The Mulligan Brothers (USA) will feature at Raheen House Hotel in Clonmel on January 28th - Clonmel World Music returns for its seventh year of gigs this exciting four-piece band from Mobile, Alabama, and Baton Rouge, Louisiana USA.
The Mulligan Brothers are not actually brothers at all! The band members are: Ross Newell (lead vocals, guitar, and songwriting); Gram Rea (fiddle, mandolin, viola, harmonica and vocals); Ben Leininger (bass and vocals) and Greg DeLuca (drums and vocals). These Mulligan Brothers, related only by their music, are an extremely accomplished band and their music is a blend of Alt-Country, Blues, Folk and Americana that can compare favourably to that of the Lumineers, boosted by a hot fiddle. The bands lyrics are built on Newell’s poetic imagery and storytelling and is reminiscent of the song writing of Townes Van Zandt.
Doors for the gig will open at 8pm - the show begins at 9pm sharp. Tickets are available in Premier Music Centre Clonmel on 052 612 9811, from Gerry Lawless on 086 338 9619 and from Martha Beardmore on 087 910 7201.
