We are delighted to welcome Pat Crilly back to the club. One of the best live performers on the local scene, Pat is a superb songwriter and a talented singer and instrumentalist. Born in Ireland, raised in Scotland, living in England, Pat spent 12 years in Norway and writes songs about places and folks he’s met in his life from Cork to the Congo and Norway to Nova Scotia. Playing his original brand of bluesy folk, mostly in DADGAD tuning, he loves performing and songwriting, and it shows.
“A great live act , Pat reminds me of Roger Chapman and Feargal Sharkey mixed with Peter Gabriel , songs in that vein too. Quirky, bluesy, and deep as Loch water”, Get Rhythm Magazine.
Seasick Steve commented “This guy’s good!” after hearing Pat at London’s 12 Bar Club.
Our own Brian Burke will be fleshing out the evening with his infectious singing and playing. Another highly prolific and talented songwriter, Brian plays bazouki, mandolin and harmonica, and is a gifted all-round entertainer.
