Limerick’s very own Hermitage Green have announced that they are set to play their biggest gig to date at King Johns Castle in 2017 with tickets going on sale Monday, December 19. Hermitage Green King Johns Castle
The band is set to perform in the Castle on the Sunday of the May Bank Holiday weekend, April 30 after spending the past couple of years touring and selling out shows in Ireland, the UK, and Australia.
The band played the same date this year in the hugely popular Big Top at the Milk Market – a sold out gig, as are two upcoming gigs in Dolan’s Warehouse.
King Johns Castle is set to be the band’s only gig in Limerick throughout 2017 as more emphasis is being put on their second album rather than touring.
The band reached a milestone in their career when they signed a record deal with Sony back in 2015 and have since then released their critically acclaimed debut album, Save Our Souls which rightfully rose to a ranking of number three in the Irish Albums Charts playing a host of high profile gigs, including on the main state at Electric Picnic and a sold out gig in the Olympia in Dublin.

Hermitage Green has previously fulfilled a lifelong dream earlier this year by performing with none other than their idol, grammy award-winning songwriter Jimmy Webb at the Lime Tree Theatre.
The band has come a long way since performing in the Curragower Bar during the early days and have even released an EP entitled, “Live at the Curragower” recalling where they really developed as a band and what can be seen as the start of their successful career.
The band’s unique arrangement of instruments that includes the bodhrán, djembe, rhythmic guitar and banjo sets them apart as a truly original offering of Irish Music. They have already played alongside the likes of Gavin James, Josh Ritter, Walking On Cars and The Pogues and 2016 will see them bring their music to many, many more.
