The music industry in Ireland is soaring with artists from all genres making waves. As someone with quite a varied taste in music, I’m always looking to discover what else is out there. I can pretty much appreciate anything from pop to hip hop so when it comes to any live music performance, I am all game!
The Wiley Fox on Eden Quay, Dublin offers a variety of live music on Monday nights for those who share a similar sentiment. It has quite a small and intimate downstairs setting where singer-songwriters of all backgrounds can perform their work of art. The pub also has an upstairs section for separate music acts.
The first time I went to The Wiley Fox for a music gig, there was a songwriter who sang in Russian. I was impressed by how the multi-lingual artist was able to sing in her native tongue, play the guitar and still keep the Irish audience engaged. That’s what you call talent!
Speaking of talent…
Another gifted artist who never fails to grab the attention of large crowds is rapper Celaviedemai. The Galway artist will have her own headline show on December 18th in Workman’s Club on Wellington Quay, Dublin.
Celaviedemai has been climbing the ranks in the Irish Hip Hop scene for quite a few years now and has opened up for a number of household names including Lil Wayne, Mac Miller and Hoodie Allen. She has also been featured in Vice, New York Times and Ireland’s very own, Nialler9 following the release of her latest music video to her single called ‘Confessions.’
If you’re conflicted between the two, then don’t be! Live music in the Wiley Fox is on every Monday while Celaviedemai headline supported by Melina Malone will only happen on Wednesday 18th. Two birds in one week? I think so!
