ to name but a few. Now over the last eighteen months following a five year sabbatical Jimmy has returned to stage, and stage craft with nothing less than a stunning rejuvenation. Jimmy will now be performing upcoming concerts, with legendary musician Donal Lunny, and on keyboard Graham Henderson.

With a new album under his belt released on October 25th last ‘Hey Ho Believe’ has eleven previously unrecorded works, produced by ace producer Donal Lunny. Musicians feature a dream wish list of Irish studio players on Bass, Eoghan O’Neill, Guitars, Anthony Drennan, Drums, Liam Bradley, Keyboards, Graham Henderson, and the musical enigma that is Donal Lunny.
