Barry Greaves Dj Set @ Open Ear '17

Early on the Saturday afternoon of last year's festival we got a call from Whirling Hall of Knives saying they would be unable to perform on the Sunday night. We quickly threw on our thinking caps to figure out how to fill their late night slot. One of the first names that came to mind was Barry Greaves, arguably one of the country's most under-rated djs and one with the skills and versatility to deliver a fitting set at the last minute. It's no mean feat getting ones arse to Sherkin Island from Dublin, especially on a Sunday, yet Barry traversed trains, planes and automobiles (um...) and within a few hours of arriving confidently unleashed a  killer hour of left-of-centre techno. Bigs up to Mr Greaves the Open Ear super-sub par excellence.
