Formed in the mid-1970’s, Scullion are revered and feted as one of Ireland’s most innovative, original and brilliant live bands. Their latest record ‘Time Has Made a Change in Me’ (released September 2022) emphasises the band’s musical curiosity and like all of their records, it breaks new ground.
James Joyce and Sufjan Stevens are woven into the DNA of this record with the inspirational music of Sonny Condell beating at the heart of it.
Recorded during the pandemic, this record is an uplifting and inspirational collection of songs for the head and heart, written to take to the highway, collapse distance and
bring us back together in the halls, front rooms, back rooms and bar rooms of Ireland.
Through all the years of the band’s existence there have been times of hiatus, where the members have followed different interests, Philip with his film and radio work, Bringing it all Back Home, Other Voices for TV and The South Wind Blows, his much loved series on RTÉ Radio One, along with countless musical documentaries and films.
Robbie has over the years been working with singers, Karen Casey, Eimear Quinn, and piper, Eoin Duignan. He released a solo CD titled ‘Overdue’ in 2004.
Sonny has been doing solo gigs around Ireland, including a long residency with Robbie in Annesley House in Fairview, Dublin. A collection of his songs recorded with the band Radar, under the same name, was released in 2005. He also released a collection of work in 2013, titled ‘Swallows and Farms’.
