Few bands have as great a live reputation as The Waterboys. From their mid-1980s “big music” period through the influential mix of Celtic, gospel, and country on their classic Fisherman’s Blues tours, to the hundreds of brilliant shows accompanying the last decade’s rootsy, soulful triptych of albums Modern Blues, Out Of All This Blue and Where The Action Is The Waterboys have consistently blended tightness, inspiration, and improvisation to reach heights of performance few other acts can. The 2020 version of the band features the established core of Mike Scott (vocals, guitar, piano), Steve Wickham (electric fiddle), Memphis keyboard great “Brother” Paul Brown, ace British drummer Ralph Salmins and funky Irish bassman Aongus Ralston.
Meanwhile, the relevance and popular reach of The Waterboys have never been greater. Their songs have been performed by artists as varied as Ellie Goulding, who scored a top 3 UK hit with “How Long Will I Love You”; Prince and U2 who sang “The Whole Of The Moon” onstage, and Fiona Apple, who recorded it last year; indie rockers The War On Drugs, Dawes and The Mystery Jets; and classic singers Tom Jones and Rod Stewart. “The Whole Of The Moon” featured in last year’s smash Netflix film Let It Snow and top HBO series The Affair. Waterboys music shows no sign of fading. Come and feel the fire.
