Inchequin's new line up will be on tour playing extensively in Turkey beginning in May. Details of gigs will appear soon on this site.
With the excitement of the Eurovision now over we can now look back at the events of last month.
The Last Time / Son Kez was chosen from 2000 songs and was in the final of Ireland’s Eurosong competing with four teenage artists and songs with the winner to represent Ireland in the Eurovision Song contest 2013.
Inchequin’s The Last Time / Son Kez written by Hugh O’Neill & Sinead Bradley won three polls where the people of Europe could vote. In Ireland the average age of voters is eleven years old after the interest Jedward brought to the show last year. Young Ryan from Strabane won on the night and we wish him well in Malmo in May.
Inchequin are now putting a mini CD together to be released in Istanbul in May. The full band will be playing their first concerts later this year in Istanbul.
Hugh and Sinead as a duo will be doing a tour of Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Germany in Oct. and Nov.
All details will be on this site closer to the time.
On behalf of the band thank you everyone for your great support on this latest adventure.
Eurovision Ireland’s “First Big Poll” and the results are in. 12,000 people voted in the poll and the leaders changed several times over the course of the week. We had readers from the 4 corners of the world voting on-line with the highest participants coming from Ireland, United Kingdom, Germany, Turkey, USA, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Finland, Greece, Australia and Malta (to name but a few)
The International readers of Eurovision Ireland have voted as follows
• 6 Points goes to Song 5 – “Kiss Me” performed by Kasey
• 7 Points goes to Song 3 – “Fire” performed by Zoe
• 8 Points goes to Song 2 – “Crashing Down” performed by Aimee
• 10 Points goes to Song 4 – “Only Love Survives” performed by Ryan Dolan
• 12 Points goes to Song 1 – “Son Kez/The Last Time” performed by Inchequin.
So according to the Eurovision Ireland “Big Poll” the Irish/Turkish band Inchequin mentored by Eurovision winning composer Shay Healy, would be their choice of act for Eurovision 2013. Will that be reflected in the Irish Jury and Televote this evening?
If you look at the betting odds with Paddy Power Book Makers in Ireland they have the following ranking
• 1st – Ryan Dolan
• 2nd – Aimee
• 3rd – Zoe
• 4th – Kasey
• 5th Inchequin
However our International Voters have voted for Inchequin performing “Son Kez/The Last Time” as the song that they preferred. Will the International vote be reflected here in Ireland? Not long to find out. Good Luck to all the contestants tonight.
Thanks for all
