One of Howth’s most well know musicians, Paul Byrne is principally known as drummer and founder member of the internationally successful rock band ‘In Tua Nua’ and more recently as the singing-drummer with ‘The Guilty Party’. A lesser known fact was that Paul was one of the main songwriters for In Tua Nua, he did all of the harmony vocals live and on their records and sang the lead vocal on the title track of their US break through album ‘The Long Acre’.

With a career including stints in Sugar Candy Mountain, The Texas Kellys, Rocky De Valera & the Gravediggers plus Shane McGowan’s The Shane Gang, Paul has an established track record as a musician, producer and composer. Paul is also well known around Howth for the infamous Christmas Hootenannys that he has organized for the past few years.

 Now it’s time for Paul to come out of the drum shadow and release his own solo material for the first time! Having just had two successful singles “I’ve Got You” and ‘Walk a Mile’ his album ‘Cruel & Tender Ways’ is released on May 2nd .

Paul brings his six piece band to the Abbey Tavern on Thursday May 22nd. Admission €10.

Red Empire – Live in The Abbey Tavern – Friday 11 April

Red Empire

The Abbey Tavern Howth are delighted to be hosting a night of REAL LIVE MUSIC featuring two great Irish rock bands . RED EMPIRE and PRIVADO headline act is RED EMPIRE —
“Red Empire have used their different musical influences and backgrounds to make a sound that is instantly recognisable when heard.” – Cheers Magazine
Following the release of their well-received debut EP, ‘Strange Philosophy’ Red Empire have recently finished their debut album as their star continues to rise. ‘Strange Philosophy’, which was chosen as FM104’s Strawberry Pick of the Week upon its release, went down very well with fans and critics alike. noted that:
“Despite this being their first release the standard of song is incredibly high” and The Irish Independent called it a “red-hot debut”.  The album, which is set for a 2014 release date has captured the band’s trademark well-crafted melodic sound and will be preceded by a second E.P, ‘Small Mercies’. ‘Small Mercies’ will contain the song of the same name and two additional tracks that band recorded last year during an intimate filmed live session called “In a Room with Red Empire”.
Last year the band used this filmed live session as a way of previewing for their fans some of the songs which would be recorded for the album, together with some acoustic versions of songs from the ‘Strange Philosophy’ E.P. All of the videos from “In a Room with Red Empire” are available on the band’s YouTube channel: 
Recently Red Empire’s song, ‘Denial’ has been chosen to be included in director, Graham Cantwell’s new film, ‘The Callback Queen’ and hasalso been used in an advertisement for the V.E.C. It would appear that Red Empire’s musical stock is rising fast.
Tickets €12.50 from and or from The Abbey Tavern – phone 01-8322006 or email
