The Gerry Tully Band

The Gerry Tully Band play a wide selection of folk, roots, and Americana music. They nurture a connection to the Appellations and Americana style in which the Irish influence can still be heard. Inspired by the music of The Trans-Atlantic Sessions, Gillan Welsh, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, and Tom Waits, The Gerry Tully Band take you through their rich interpretation of songs with emotive human stories. The songs are intriguing, thrilling and fun.

The Gerry Tully band consists of three friends from County Meath, Gerry Tully, Derek Mathews, and Eugene Donegan. Eugene plays five-string banjo and is the backing vocalist, Derek Mathews plays double bass, and Gerry Tully fronts the band as singer and guitarist. Their polished sound reflects their years of experience as musicians and performers. Their music is their connection and leaves ample room for lighthearted interaction with their audience. If you love quality folk songs, the groove of roots, and down-home Americana style you won’t want to miss The Gerry Tully Band.

Meath Chronicle

Fergal Lynch

‘Comparisons to Moore, Hennessy, or Luke Kelly embarrass the Trim man, but they still need to be made. Those legends of Irish Folk will never be bettered or even equalled, but very few will come as close as Tully when aiming to strike a chord with a traditional audience.’

After Midnight Radio Show

Noel Casey

‘Gerry is a superb interpreter of a song.’

Hotpress Magazine

Jackie Hayden

‘Gerry has a robust voice ideal for mainstream, pop, or folk tunes, and he oozes confidence as a performer echoing back to early Dylan and Tom Paxton.’

‘Gerry Tully is a world class performer’
