Oldseed – 30th September 2016



It’s the summer of 2003 and Craig Bjerring notices that the band Smog is playing in his hometown. He contacts the promoter and asks if he can get on the bill. The promoter says he needs to hear some music so Craig promptly records 5 songs and gets the gig.

Oldseed is the project of Winnipeg, Canada native Craig Bjerring. Based in Germany for 10 years, Oldseed has been touring mainland Europe on and off ever since. This is his first visit to these shores but we are pretty sure it will not be his last.

Oldseed play the Pine Lodge, Myrtleville on Friday 30th September 2016 at 10pm.

LodgeFest2 – 8th October 2016



Like the Olympics Lodgefest comes around but every 4 years..

Come celebrate the launch of our fourth album, Demons, in the amazing surroundings of Pine Lodge, Myrtleville.

Following the super successful original Lodgefest in 2012, Hope is Noise are once again hosting another potentially savage night of music, pints and throwing shapes.
Support on the night comes from our good friends from Ten Past Seven, Horse and Onkalo. You’d be fairly silly to miss this…

Admission is €5.

There will be a bus running from Cork City from St. Patrick’s Quay at 6.30 pm and leaving from the Pine Lodge at 1 am. Tickets for the bus will be €10 and include admission to the gig.

Stay tuned to the event page for details on how you can get your hands on your ticket. The tickets will be issued on a first come, first served basis.

Bandicoot Promotions presents CHARLIE PARR on Friday 19th Aug 2016 at the Pine Lodge, Myrtleville, Cork.  Admission is free,  doors open 9pm.
Charlie Parr is a roots musician like no other today.  The Minnesota musician has built a frenzied following of fans around the world with his energetic performances and 12 records.  On his 13th album and Red House Records debut, “Stumpjumper”, Charlie showcases his blistering finger-picking as he switches between acoustic guitar, dobro and banjo — and keening, cut-through-the-crowd vocals that resonate with a conviction that runs deep and true. It’s the music of a self-taught guitarist and banjo player who grew up with his dad’s recordings of America’s musical founding fathers, including Charley Patton and Lightnin’ Hopkins, Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly. His heartfelt and plaintive original folk blues and traditional spirituals don’t strive for authenticity: they are authentic.  Parr’s inspiration is drawn from the alternately fertile and frozen soil of Minnesota; his songs exude a Midwestern sensibility and humility.

Most of his recordings to date have eschewed typical studio settings; he’s recorded in warehouses, garages, basements and storefronts, usually on vintage equipment, which gives his work the historic feel of field recordings. It’s not because he wants to sound like he was discovered 75 years ago by Alan Lomax; it’s  because most modern recording studios make the reticent and self-effacing Parr feel uncomfortable. After a health scare a few years back, he lives very simply, no alcohol and a vegan diet, often cooking up his rice and beans on his engine manifold on the lonely, cross-country drives. He doesn’t go in much for fashion and frills and lives simply on the road, usually sleeping in his car.
