With just a few weeks to go until the festive season really kicks off, you’re more than likely starting to meticulously plan some parties and nights out on the tiles; so make sure you pencil in Hudson Taylor. The lads have announced an end of year show at Whelan’s on Thursday, December 29th.

Dublin duo, brothers Harry and Alfie, released their long awaited debut album ‘Singing For Strangers’ early 2015. Produced by the band and long-term collaborator Iain Archer with help from Mike Einziger and Danton Supple in London, LA & Eastbourne the record features fan favourites Chasing Rubies, Battles and Weapons, and was a top 3 hit in the Irish album charts.

Last year’s Singing For Strangers Tour saw the siblings embark on a mammoth run of dates across Ireland and the UK including two hometown headline shows at the Olympia Theatre which were followed up by playing as special guests to Kodaline at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, performing at the 2FM Xmas Ball alongside Hozier, Little Green Cars and Gavin James amongst others and topping off their with their own run of intimate Whelan’s shows.

Having spent the majority of 2016 on the road touring across Ireland, the UK and Europe the siblings are currently back in the studio writing songs for their new album.
