As well as curating the new Spike Island stage at Electric Picnic and a solo performance (a short taster of which you can have a look at here) Robin also performed with Band of Moonlight Love which were the final act on Sunday night, ending what was a very successful first outing for Spike Island stage.
The band opened their set and drew the crowd in with this self-penned tune of Robin’s called ‘The Compatriot’s Reel’ as seen above. This is a melody that repeats and as it does gets faster and faster – this in fact set the tone for the night with the crowd following suit and getting bigger and bigger as the band played until the room shook from them dancing up and down.
Band of Moonlight Love at Electric Picnic 2019 were: Robin James Hurt on vocals and guitar. Mick Morris on bass and mandolin, Cian Loughnane on fiddle, Clare Faherty on concertina and Dave Keegan on drums.
