Over to Ireland for the Blues – Blackstairs Blues Festival and The Crane Lane



Hiya! Well, we are just about to get the ferry over to Ireland for a weekend of blues! On Friday at midday I will be heading into a school in Enniscorthy to talk to the kids about the history and importance of the blues in music. 9.30 Friday I’m gonna play a 2 hour solo show featuring my National Resonator and beautiful new 6 string cigar box guitar from the most excellent fellas at Drummond and Hammett in Rackards Midnight Saturday¬†we will be headlining with a savage 2 hour full band electric¬†show at Treacys Hotel… Gonna be a proper Blast! Then we are off to The Crane Lane in Cork on Sunday, our regular haunt.. midnight till 2pm… As always, I’m sure we will be well fed, watered, amused and thoroughly shattered upon our return with sore faces and six packs from laughter.. Bloody love you Ireland!!!
