The ‘Back to Basics Tour’ documentary, created by CLIFFORD CLIFFORD Productions, offers an authentic and genuine insight into the world of unsigned and independent musicians creating and promoting their material in Ireland. The documentary follows songsters Greg Clifford, Barry Jay Hughes, and Ian N. Brennan, as they take on a self-funded and booked 17-show tour of the country over 3 weeks, as they attempt to find success or solace in an ambiguous and cluttered industry.
The tour aesthetic was one of the grassroots DIY graft, with an emphasis placed on pure, honest and stripped back acoustic performances. Recognising and working sensibly within limitations and parameters was key, as was ‘bringing music back to its simplest form… bringing it all back to basics’.
