Pilgrimage Presents The Delta Dogs Blues Band Image
This month we welcome back the magnificent Delta Dogs following their fantastic sellout show in December last.

This electric blue power trio need little or no introduction as they are one of the finest Blues bands in the Southeast (we’ll say even Ireland!!). They are regular attendees across many festivals and live venues and made their depot in Dublin last year at the brilliant Howth Roots and Blues Festival receiving rave reviews. Paul Byrne (chief organiser & In Tua Nua drummer) said “You took us Dubs by surprise. We weren’t expecting such a great show”.

We again expect a full house so don’t miss out on what should be another super night as we keep the blues alive in the Deise Delta. Advance tickets (€15).

Crow Black Chicken is a three-piece blues-rock band from Cork and Clonmel, Ireland and are composed of Christy O’Hanlon (vocals, guitar), Stephen McGrath (bass) and Gev Barrett (drums, vocals). Described as ‘The hardest working band in Ireland’, Crow Black Chicken has continued to build a following now known as the ‘Crow Black Chicken Army’.

Invited as guests to ‘Electric Picnic’ each and every year, their unique style of original music envelopes southern American blues-rock influence.

We were fortunate to have Crow Black Chicken at Pilgrimage Presents for a fantastic night of Deep South Blues in the Deep South of Ireland!
