One of Ireland’s supergroups, Bagatelle performed at Malone’s Irish Bar, Forrest Road, Edinburgh on Sunday 29 May 2011 as part of the band’s 30th anniversary tour.
Presenter Edmund McKay was at Mallone’s to record the event and you can hear the concert on Thursday 9 June at 10.00pm.
This is a great and outstanding achievement for a band to reach it’s 30th Anniversary and for it’s music/songs to still be as popular now as they were way back then. In the 1980s Bagatelle had so many great hits. ‘Summer in Dublin’ kick started this amazing run of hits; songs that would become household favourites in Ireland and eventually all over the globe.
From humble beginnings and endless gigs, Bagatelle toured Ireland for two years and then found ‘overnight’ success when Summer in Dublin went straight to No. 1 and was followed by several hits like Second Violin, Trump Card, Leeson Street Lady to name a few. These songs certainly stood the test of time, as indeed the band themselves have and still sounding as good as ever. Introduced by Edmund McKay.
