After several sold out Australian shows in 2017, one of Europe’s finest folk and rebel artists makes his way back to Australia this year. Gary Óg will once again look to take this country by storm after many highly successful Australia-wide tours through the years, which left audiences begging for more.

Hailing from the Gorbals area in Glasgow, Scotland; Óg developed his craft growing up amongst an Irish community, which in past generations have immigrated to the area in the hope of a better life. “Many people, who were just off the boat from Ireland, settled in the Gorbals,” he said. It was from these working class streets in Glasgow that he developed his penchant for Bob Dylan, Christy Moore and ballads of Irish freedom.

He quickly started a band, Éire Og (meaning Young Ireland), which developed rapidly beyond his expectations and was soon immensely popular in Scotland, Ireland and most of Western Europe. Éire Og attracted impressive crowds, particularly in their ancestral homeland of Ireland - and it’s a place that Óg still loves to perform.

“When I was involved in Éire Og I’d get across monthly because we were playing a lot of gigs there. I love the North, Belfast and Derry especially. I certainly like visiting Derry, it’s a wee bit more relaxed.”

After Éire Og wound to a close, Óg went solo, often supporting legendary Irish group The Wolfetones. Armed only with his unmistakable gravely voice and acoustic guitar, it gave him the opportunity to add his personal touch to a vast repertoire of ballads which often focus on people who were involved in liberation movements across the world.
