Erik Vaughan from Kilgowan, Co. Kildare is an Old Clongownian (2007) making great strides in the musical world. As part of a new and exciting band, Shadows and Dust, Erik (bass, mandolin & vocals) continues to nurture the potential that was first unearthed under the tuition of Mr. Philip Thomas.

With a fast growing following, the band has played some of Dublin’s biggest gig venues in recent months, while performances on the national airwaves have brought their original material to a wider audience across the country. Crucially, the band has also received positive feedback from esteemed publications such as Hot Press and Goldenplec.

Heavily inspired by art, folklore, film and poetry, Shadows and Dust pride themselves on a truly unique sound – entirely different to anything you will have heard before. The band’s debut E.P. Each Year Forever is currently available on iTunes. Check them out on the link provided:
