Ger Wolfe is a modern day troubadour, a singer, a songwriter and a poet who weaves beautiful melody around his word and rhyme, always delivered with a gorgeous voice and that totally unique finger-picking guitar style.
He specialises in crafting songs that will make you wonder in awe at the beauty and the sadness of Life in almost equal measure, yet always tipping the balance towards an overpowering sense of Hope and Joy.
He has toured extensively in Ireland and in the U.K. both as a solo artist and with various combinations of his band ‘The New Skylarks’ over the last twenty years.
In concert sometimes with ‘The New Skylarks’, often featuring drummer Martin Leahy, Violinist Edel Sullivan and Double-bass player Paul Frost, the music becomes ever-more mesmerising.
Ger has released eight full albums worth of his own songs, the latest “Ger Wolfe & The New Skylark’s Melody Bright & The Favourite Sparrow” – a compilation of work from some of the previous CDs and a new song in his latest single ‘Love is in the Lost and Found’.
As popular as ever on National radio, Ger’s song ‘The Curra Road’ has found its way into the hearts of many singers and listeners alike but this New album promises to show people the wide variety of his work with The Skylarks that might have slipped under the radar.
The album features special guest appearances from a stellar cast including Karan Casey, Fiona Kelleher, Kevin Murphy, John Spillane, Annette Buckley and many more. Ger is a gentle singer and songwriter in a million with a musical gift worth paying attention to-simple medicine for a complicated world.
