Bagatelle started in 1978 at a time when original bands weren’t all that successful in Ireland . In fact the idea of a band touring nationwide with
a full original music set just didn’t work out ……… for most!
However, Bagatelle’s music DID work and would establish them firmly
on the Irish Music Circuit/Worldwide. Over those 40 years they have
had several No 1 singles with Iconic songs like Summer In Dublin, Second Violin, Trump Card etc. Platinum & Gold Album sales plus Classic Emigration Songs like …… Streets Of New York, Flight of Earls and Boston Rose written of course by Bagatelles Hit Man …… Liam Reilly.
They have shared stages with legends like Bob Marley, John Denver, The Pogues, Duran Duran, Van Morrison, George Micheal, U2, Jose Feliciano and UB40. The list is endless!!
