SONGS & TALL TALES OF JERRY FISH
Jerry Fish is renowned as much for his showmanship as he is for his music. He's a carnival creator, circus ringmaster - complete with Vaudeville moustache - a playwright, singer, songwriter and poet.
Spawned from his Electric Picnic shows which became so popular that they gave him his very own stage "Wherever Jerry Fish goes, the circus is not far behind," he says. "It's a monster, but I love that whole fraternity. My motto is 'unity through diversity'. In a circus, everyone mucks in.”
What a year 2019 has been for Jerry Fish, bringing his Electric Sideshow to a brand new family festival Kaleidoscope and once again at Electric Picnic, a ‘festival within a festival’ highlight at both.
Now the circus is leaving town and Jerry returns to theatres and venues to bring us his enchanting “Songs & Tall Tales of Jerry Fish.” Every show a unique live theatrical experience that dissolves all boundaries between performer and audience.
Mr. Fish's genre bending and idiosyncratic style of entertainment has made him a household name within the Irish Music industry. With two Platinum selling solo albums, an MTV award and IRMA Music Award, and a solid reputation as a supreme and spectacular showman.
He plans to release new recordings this Autumn of two songs penned by the late Daniel Johnston; ‘The Story of An Artist’ and ‘True Love Will Find You in The End’ (feat. Wallis Bird) with arrangements by his friend and renowned composer Cian Boylan. This is a chance to hear an exclusive live performance of these songs and more.
We invite you to join Jerry Fish this winter to ‘Celebrate’ the life of Ireland’s Greatest Showman at Garbos Venue, Mayo Leisure Point, Castlebar, Co. Mayo
