THE WHITE HORSE GUITAR CLUB
The White Horse Guitar Club will play Connolly's of Leap on May 12th 2018, bringing their thoroughly unique sound and energy to one of Cork's most prestigious stages.
The White Horse Guitar Club are an 11 piece band born in the music venue, Upstairs at The White Horse, who interpret songs of the Americana/Roots songbook in a truly impactful way - think Welsh voice choir singing the songs of the deep Southern States!
Formed in early 2012, the band evolved from an open club environment into a fully- edged musical touring group of 11 friends over the past 5 years. 11 guys drawn from widely varying backgrounds, bound by a common love of playing guitar and singing music that is deeply rooted in the ne tradition of songwriting that ourishes in the Southern states of America, particularly in Kentucky & Tennessee where the Scots/Irish in uence was and is strong. The group proudly interpret the songs of John Prine, Darrell Scott, Tim O'Brien, Buddy Miller, Townes Van Zandt, Willie Nelson and many more.
The White Horse Guitar club has performed all over Ireland & beyond in the last 5 years, selling out tours in France, Germany, Italy & Holland, along with marquee nights on home soil like the sold out show in Cork's Everyman Palace Theatre in May '17.
All good stories are shaped by the twists and turns of the road and the adventure of The White Horse Guitar Club is very much still being written.
Presented by Connolly's of Leap.
This is an 18+ event.
