Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra(UK)

Doors 8 pm.
Band Onstage 9 pm

Rob Heron and the Tea Pad Orchestra are one of the hardest working bands in the UK roots circuit, with thousands of touring miles under their belts. They have earned themselves a sizeable fan base in the UK, Europe and beyond. Based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, they play their own brand of Western Swing, Blues, Gypsy Jazz and Country, or “North Eastern Swing” as they've coined it. The dynamic six-piece band play guitars, mandolin, accordion, double bass and drums.

They've had many RTE radio plays, as well as playing almost every important BBC live session going, and they have played most of the major UK festivals, selling out the Spiegeltent at Edinburgh Jazz festival, and the BBC Edinburgh fringe.
This band were so good when they played at Clonmel World Music last year, we had to get them back in 2016 !!

"That's one hot band right there!"

Thursday 05h May
Russell De Carle Band(Canada)

Doors 8 pm.
Band Onstage 9 pm

Legendary Canadian artist Russell De Carle famously fronted iconic Canadian country roots band Prairie Oyster, who racked up an impressive list of JUNO and Canadian Country Music Awards, gold and platinum selling records and Number 1 singles in the 1990’s. As a songwriter, he carried off two SOCAN Song of the Year accolades - once in 1994, for Prairie Oyster’s first number one single ‘Such A Lonely One’, and again in 2008 for ‘One Way Track’.
Golden-haired Russell delivers his rock ‘n’ roll in crowned-King crooner style as his monstrously talented sidekicks take virtuoso into a stratosphere that lies somewhere between JJ Cale and the very best Gyspy Jazz you ever heard.
Virtuoso musicians Steve Briggs and Denis Keldie on accordian, guitar and harmony vocals make up the rest of the band for this gig. There’s a luxuriously laid back rockabilly edge to the fluent mix of blues, jazz and R&B-tinged western swing that this trio perform.

California Feetwarmers(USA)
Doors 8 pm.
Band Onstage 9pm

It is  big coup to get a band of this size and stature to play in Clonmel, and we can’t wait !
This is an 8 piece “Big-Band” from Los Angeles and it is a joy to behold. Fun-lovin’ masters of ragtime, Dixieland blues and early swing, The California Feetwarmers have a depth of character that sets them apart from others who have followed that throwback path to New Orleans, Circa 1920.
Their hugely-entertaining and boisterous on-stage antics are solidly underpinned by playing that is as close to the source as it can be.
On their recording debut, captured on their home patch in Los Angeles, they dusted down crusty old classics from the‘20s and ‘30s, re-visiting material from the likes of The Blue Ridge Playboys, Scott Joplin, The Memphis Jugband and Emile Grimshaw’s Rag Pickers.

This is the band that Grammy Award-winning Keb’ Mo’ sought out to provide an air of authenticity when he recorded his 2014-issued album, BluesAmericana.
