Hermitage Green, from Limerick, are an Irish acoustic folk rock band that started off in Ireland but now boast a dedicated legion of fans across the globe. They have played successful gigs throughout Australia, America, Canada, South Africa, Dubai, France and the UK to name a few! Along with the opportunity to share the stage with The Pogues, Josh Ritter, Walking On Cars, Gavin James and The Trews”.
They have made a large impact in a short period of time. After having released their first full length album via SONY Ireland and watching it climb the charts with tracks like Quicksand, Not Your Lover, and Save Your Soul, the band has been touring internationally to sold out rooms across Ireland, the UK, Middle East, Australia and the US.
The Band spent months in world renowned Rockfield Studios in Wales where their new recordings share company with the likes of Queen, Robert Plant and many others. With Grammy winning producer Matt Lawrence (Adele, Amy Winehouse, Mumford & Sons) at the helm of this record, the band has created an EP entitled Gold & Rust consisting of six progressive sonic masterpieces.
2018 sees the band continuing to tour the globe. “Gold & Rust - the title was inspired by a lyric that Darragh Griffin wrote in the song 'Bring It On Down'.
“I suppose as an album title it represents the many contrasts of being in a band in 2017. The ups and downs, highs and lows, whatever you want to call it... From playing the mainstage at Electric Picnic, to getting laughed out the door of a bank when looking for a mortgage. From walking out of a sold-out Olympia Theatre in Dublin, to playing to seven people in a town somewhere in the U.S. From telling your bandmates you love them and would do anything for them, to trying to kill your bandmates because they piss you off sometimes. 'Gold & Rust' is the dichotomy between the struggle and the absolute privilege of doing what you love for a living.” - Dan Murphy, Hermitage Green.
