FOLLOWING a string of tour dates in the US, folk/Americana duo Hudson Taylor have confirmed a show in Limerick playing Live at the Big Top on Friday October 11.
The band comprises of brothers Harry and Alfie Hudson-Taylor, currently signed to Rubyworks Records.
Hudson Taylor embarked on a sold-out European tour in 2018, playing to crowds in the UK, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and the Netherlands. They made their US TV debut on Good Day New York on Fox and WGN-TV in Chicago. They also completed high-profile online sessions for Paste Magazine, Baeble Music and BalconyTV in LA.
Since first emerging on Youtube and Dublin’s Grafton Street years ago as Harry and Alfie, they rebranded to Hudson Taylor marking a shift in maturity and direction.
The bands released Feel It Again EP amassed over 1.2 million monthly listeners on Spotify. It was produced by Ryan Hadlock, best known for his work with The Lumineers and Vance Joy. Their lead-off single ‘Feel It Again’ was one of the biggest Irish airplay hits of 2017. Streaming figures now stand well in excess of 10 million.
The guys credit their energetic performances to the adrenaline of the crowd and the great musical chemistry they have with their band.
“We keep each other on our toes. Playing on stage, playing in front of people, it’s such a pleasure of an opportunity… We’ve just kind of always try to have fun and not take ourselves too seriously or become too nervous,” said Alfie.
