Hermitage Green formed in July 2010 in a locked back room of the Curragower bar, Limerick. What started out as a spontaneous jam session between friends, soon developed in to a strong acoustic outfit with an original sound, for which the band have credited their contrasting musical tastes. These interests range from traditional irish and folk music to metal- and have formed the basis of an entirely unique approach in how the band deliver their material. In their first 12 months together they have played with several notable Irish acts such as Sharon Shannon, The Stunning and The Saw Doctors.
Seeing Hermitage Green live, you can expect hard hitting rhythm sections driven by the tribal combination of bodhran and djembe, rhythmic guitar lines with dobro melodies and four part vocal harmonies soaring over the top.
