Cry Before Dawn and Wallis Bird on Killarney Festival bill

By Jim Hayes

Cry Before Dawn are back together again for an appearance at the Killarney Festival of Music and Food this weekend.

The Wexford band will play an hour-long set from 8.15 p.m. on the Tony Fenton stage Sunday night, just ahead of an appearance by Father John Misty.

Also flying the Wexford flag in Killarney will be Wallis Bird who takes to the Acoustic Stage on Saturday at 8.15 p.m.

The singer from Ballyhogue released her fourth studio album 'Architect' in recent months and is in high demand on the summer circuit.

The Killarney festival winds up Sunday night with a 10 p.m. show from Duran Duran, one of many acts with eighties roots making appearances over the two days of the boutique festival at the picturesque Killarney House Demesne.

Jools Holland, The Proclaimers, The Undertones, Something Happens, Texas, ABC, The Stunning, and The Frank & Walters are also on the bill.

Cry Before Dawn, one of the leading Irish bands of the late eighties, reformed in late 2010 and have since played a number of high-profile shows as well as releasing two albums and a new single.
