Eclectics: Caoilian Sherlock
w/ Eoin Dolan
The Black Gate
9pm, May 27th
Caoilian Sherlock released his debut EP ‘The Faraway’ under the moniker Saint Caoilian in 2017, on the back of a year of prestigious support shows with Roy Harper, Ryley Walker, Sean O’Hagan, and a tour around Ireland with Joan Shelley and Nathan Salsburg. Coinciding with this tour were shows at Body & Soul, Another Love Story, Sounds From A Safe Harbour, Quiet Lights and It Takes A Village Festivals. With the release new single ‘Shades Of You’ he has revoked his own sainthood and made the brave decision to re-enter the world as a mere mortal.
Playing guitar and writing songs since the age of fifteen, well worn through years in rock and roll bands his solo material takes considered, yet facetious ramble through the deepest of existential crisis. During live performances he is backed with an electric guitar, a super cool rock band, a sense of entitlement, a degree of casual sombreness, a joyous approach to playing music and an overly sentimental view of almost everything.
Eoin Dolan is a songwriter and producer from Galway, a seaside town on the west coast of Ireland. His music combines sublime and sometimes heartbreaking melody with lush instrumentation and a classic songwriting finesse to create a vintage psychedelic pop sound.
