Subterranean Sounds is delighted to announce the return of one-man folk-punk hero, Hamell on Trial to Waterford. His sell out performance was one of the highlights on the vibrant Waterford muisc scene last year.

A Hamell On Trial gig is unlike any other. A vintage Gibson guitar played like a machine gun is accompanied by an torrent of words delivered at breakneck speed. No topic is sacred and Hamell’s visceral lyrics and razor-sharp wit cover topics that range from from family, social issues to celebrity, politics and power. It’s like Bill Hicks, Woody Guthrie and Joe Strummer all rolled into one. With Trump in The White House, there just might be some explosive new material.

Hammel On Trial plays Phil Grimes Pub on Friday March 10th. Due to the Wales-Ireland rugby match being shown on the big screen downstairs, the show starts
