Clonmel World Music proudly presents The Wiyos (New York, USA) at Raheen House Hotel, Clonmel on Thursday, September 26th.
The Wiyos are renowned as one of the most versatile and original bands on the US Roots Music circuit. With infectious exuberance and theatrical skill, they play a modern-day version of vintage string-band Jazz, Folk and Blues. The WIYOS live create a visual spectacle in the tradition of Vaudeville-esque performers.
The Wiyos 2009 album, Broken Bell Land, was in the top twenty of the AMA chart for fourteen Weeks. The Wiyos have spent over ten years touring extensively in the USA, Canada, France, Holland and the UK. In 2009 they were hand-picked by Bob Dylan as the opener on The Bob Dylan Tour, along with Willie Nelson and John Mellancamp.
Doors open at 8pm. The band will start promptly at 9pm. Tickets (€15) from Premier Music Centre Clonmel on 052 6129811, 086 3389619 and from 087 9107201.
