Clonmel World Music has been bringing great quality Americana, Roots Bluegrass and Folk Bands to Raheen House Hotel, Clonmel since 2010. It is run by local music enthusiasts and volunteers. The gigs take place in the intimate function room of the Hotel, in a comfortable cafe-style setting.

The next gig takes place on Thursday 26th April.This time its the turn of a lively 4-piece band called Woody Pines, based in New Orleans USA, who are on a 4-week UK/Ireland tour Woody Pines delivers an intoxicating blend of rural and urban stringband, country blues, ragtime and jugband music.Live, the group infuses a hundred years of American music into their performance - from early 20th century acoustic blues to tasty Rock-a-billy.They’ll even drop some hip-hop vibes in the mix. It’s a fast-paced, swinging, high-energy show.

The Band is Zack Pozebanchuck on Upright Bass, Lyon Graulty on Clarinet, Lead Guitar and Vocal Harmonies, Mike Gray on Drums, with Woody on vocals, Guitar an Harmonica.

Their song “Counting Alligators” puts listeners straight into the backseat of a convertible with Doctor John, whipping around the back roads of the Delta on a crisp, autumn night. Other songs by the band, such as “Nashville” and “Delta Bound”, evoke thoughts of a Southern gossip or a post-Civil War America where the blues weren’t just a style of music, but a way of life.”We pick and choose the best sounding music in the world,” says Pines, “and sing our own words and put our hearts and souls into that backdrop”
