With their debut shows on July 1st and September 9th being such a great success, The Church Blues Club has changed its name to reflect the beauty and surroundings of its location, and the stunning venue remains the same.
After all, the music comes from the land. You’ll be in for another real treat on December 10th when Mountain Blues & Roots Club returns to Saint George’s Arts & Heritage Centre in Mitchelstown.
Ireland’s newest blues club, Mountain Blues & Roots Club have adopted Saint George’s as their spiritual home, and a fine home it is indeed!
Mountain Blues & Roots Club will welcome their house blues band, Gerry Quigley’s The Mystic Blues Band reincarnated as Gerry Quigley’s Muddy Blues trio, without the drummer and the result is incredible. Another unique and mesmerizing sound, playing a mix of their own originals and classic blues, along with a few traditional Irish songs to surprise you along the way!
The band has just returned home from their Irish tour, which included three headline shows at the new Ballyshannon Blues n Roots Festival in Co Donegal, and an epic fundraising show at The Button Factory in Dublin which included Eric Bell from Thin Lizzy.
Gerry and his Muddy Blues Trio will show us just how versatile they are, with no two shows ever exactly the same and surprises are guaranteed.
Best described as blues-inspired progressive folk rock with a mystical magical Celtic feel, Gerry and his band will at times entrance you and take you away to another world. You’ll hear Gerry play an eclectic collection of guitars and things with strings including mandolin and some seriously mad sounds from his one of a kind double-neck mandola/bouzouki named Shaun and Sheila!
Special guest for the night will be singer/songwriter and solo guitarist the wonderful and talented Isabel Quigley from Australia, now based in Cork city. Isabel’s style is distinctly her own, and has brought her great applause in the folk and indie folk genres. Isabel is no stranger to the stage, she will captivate with her own style of original folk and acoustic guitar. Guitar lovers don’t miss this show!
Saturday, 10th December at Saint George’s Arts and Heritage Centre, Mitchelstown. Doors open 7.30pm for an 8pm start. Tickets €15, available online from Eventbrite or at the door on the night.
