The Mariannes

The Mariannes are a Dublin based 6 piece band combining Folk, Rock, Blues and Country influences. Golden Plec described their blend of urban folk as ‘deliciously dark with hints of the Walkabouts and the countrified end of the Rolling Stones’. 
In 2014, their single ‘Lost with All Hands’ won the inaugural songwriting contest at the Clancy Brothers Festival. This year, they launched their EP to a packed Whelan’s Main Venue. They have also played a number of festivals this year and last year including: Ballyshannon Folk Festival, Clancy Brother’s Festival 2014 and 2015 and Galway Fringe Festival. Ceol Collective, in a live review, described The Mariannes as ‘one of the most interesting acts on the alt-folk scene’ with ‘haunting lyrics, breath-taking melodies and stunning vocal harmonies’.
