The last few years have seen Ham Sandwich perform impressive shows at festivals such as Electric Picnic, Groove and Indiependence. They’ve also supported Pixies and Arcade Fire and headlined The Olympia Theatre.
They played the Garageland shows from way back in 2003 in venues such as The Isaac Butt and Eamon Dorans.
Best Garageland moment – Headlining The Sugar Club at the launch of White Fox.
Fun fact – Niamh Farrello is actually Niamh Farrell and the O was stuck onto her name by her friends in true Dublin fashion although Niamh herself is from Kells.
