The Tidy Tongues are the fictional band featured in Shifting. You might have heard their lovely version of Morrissey’s ‘I Know Very Well How I Got My Name’ that was used in the trailer for John Kennedy’s play.
Lead singer Anna is played by Jessica Walsh. The drummer Eamon is played by Adrian Kavanagh and singer/guitarist David is played by Geoff Warner Clayton.
In the story line, they’re attracting a lot of buzz up in Dublin where they’ve been playing for the past year. They’ll be making their triumphant homecoming return to Kilkenny for a gig in the Pumphouse on June 25th.
(Or else you can just come to see them when Shifting plays in No. 76 John Street from April 18th – 23rd)
