All London's live music


Folk

Niall Connolly

Green Note Ltd, The Basement Bar, NW1 7AN , [Venue Details]

A master storyteller, NIALL CONNOLLY is the kind of guy you want to find yourself sitting next to at a pub, a wedding, or even a funeral.

On The Patience of Trees, Connolly’s 9th album, his songs are slow-simmered, rich with family histories, and woven with a golden thread of dark Irish humor.

“I’ve got a willingness to see the fun alongside the suffering,” he says. “But I’ve always got one eye on the party.”

Connolly, who splits his time between New York City and the Catskills, writes lyrical folk in the tradition of his fellow Irishman and occasional collaborator Glen Hansard, Leonard Cohen, and Wilco.

In the big, breathtaking build of his new album’s opening track, “It’s a Beautiful Life,” Connolly uses a simple refrain to convey the magnificence and misery of being alive. “When I sing, ‘It’s a beautiful life, most of the time,’ I mean it,” he says. “I mean both parts.”

Though he’s known as one of the busiest live musicians around—“I used to play 150 to 200 gigs per year for years and years,” he says—Connolly was forced to pause when the world shut down in 2020. As he gradually gathered songs for The Patience of Trees, he skipped stones with his young daughter and tried to summon serenity and forbearance from the forest that surrounded his Catskill Mountain home.
