With such a great selection of sport to choose from in the coming weeks, one venue that will be keep a check on them all is the Castle Bar, but they have one major coup for the lovers of live music and that is the fact that they have managed to secure the services of top blues band Shanco to ring in the New Year.

Such is the enthusiastic vibe coming from the band at the moment they are being asked to perform all over the county and the Castle have managed to beat all others to get them to play on one of the most important nights of the year.

The band have been together for the last number of months and made their debut in the Castle Bar before making their Sunday night residency in Courtneys something that legends are built around and it his short time they have already built up a loyal following.

Included in their line up is ex Thin Az Lizzy and Harbour Blues Band singer and bassist John Conlon, ex Bagatelle drummer Wally McConville, a man recognised as one of the most exceptional young guitarists in Ireland Paul Sherry and guitarist and singer Grainne Duffy who have come together to perform a mixture of their own material and a subtly mix of rhythm and blues and some of the older classic number from the likes of the Rolling Stones and The Pretenders.



Although they have released their eponymously titled debut album which is a mixture of covers and their own songs and has become a big seller at all their gigs, it is their live work that has had the crowds flocking to see them and their visit to the Castle on New Years Eve should see no change to this format. Tickets are now on sale for this fantastic night.
