Marcus Magee & The Hollaw Men

Following great success in 2023, Marcus Magee & The Hollaw Men are delighted to have their Cavan launch night of their debut album “Rising from the Hollaw” at the Cavan Arts Festival.

Tickets: €20.00 (+€1 Booking fee)

The band formed in October 2022 following Marcus receiving his first clear scan after a stage 4 cancer diagnosis. Music has been a big part of the front man's healing journey and the health threat propelled him to finally share many years' worth of original songs with the world.

The band formed to do a one night show in the Townhall Theatre Cavan which blew up and resulted in multiple sellout shows in a number of different venues across 2023. One year later and things have evolved - the band have now recorded their debut album.

Marcus shares his full story through a setlist of powerful songs intertwined with stories of hope, fear, love and self expression. It is an emotional, funny and authentic show which has captured the hearts of audiences.

The audience can look forward to being drawn into a captivating world with a genre blend of rock, blues, folk and trad, each song infused with the Hollaw Men's distinctive sound. The band is also very excited to have some special guests join them on the night along with their very own Ben Folkman opening the show with his amazing renditions of funky blues instrumentals and songs. Ben plays bass with the band but is a renowned fingerpicking style guitar player.
