MusicEmerald Armada

Lough Lively Sessions

The Emerald Armada is a four headed alt Irish, folk rock beast from Belfast who early in their journey got used to hearing their lyrics sung back to them at shows. This popularity is thanks to their infectious hook laden melodies, stunning four part harmonies and high-octane live performances. The four brothers in arms find their heartbeat in an enchanting Bodhran drum and percussion set up, while an electric lead guitar soars over driving acoustics and punchy bass. Drawing inspiration from the sea, friendship and the small hours of the morning you can expect the boys to deliver a toe tapping set of songs from the heart. The Emerald Armada are Augustus Allen (vocal/guitar), Gary Lynas (drums) Dermot Moynagh (vocals/percussion) & Tony McHugh (guitar/vocals).
