It is a big coup to get this band to come to play music in Clonmel. The Foghorn Stringband are an old-time string band from PortlandOregon, United States. They are the shining gold standard for American Stringband Music. Foghorn Stringband features the intertwining harmonies of founding members, Stephen "Sammy" Lind, Caleb Klauder along with powerhouse vocalists, Reeb Willms and Nadine Landry, all of whom bring a wealth of songs, instruments and traditions making them a festival favorite from coast to coast and around the globe. Performing live, these multi- instrumentalists gather around a single microphone in the middle of the stage, expertly balancing their sound on the fly, and creating the rarest of music: songs that are at once wildly virtuosic and intimately hand-crafted. When it comes to faithful recreations of old time string band music you’re hard pressed to find anyone doing it better than The Foghorn Stringband.

Thu 01st June
Jason James Band (USA)

Venue: Bakers Bar Clonmel

Doors 8 pm.

Band Onstage 9pm


The Jason James band is a 5 piece  band from Austin Texas, and Clonmel is one of only 2 Irish dates on their debut European tour, to promote the band’s new self-titled album.

Jason James' self-titled debut introduces a charismatic young artist whose effortless mastery of his chosen style serves as a deeply compelling vehicle for his vibrant creative spirit. The talented Texan writes rousing honky-tonk anthems, heart-tugging ballads and smart, sly-humored country-rock tunes that echo the vintage classics that are his touchstones, and sings them with a level of emotional urgency that makes it clear that he means every word. 
This is a classy 5 piece band, with Jason on acoustic guitar/vocals, Kevin Skrla- steel guitar , Matt Ford- Electric Guitar , Sean McNulty- Bass, and Vinny Ambersoni- Drums"A lot of people come up to me at shows and say 'I never liked country, but I like you,'" James notes. "I always say 'You're just not listening to the right country.'"
