Enniscorthy return for guitar hero!
HAVING amazed audiences at the recent Blackstairs Blues Festival with fellow legend Jim Finn, Gerry Quigley and his band will return to Enniscorthy for a special show at Holohan’s on Saturday night.
Having returned home to Ireland after 30 years of living in Australia, Quigley is now based in Cork City where he has formed the Irish line-up of his award-winning Blues/Rock and originals 5 piece band The Shinkickers. A spectacular series of shows followed in the UK, Australia and Ireland over the past couple of years and Gerry has now gained the status of guitar royalty and one of the country’s best kept secrets.
A master of anything with strings, Quigley puts on an adrenaline fuelled live show and gained quite a few more fans after his appearance at the Blackstairs Blues last month. It appears he liked the place so much that he couldn’t wait to get back and he’s looking forward to rocking Holohan’s on Saturday night. The show will kick off at 10 p.m. For more details, see www. festivalofstrings.com.
