Irish fold legends The Wolfe Tones, one of the biggest & most influential Irish folk bands are bringing their 50th anniversary tour to Sydney for 1 show only at Selina’s at Coogee Bay Hotel.
Formed in Kilrush, County Clare, Eire in 1963, this quartet (originally known as the Wolfe Tones Ballad Group) has been a rebellious presence in the folk music scene since their inception.
The Wolfe Tones are now a trio comprising of Tommy Byrne (lead vocals, guitar & song writers), Brian Warfield (vocals, five string banjo, harp, whistles, uillean pipes), & Noel Nagle (whistles, uillean pipes).
The band has forged their reputation for highly charged political folk singing from their debut single “The Spanish Lady” in 1964 to “The Streets of New York” in 1981 which stayed at the top of Irish charts for seven weeks.
It’s hard to believe but in their native Ireland they have sold more records than fellow patriots U2.
Their Australian tour in January will be the very last time audiences down under will have the privilege of witnessing the Wolf Tones phenomena.
