The British-Irish folk band, set up by Mike Scott in 1983, reformed in 2000 after their extremely successful run in the 80’s and 90’s, and have since continued to travel worldwide with their hugely successful tracks, including ‘Whole of the Moon’ and ‘How Long Will I Love You’. Their 1989 album, Fisherman Blues, is ranked as the band’s most influential work, and was featured in the book ‘1001 Albums You Must Here Before You Die’.
The Waterboys are famous for their rich, distinctive sound, which incorporates R&B, Hip Hop and country, and have collaborated with some of the biggest names in Irish traditional music, including fiddler Steve Wickham, drummer Dave Ruffy, keyboardist Guy Chambers, and bassist Marco Weissman. The Waterboys have always had a unique relationship with Ireland since their first appearance at Galway Arts Festival in 1989, with lead singer, guitarist and pianist Mike Scott stating that Ireland has had a great influence over the band’s sound: ‘I felt at home. It felt creative, music was everywhere, it was easygoing. I liked the Irish imagination.’
