Rory & the Island announces one off Dublin show

Rory and the Island has just announced a one off live show in the Workman’s Club in Dublin.

The Donegal singer-songwriter hasn’t played in Ireland since 2012. Otherwise known as one third of the Revs, singer and songwriter of the Donegal anthem ‘Jimmy’s Winning Matches’ and resident musician and co-owner of the Island Bar in Lanzarote, Rory brings his fantastic live show to the Workman’s Club on April 25th 2014.

Tickets are available now via Ticketmaster Ireland. Get them while you can!

To get you in the mood here’s a live favourite that hit the no. 1 spot on the iTunes chart last year

Rory & & the Island – the Ballad of Mad Dog Coll

 

 

Congratulations Rory & Cara

There’s an immense feeling of pride around Vox Pop Media towers at the minute.

We have worked with the artist Rory & the Island continuously over the past few years and we have enjoyed every minute of it.

While we will continue to work with Rory on many future projects we are very excited about something Rory and his wife Cara have been working on in Lanzarote…

This weekend the Island Bar in Puerto Del Carmen officially opened it’s doors. We would like to congratulate Rory and Cara and also wish them the best of luck with the venue.

See you all at the Island Bar for a drink in the sun very soon. Viva Lanzarote! :)

Rory & the Island feat Jimmy from Senegal goes viral!

At the end of last week Rory & the Island uploaded the video ‘Jimmy’s Winning Matches’ to YouTube. The video, a tribute to Jim McGuinness and the Donegal football team, features Jimmy Barry Murphy from Senegal who was the inspiration for the original track ‘Jimmy Selling Watches’.

The video has since gone viral with over 60,000 views in less than four days.

Surely this will be an anthem for fans as Donegal face Cork in the All Ireland semi-final at Croke Park on Sunday 26th of August.
