Last night saw the final date in Orla Gartland’s first mini tour, taking in sold out shows in London, Manchester, Bristol, Cork and Dublin. Now I wont do a full review of the gig as I’ve done some before.
This was Orla Gartlands first official tour and the first since completing her end of school exams (the Leaving Cert). Without even releasing an ep yet she sold out shows in Ireland and england, has over 15,000 followers on twitter, over 73,000 subscribers on YouTube and she is only 18.

Apologies for the vertical video.

It was fitting that the end of her tour took place in a church as the crowd were fairly subdued (An Irish crowd in a church is always gonna be a struggle to get a rowdy gig atmosphere, we just can’t seem to get completely past it being a church), having played Cork the day before to a much wilder crowd no doubt. It was with silence during her songs that Orla was praised by her crowd. So instead of the wild chants of “one more tune” and endless cheering it was a standing ovation and the promise of a debut EP this year that Orla left the stage. This was the end of a tour but really the beginning of what I hope is a bright future for one of our most talented young singer songwriters today.
