Three bands will play 32 shows in all 32 counties this August and September on the The All Ireland Tour (of All of Ireland).

Isaac Jones, Henry Earnest, Passersby and guests on dates have planned 32 shows in all 32 counties on a daily tour that over the course of 32 days. 

The tour begins in Wicklow on August 15th and hit a major city each weekend date, with the final show in the Button Factory on September 15th. The artists are self-funding the tour and have pay-what-you-want Bandcamp compilation to raise funds for their travel and accommodation.

Merch will also be available designed by Dublin artist Kevin Judge. The poster and typeface has been designed by recent NCAD graduate Anna Frizelle.

Guests on the tour on dates include Messyng and more to be announced.

A “Dress Rehearsal” will be an open show taking place in Dublin city very early in August, right before the tour takes place.

Isaac Jones

Isaac Jones began releasing music in July of 2019. He released a slew of singles and an EP in 2020 before taking a break for nearly 3 years. This hiatus is concluding with The All Ireland Tour, and the release of the EP GET LOST!, coming out in early August.
Isaac Jones blend of Indie and RnB has seen much support globally since the release of his first single Listen, garnering him over a million streams across his work, and his new release is the announcement of a new direction, more oriented towards distortion and noise while maintaining the attention to songwriting that is always at the core of his work.

Passersby

Passersby is a producer and songwriter from Dublin, Ireland. The solo moniker of Diarmuid O’ Connor, formerly of Angular Hank, Passersby has been releasing moody folktronica since 2021. His music eschews categorization, taking the listener through a variety of genres, from shoegaze and noise, to folk and pop, all of which balance on dense atmospheric textures and lush production. Passersby is taking his band on The All Ireland Tour, where they will bring his arrangements to life. He is currently finishing work on the followup to his eclectic 2021 cassette ALWAYS.

Henry Earnest

Henry Earnest is a producer and songwriter from Dublin. After 2018’s pop influenced mixtape “When You Get Caught Between The Moon & Dublin City“, Henry spent four years developing a more intimate and personal artistic approach. This led to the 7 tracks comprising 2023’s “Dream River“. The album sees him continue his long-standing dedication to the emotional catharsis unique to pop-music, while also using the genre as a means by which to flirt with a larger range of ambient and experimental atmospheres and styles.
