The White Horse Guitar Club are an 11 piece band born in the music venue, Upstairs at The White Horse, County Cork, Ireland. They interpret songs of the Americana/Irish Roots songbook in a truly impactful way – think Irish voice choir singing the songs of the deep Southern States, Appalachian mountains & bringing it all back home to the Emerald Isle!
Formed in early 2012, the band evolved from an open club environment into a fully-fledged musical touring group of 11 friends over the past 6 years. 11 guys drawn from widely varying backgrounds, bound by a common love of playing guitar and singing music that is deeply rooted in the fine tradition of songwriting that flourishes in the Southern states of America, particularly in Kentucky & Tennessee where the Scots/ Irish influence was and is strong. The group proudly interpret the songs of John Prine, Darrell Scott, Tim O’Brien, Buddy Miller, Townes Van Zandt, Willie Nelson and many more.
The White Horse Guitar club has performed all over Ireland & Europe in the last 7 years, selling out tours in France, Germany, Italy, Holland along with marquee nights on home soil.
All good stories are shaped by the twists and turns of the road and the adventure of The White Horse Guitar Club is very much still being written.
Keep your ears tuned and your hearts open.
