A specially filmed live set from Blackbird & Crow streaming through the RCC’s social media channels at 8pm on the 29th December. Donegal duo Blackbird & Crow are probably best described musically as Celtic folk blues with a punk attitude. A two-piece band hailing from the wilds of Ireland’s Co.Donegal.
Maighread Ni Ghrasta (vocals) and Stephen Doohan (Guitar/Bouzouki /Stomp Box) met in 2014 and discovered a shared interest in American blues, folk, rock and country, all of which they fuse together with a distinct Irish folk twist to create a unique and powerful sound unlike anything else out there.
Honest, raw, and poetic in equal measures, Blackbird and Crow will get under your skin, and you’ll be all the better for it
