Niall Connolly returns to Rockwood Music Hall to celebrate the release of his 9th studio album, 'The Patience of Trees'. Connolly will be joined by some of NYC's finest musicians, including Len Monachello, Chris Foley and Brandon Wilde as well as some mystery guests.
Connolly's live shows are always memorable events, and his previous album release parties at Rockwood Music Hall have been unforgettable nights that brought all the energy and joy of a summer festival to the Lower East Side.
Connolly has toured all over Europe and the US including festival appearances at Glastonbury, CMJ, Prague Fringe Festival, Acoustic Festival Düsseldorf, Cork Folk Festival and Cuala NYC. He has opened for Glen Hansard, Lisa Hannigan, Mick Flannery, Lucius, Evan Dando, Eugene Kelly, Lambchop, Wallis Bird, MisterWives and many more.
The Patience of Trees is Connolly's finest album to date and features guest performers Mick Flannery, Javier Mas ( from Leonard Cohen's band ), Anna Tivel and E.W. Harris as well as Connolly's regular NY band.
He is the founder of Big City Folk Collective. Now in its 16th year, Big City Folk hosts dozens of events annually throughout New York.
