The White Horse Guitar Club play the atmospheric setting of Cork City Gaol, Sunday’s Well on Thursday 24th November to celebrate the launch of a new EP, along with very special guests – internationally renowned concert pianist David Syme and The Carrigtwohill Gospel Choir.
The story of The White Horse Guitar club is one based around music and friendship. The bond of those two things has drawn a group of like-minded souls together and the shared experience of singing, playing and performing is a long burning fuel that keeps a bright fire lit.
Formed in early 2012, the band evolved from an open club environment into a fully fledged musical touring group of 11 friends in that relatively short space of time. The music that they play is deeply rooted in the fine tradition of songwriting that flourishes in the southern states of America, particularly in Kentucky and Tennessee, where the Scots/Irish influence was strong. Their repertoire includes the songs of John Prine, Darrell Scott, Tim O’Brien, Buddy Miller, Townes Van Zandt, Willie Nelson and more.
The WHGC has performed all over Ireland and beyond in the last 3 years, in concert settings and cosy pub corners, as street musicians and as festival favorites.
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. Keep your ears tuned and your heart open.
