Ike Reilly: Solo
“Ike Reilly saddles up his unparalled muse … and takes us to a new place, again. No one else in America rocks the common man's experience in such uncommon ways. Modern and ancient, punk and pub, heart-breaking and knife-wielding…” –The New York Times
Ike Reilly’s compelling solo performances are equally as intriguing as the Ike Reilly Assassination. The leader of the fierce IRA will show up with just an acoustic guitar, performing with Tom Morello at political rallies in Los Angeles or at the birthday party of the great crime writer Elmore Leonard outside of Detroit or in the clubs and pubs in Ireland as an American troubadour. Johnny Hickman of the band Cracker has called Ike “one of the best songwriters in America" and in fact some of Reilly’s anthemic songs are mainstays of the Cracker set.
