Featuring Crash Ensemble, Conor O’Brien (Villagers), Gemma Doherty (Saint Sister) + more
For 2 years Scullion have been isolated from each other. Many have been anxious and alone.
Throughout these lonesome days, music and songs have been a salve and an inspiration.
During that time Scullion have recorded an uplifting and inspirational
collection of songs for the head and heart and will take to the highway, collapse distance and
bringing them back together in halls, front rooms, back rooms and bar rooms of Ireland.
 
Formed in the mid-1970’s, Scullion are revered and feted as one of Ireland’s most innovative,
original and brilliant live bands. Their upcoming new record emphasises the band’s musical
curiosity and like all of the band records, it breaks new ground.
Release Schedule:
‘All the Bells in Spain’(single) coming in May 2022
‘Fruit Smelling Shop’ (single) coming June 2022
‘Time Has Made a Change in Me’ (album) coming September 2022
