Lantern, Wexford Spiegeltent Festival, The Waterboys

Few bands have as great a live reputation as The Waterboys. From theirmid-1980s “big music” period through the influential mix of Celtic, gospeland country on their classic _Fisherman’s Blues_ tours, to the hundreds ofbrilliant shows accompanying the last decade’s run of supremely in-formalbums from 2011’s _An Appointment With Mr Yeats _to this summer’s _GoodLuck, Seeker_ The Waterboys have consistently blended tightness, inspirationand improvisation to reach heights of performance few other acts can.  Ledby mercurial and brilliant Scottish guitarist/vocalist Mike Scott, the 2020version of the band features the established line-up of Memphis keyboardgreat “Brother” Paul Brown, ace British drummer Ralph Salmins and funkyIrish bassman Aongus Ralston.The popular reach of Waterboys music has never been greater. Their songshave been performed by artists as varied as Prince, The Killers and U2, allof whom have performed their classic The Whole Of The Moon; and Fiona Applewho masterfully recorded the song last year; Ellie Goulding, who scored atop 3 UK hit with “How Long Will I Love You”; indie rockers The War OnDrugs, Dawes and The Mystery Jets; and classic singers Rod Stewart and TomJones. “The Whole Of The Moon” also featured in last year’s smash Netflixfilm Let It Snow and top HBO series The Affair.Waterboys music shows no sign of fading, and the best place to experience itis played by the originators in our spiegeltent.
