Our Guests for Culture Night 2016!


Here we go!

We are proud to present SCOOPS and Shay Cotter! This is very exciting! We are so lucky to be able to host this event with such wonderful artists. Both are great friends of the Studio and both are so talented.

DUBLIN MAGAZINE wrote about Shay: “he is an artist who stuns the audience with his guitar virtuosity and catchy songs” He has a unique finger picking style and poetic and quirky lyrics. He has guested with the likes of The Gypsy Kings, David Gray, Jools Holland, The Doobie Brothers, Damien Rice and Paul Brady. He will perform with a guest pianist from Chile, Nelson Olivares Alfaro. With PJ Curtis proclaiming Shay as “an absolutely marvelous live performer and outstanding songwriter” we can’t wait for this gig.

Scoops are an Irish band hailing from Dublin and its members are: Stephen ‘Scoops’ Cooper (Lead Vocaluitar), Stephen O’Rourke(Drums, Percussion and Backing Vocals) and Kevin Murphy (Lead Guitar and Backing Vocals).

Scoops himself is a Dublin born singer songwriter who was honing his craft for a number of years, gigging relentlessly all over the country. Stephen O’Rourke originally from Waterford Ireland made the move from his home to Dublin in late 2014 to join Scoops and they began to tour as a two-piece playing original music. It was then in early 2016 that Kevin Murphy joined to finalise the line up of Scoops and they began working on their debut EP.

What a lineup! This gig is not to be missed!
