Following their Sold Out tour earlier this year, The White Horse Guitar Club will be back on the road again in September/October with their second tour this year, the ‘Wide River’ Irish Tour, and a new single ‘Cash on the Barrel Head’.
The band received huge accolades from the Irish music media-including Fiachna Ó’Braonáin, Tom Dunne, John Creedon and Lilian Smith with their version of the Townes Van Zandt classic, ‘If I Needed You’, and saw their YouTube figures rocketing to over half a million views. It wasn’t long before the good news reached the BBC 6 presenter Cerys Matthews, who featured the band on her popular Sunday radio show in March, describing them as ‘..taking Ireland, and the rest of the world by storm’.
Not only did The White Horse Guitar Club form a band, they forged close friendships with one another and strong connections with their audiences in Ireland and abroad. The band members come from all walks of life; one is a stonemason, another an engineer, a photographer, a teacher, but they all share a common bond in their passion for singing, playing and performing live.
