Johnny, Barry & Jim of Horslips + Paddy Goodwin and the Holy Ghosts
Sunday 12 May, 7.00pm
Horslips Con 2019
This promises to be very special. Featuring Barry Devlin, Jim Lockhart and Johnny Fean of Horslips who, along with Eamon Carr and Charles O’Connor, explored the frontiers of Celtic music since the 1960s.
In their trilogy of albums, The Book of Invasions, Aliens and The Man Who Built America, the band explored Irish history and the forging of new frontiers in the new world. Horslips paved the way for many Irish artists including U2.
With hits such as Dearg Doom and Trouble with a Capital T, the band became infamous for their blend of Irish trad and rock. Their songs re-tell Irish myths and legends while giving them a unique twist.
Last November fan Rob Aiken put on an event, Horslips Con 2018, for fans who came from as far away as the USA and Europe to see Barry Devlin, Jim Lockhart and Johnny Fean with Myles Lally on drums. This was the first time that such an event had been staged. Rob is delighted that CQAF are presenting this year’s Horslips Convention 2019.
When the band step onto the stage at the Festival Marquee, the response will be rapturous. Do not miss this one.
Please note neither Eamon Carr or Charles O’Connor will perform at tonight’s event.
Support from The ‘Paddy Goodwin and the Holy Ghosts’, legendary blues rockers.
