Live: Emmett Tinley performing Prayer Boat's Pochinelle

Great news Prayer Boat fans, Emmett Tinley and his band will be performing the Prayer Boat's Pochinelle at Whelan's on the 14th of October. Doors are at 8 p.m. Tickets are €21.50. The album itself appeared as number 68 on my list of the best Irish albums of all time, which can be seen here.

He'll also be playing Paradiso on Weteringschans 6-8 in Amsterdam, so my bro can go to that in December!

Here's the press release:
The Prayer Boat's Polichinelle is being remastered and repackaged for 10th Anniversary. Emmett Tinley and band will perform the album in its entirety in Whelan’s on 14th October as part of the venues 20th Birthday celebrations. A copy of the anniversary album is included in the ticket price.

Having been remixed and re-ordered for various record companies in its lifetime, the Prayer Boat's Polichinelle became a classic music industry cliché. An album that found favour and love amongst many in the music business, media and record companies but only ever found its way into a few record collections. It's not that nobody tried. The album came out in the US in 2001 on Atlantic and was well received but it's momentum was lost after 9/11 as Atlantic, like most, were in disarray and a tour at that time was pulled.

Here's 'Dark Green' on Kenny Live back in the day:

Loved that album. Do you know who he has in the backing band? Anyone from the Prayer Boat?

Thanks for that, that's the best news I've heard all day. I love that album.
Although I went to the Whelans website to check it out and realised that I missed three Josh Ritter shows playing three different albums in full with a string quartet!! That sounds awesome. Would have loved tickets for that.
Anyways at least I'll get to hear some Prayer Boat.
