Crow Black Chicken
Clonmel, County Tipperary
Since forming in 2009, Crow Black Chicken have earned back-pats aplenty for their dirty southern blues sound. This power trio of Christy O Hanlon (Vocals, Guitar), Stephen McGrath (Bass) and Gev Barrett (Drums, Backing vocals) combine elements of folk,hard rock and the blues of bands like Gov't Mule to create their greasy no bullshit blues rock sound.
CBC gained their first big break by winning the All Ireland battle for Glastonbury in 2011 thanks to their EP "Organic" and their raw live show. Upon the release of debut album "Electric Soup" in 2012, the trio from Ireland's deep south have won the adoration of many playing major festivals and countless venues across Ireland.
2013 saw the band return to Glastonbury and travel to Texas to tour and record with country blues legend Ray Wylie Hubbard. 2014 sees CBC release their second album "Rumble Shake". They will be stopping off in Holland, Germany, Austria and Italy as well as embarking on a comprehensive All Ireland tour to support the record.
