On Monday, February 26th, I'm delighted to present two BAG Debutantes for the price of one - literally!
From Donegal come duo, Blackbird and Crow (Maighread Grace and Stephen Doohan).
Ever wondered what a 21st century Rory Gallagher and Janis Joplin pairing would sound like? Well, wonder no more.
Whether performing their high energy electric slide guitar driven foot-stompin' Blues, or their more paired-back acoustic guitar led material, this is one hot act, Live. Delighted to have them in the BAG.
From the Marble City of Kilkenny, comes Richie Healy.
With detectable influences as broad as Springsteen, Waits, and old Delta Bluesmen, Richie is a songwriter of tremendous depth, and striking lyrical ability.
He is beautifully backed on his brand new album, 'The Perilous Tree', by Ger Moloney on accordion, and Elise Ramsbottom on backing vocals, and both also accompany him Live.
Richie Healy presents himself humbly, and with self-deprecation, but the songs speak volumes, in their truth, and honesty.
Doors open at 8:30pm. Admission is €12 at the door. Patrons are advised to arrive early to avoid disappointment.
