Lloyd Philipsand the Oil Skins from Portland Oregan!

Following in the footsteps of the Pine Hill Haints, our newest serving of Roots, Americana and Old time music comes in the form of
Lloyd Phillips and the Oil Skins.

“These noble songs penned and experienced by brave Lloyd Phillips and the Oil Skins might be the tunes that Otis Campbell and Ernest T. Bass should’ve written, had they been schooled lovingly by Tom Waits, Neil Young, and Paul Westerberg: thrown rocks toward church windows, bourbon bottles with half-shots left in the bottom, and crying women. Freight trains.”

At half 9 on Saturday 18 in Mc Girls  Bar Ballinamore Co Leitim 🙂

Brothers Niall, (Guitar & Vocals) and Patrick Kellegher, (Harmonica & Vocals), enlisted the talents of Boyle native Johnny McGlynn (Banjo & Slide Guitar) to complete a trio united by an idea of returning an honesty and intensity to playing high-energy music on acoustic instruments. Next Friday the 22 of October at 10pm.

Skazz & Turf Picnic gig on Friday 13th August

Skazz – Skallywag

Skazz – Summertime


This six piece are the embodiment of the ska movement starting out as a swing and jazz outfit and converting in early 2007 to pure ska vibes. In keeping with their jazz roots, Skazz have chosen the original Jamaican scene Ska of the 1960’s – when Caribbean mento and calypso first met American jazz and rhythm and blues. Fans of the 2 Tone sound of the late 1970’s will feel at home on this dance floor with the added bonus of an education in pre-reggae/rocksteady tempos and cross rhythms. Having already shared stages with the likes of The Skatalites, Prince Buster, The Pioneers, Syramip, Dennis Alcapone, Winston Francis and Delroy Williams…
