Artist Bio:

The Deirdres. Does that name sound familiar? After various performances on quality television programmes such as Poker Star World Cup Poker and the Antiques Roadshow, it's really not surprising! The Deirdres formed in 2006 and since then the enchanting Derby-based 7-piece have been spellbinding audiences up and down the country and even as far afield as Sweden and Denmark with their gloriously shambolic and spontaneous live shows and magical pop. They appeared at this summer's IndieTracks festival, and have played gigs with the likes of Bearsuit, The Bobby McGee's, Horowitz, MJ Hibbett, and many more. The Deirdres are like a soundtrack to your dreams, a glorious, hedonistic mix of an infinite number of instruments, joyous vocals and beautifully addictive melodies. The band have decided by mutual consent to stop, and played their final gig at Bar One in Derby in April 2009.[Read More]
