The Mary Wallopers are going on their biggest UK live tour to date!

The Mary Wallopers have also released a brand new EP ahead of a summer festival season that includes massive shows at Glastonbury, Isle of Wight, TRNSMT and Latitude.

After returning home from sold out tours of the UK, North America and Australia and recent appearances on Later With Jools Holland, Radio 2’s Jo Whiley Show and Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, the band decided to record an EP with regular producer David Noonan in Dublin on a rare weekend off. Home Boys Home includes the title track (a song made famous in 1964 by the Dubliners who recorded it for their first album) as well as versions of the trad song Bonnie Ship The Diamond and a glorious version of The Pogues classic The Broad Majestic Shannon.

The Mary Wallopers on the Home Boys Home EP: ”We decided to go into the studio for a couple of days and record these songs that we have been performing live the last while so anyone who cant get to our festival gigs will have something to listen to. People have been asking for a release of Home Boys Home for a while and it was a good opportunity to record it. We wanted to pay tribute to Shane McGowan by doing a version of Broad Majestic Shannon and have thrown in Bonny Ship the Diamond for good measure. Hope you enjoy!”
