With special guests Mike Sweeney and Paddy O'Hare with The Collective
Fast becoming the next Irish blues guitar hero in the footsteps of Rory Gallagher and Gary Moore, former Young Guitarist of the YearSimon McBride has undeniable guitar artistry combined with a fine voice and a knack for creating memorable hooks and great melodies.
The energy and aggression of Simon's live show recalls those much-missed Irish masters, but McBride's sound is his own - as demonstrated on his much acclaimed latest album Crossing The Line.
"McBride is now amongst the best blues-rock players anywhere in the world" - Guitarist Magazine
Simon will be joined by special guests Mike Sweeney and Paddy O'Hare with The Collective. Taking their cues from blues, country, folk, rockabilly, rock n roll and influences from the likes of Elmore James through to Woodie Guthrie, Mike and Paddy use a mix of acoustic and retro-electric guitars, harmonica, banjo, mandolin, upright bass and cajon to produce a unique amalgam of them all.
