Kevin and James are delighted to announce a headline performance in Tramline, 5 Hawkins Street, Dublin on March 3rd 2018. Coinciding with the new album ‘Break Loose’, released on March 2nd, Tupelo will reveal their new catalogue of songs to a live audience at this stunning new venue. The show has an additional excitement factor as it’s the band’s first headline show in the city in a few years.
Tupelo at its core is comprised of Dublin man James Cramer and Mayo’s Kevin Duffy. The band’s name is taken from Van Morrison’s iconic track Tupelo Honey. Tupelo likes to encompass a variety of musical backgrounds and styles. The band’s sound has evolved from more acoustic, trad-based of the earlier years to its now fuller electric indie / alt folk fusion. The listener can decide themselves how they wish to categorize the sounds. Music is subjective after all.
With two albums behind them of original music written entirely by the band’s singer, James Cramer. In recent years Tupelo has played sold out tours in Denmark and Holland, together with festivals and shows in the UK, France, Belgium, Norway, Russia and most recently the Kansas and Michigan Irish festivals in the USA. The band’s energetic and the solid encouragement of crowd interaction during the shows, has led to the enhancement of the band’s live reputation and the sold-out show stats the guys now enjoy on the continent and elsewhere!
Signed to Crashed Records, in addition to its own sold out shows internationally, in recent years Tupelo has also enjoyed performing live on All Ireland Hurling Final day in Croke Park and strong airplay both here at home both at independent local & national radio together with strong support from BBC Radio 2 in the UK.
“An eclectic band from Ireland that pumps out original music as thoughtful as it is exciting. Visceral, unpredictable music and an infectious sense of humor exhibited by charismatic lead singer James Cramer.”
Kansas City Star newspaper (USA)
“Worthy of a place on the devil’s jukebox, with its Mumford-esque mix of bar-room jauntiness and appropriated Americanisms. Deeply Charming.”
“Our favourite rootsy-rockers.
The banjo has never been so cool.”
"Tupelo turned a mellow, chilled, laid-back festival Friday evening into a rip-roaring, foot-stomping frenzy that nearly brought the tent down, in the best possible way. A delightfully unexpected and unforgettable end to the first night."
Deer Shed Festival, UK
“Grade A acoustic musicianship…”
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Tupelo a great band from Dublin. They have a wonderful sound, great musicianship and fantastic songwriting. They have a rootsy sound of great mixtures from blues and country to trad. They move the audience from mood to mood with ease from heartfelt patriotism to pure good auld fashioned fun with their brilliant songs. With their lead singers charm and the bands sense of fun they'll have you in the palm of their hand. What more could you want?”
