Michael Darcy & The Sparks Rocks The Linsmore Tavern!

This Friday night, the Linsmore Tavern is bringing in the super-talented Michael Darcy & The Sparks for an EP Release Party for his latest work, "The Trailer Sessions".  Michael Darcy has been performing around the GTA for the last few years in his duo known as the Irish Guys, which has gained a major following for playing old Irish Classics and Ballads!  This Friday night will be a different night, as Michael will be playing with a full-on 6 piece band playing his original music that can be described as Folk, Rock, Country, Roots and of course Irish!

Growing up in the wild and beautiful County Clare, on the west coast of Ireland, singer/songwriter Michael Darcy was surrounded and inspired by traditional music at a very early age. He began playing the accordion when he was only 6, competing in several national competitions over the span of a few years, winning multiple awards. He was also part of a successful, local set-dancing group; awarded All-Ireland titles, as well as International titles at the World Championships in Manchester, England 1997.

By the age of 10, following exposure to a cassette tape of legendary folk singer, Christy Moore - "Live at the Point", Michael was inspired to focus his musical attention on the guitar - teaching himself. It was then through the passion of this new instrument, he discovered the magic of such Irish bands like Planxty, The Waterboys, The Pogues, The Dubliners, The Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem and so on. From further afield, he started listening to the gritty-American sounds of Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Steve Earle, John Prine and Guy Clark to name a few. By 19, Michael was playing solo gigs all across the west of Ireland, establishing a strong musical reputation as a bright and ambitious new talent.At age 25, he embarked on a life-changing uproot across the Atlantic, with guitar in tow, arriving in his current home town of Toronto, Canada.

This is going to be a real fun night with some incredible and unique music!  There will be a $5 cover charge and the band will start at 9:30pm!  Come on out and support this amazing artist and his music!
