Clonmel World Music proudly presents The Revelers (USA) at the Raheen House Hotel in Clonmel on Thursday, March 27th.
Clonmel World Music is delighted to present an amazing six-piece band direct from Lafayette Louisiana who are over in Europe for the first time for a Scottish mini-tour and a short six-date Irish tour.
The Revelers music combines Swamp-Pop, Cajun, Country, Blues and Zydeco with a dose of contemporary rock and R&B - pure roots music straight from Southwest Louisiana.
The band contains founding members of the Red Stick Ramblers and The Pine Leaf Boys - unquestionably the two groups at the vanguard of the Louisiana cultural renaissance.
As individuals they are each in high demand having performed and recorded with Natalie Merchant, Linda Ronstadt, The Yvette Landry Band, Balfa Toujours, Mamadou Diabate, Cedric Watson, and Tim O’Brien to name a few.
As a group they play with a sense of empathy and depth that can only be fostered after years of making music together. Simply put, The Revelers are poised to be the next Louisiana super group.
All band members contribute vocals as will be heard from their excellent lead singing and tremendous harmonies, with Daniel Coolik on fiddle and electric guitars, Glenn Fields on drums and vocals, Blake Miller plays accordion, fiddle and acoustic guitar with Chas Justus on electric and acoustic guitars, Eric Frey on bass and Chris Millar on Saxophone.
Doors for the The Revelers gig will open at 8pm. There will be no support act and the band will start at 9pm sharp.
