BAGATELLE@40: 40 Years of Original Music
Bagatelle started in 1978 at a time when original bands weren’t all that successful in Ireland. In fact the idea of a band touring nationwide with a full original music set just didn’t work out …for most! However, Bagatelle’s music did work, and would establish them firmly on the Irish Music Circuit and worldwide. Over those forty years they've had several number one singles with iconic songs like Summer In Dublin, Second Violin, and Trump Card. Platinum and gold album sales and classic emigration songs like Streets Of New York, Flight of Earls, Boston Rose written of course by Bagatelles hit man, Liam Reilly. They have shared stages with legends like Bob Marley, John Denver, The Pogues, Duran Duran, Van Morrison, George Micheal, U2 Jose Feliciano UB40
The list is endless !
Two years ago they completed their Final Year Tour, retired( for all of about three months! ), got bored not touring, then played a major series of “ One for the Road“ sold out gigs right across Ireland and the UK.
