This truly international Celtic folk rock band headed by Mike Scott are back with their acclaimed new album Modern Blues, and are taking it Stateside for a 27-date tour in 2015.

In fact, their biggest success to date was their release in 2010 of 20 poems by William Butler Yeats, set to musical accompaniments. The show played in Dublin for five nights to sold-out crowds and received positive critical acclaim.
