Bagatelle at 40
Bagatelle started in 1978 at a time when original bands weren’t all that successful in Ireland. In fact the idea of a band touring nationwide with a full original music set just didn’t work out ……… for most!
However, Bagatelle’s music DID work, and would establish them firmly on the Irish Music Circuit/Worldwide. Over those 40 years they’ve had several No 1 singles with iconic songs like Summer In Dublin, Second Violin, Trump Card together with Platinum & Gold Album sales, Classic Emigration Songs such as Streets Of New York, Flight of Earls and Boston Rose, which was written by Bagatelles’ Hit Man, Liam Reilly!
They have shared stages with legends like Bob Marley, John Denver, The Pogues, Duran Duran, Van Morrison, George Michael, U2, Jose Feliciano and UB40!
2 years ago they completed their Final Year Tour, retired (for all of about 3 months!), got bored not touring, then played a major series of “One For The Road”, which Sold Out across Ireland and the UK!
