SCULLION_(c)Rich_Gilligan_IMG_3347.jpeg

Formed in the mid-1970’s, Scullion are revered and feted as one of Ireland’s most innovative, original and brilliant live bands. Their upcoming new record emphasises the band's musical curiosity and like all of the band records, it breaks new ground.

 

Through all the years of the band’s existence there have been times of hiatus, where the members have followed different interests, Philip with his film and radio work, “Bringing it all Back Home, Other Voices, for TV and The South Wind Blows” his much loved series on RTÉ Radio One, and countless musical documentaries films.

Robbie has over the years been working with singers, Karen Casey, and Eimear Quinn, and Piper Eoin Duignan. He released a solo CD titled “Overdue” in 2004.

Sonny has been doing solo gigs around Ireland, including a long residency with Robbie in Annesley House in Fairview Dublin. A collection of his songs recorded with the band Radar, under the same name, was released in 2005. He has been busy with a new collection of work due to see the daylight in 2013, under the working title “Swallows and Farms”

In mid-2012, Scullion started work on a new collection of songs with recording engineer Ruairí O’Flaherty in his studio in Killarney, Co. Kerry. Ruairí had worked on the Other Voices series, and also on sound production for some of the band’s live shows. They released their first album in 27 years, Long Wave in 2012.

 

Ten years on Scullion are back with a brand new album and a desire to get back on the road. The new album ‘Time Has Made a Change in Me’ arrives on 22nd September 2022 with the first taster of the album, a reminagined version of 'I Need My Girl' by The National is out now.
