Please see the new Upcoming Gigs page for details of all forthcoming gigs at The Queens Head.
The return of Andy to QH is definitely a gig not to be missed. Andy White is a stunning musician and songsmith.
Check him out on;
...and then come and see him on Sat 2nd.
This is guaranteed to be a great night upstairs at The Queens Head. Doors open at 8pm.
Andy White carries a 12-string guitar under his arm and wears his particular brand of charm on his sleeve. With the political edge of Billy Bragg, the romance of David Gray and the Celtic lyricism of the Waterboys, Andy is a fully paid up 21st Century Troubadour(and that’s the title of his first book, recently
published by Lagan Press).
Belfastborn and raised, White has earned a global following for blending folk and pop stylings with a poet’s sensibility. Working with the great names of Irish music -Sinead O’Connor, Donal Lunny, Van Morrison -and writing with the likes of Peter Gabriel and Neil and Tim Finn, Andy has won Ireland’s top songwriting awards and toured the world many timesover.
"Delivering his wry glances of the world in a poetic spoken format, David Rovics reminds me (says Tim at 'Indie Bands Blog") a little of John Cooper Clarke and Benjamin Zephaniah, with his dry wit that rattles out of the speakers."
We are proud and pleased to announce that
Dave Rovics will be at The Queens Head on the 8th June 2013 -
make a note in your diary right now. Unmissable.
David Rovics grew up in a family of classical musicians in Wilton, Connecticut, and became a fan of populist regimes early on. By the early 90's he was a full-time busker in the Boston subways and by the mid-90's he was traveling the world as a professional flat-picking rabble-rouser. These days David lives in Portland, Oregon and tours regularly on four continents, playing for audiences large and small at cafes, pubs, universities, churches, union halls and protest rallies. He has shared the stage with a veritable who's who of the left in two dozen countries, and has had his music featured on Democracy Now!, BBC, Al-Jazeera and other networks. His essays are published regularly on CounterPunch and elsewhere, and the 200+ songs he makes available for free on the web have been downloaded more than a million times. Most importantly, he's really good. He will make you laugh, he will make you cry, he will make the revolution irresistible.
