The Evertides are Ruth McGill, Alma Kelliher and Ruth Smith, an Irish musical trio influenced by close vocal harmony and folk song.
We’ve been together since 2014 and over the last few years have had sell-out shows at Whelan’s, Dublin’s Unitarian Church, Abner Browns and The Abbey’s Peacock Theatre with appearances at festivals such as Temple Bar Trad Fest, Wonderlust @ Body & Soul, Doolin Folk Festival, Whelan’s Ones To Watch, Shorelines Arts Festival and supporting Wallis Bird and The Lost Brothers as part of their European tours.
We’ve performed our version of W.B. Yeats’ The Song of Wandering Aengus at the Yeats150 event Bodies That Can Never Tire. We wrote and performed a song – Mayfly – in just one day for The 24 Hour Plays at The Abbey Theatre. We sang in a Martello Tower to mark Bloomsday at a curated event with Young Hearts Run Free, we were the musical guests on the Irish Times Women’s Podcast for Nollaig na mBan and had a deliciously intimate night of music and food in Cornucopia with Sober Sessions.
We record our debut EP The Evertides in 2016 at Westland Studios and were thrilled with the national and international airplay since its release, including performing live for Arena & Sean O’Rourke on RTÉRadio1 and appearing on The Ray D’arcy TV Show.
December 2017 sees the release of our second EP Winter which we recorded with Gavin Glass at Orphan Recording Studios. See details for both of our EPs on our shop page.
We’re always interested in exciting collaborations and musical projects. Aside from gigs and recording we’ve been involved in music for film, television, theatre, installations and special curated performances. As well as bringing our own original music to life, we love to reinvent classics and unearth hidden musical gems.
We are each professional music makers working every day with the technical, theatrical & performance aspects of music.
The Evertides is where we meet.
And the result is something special.
