Daylight Wobblies at Crusoes

Come on down to Crusoes in Castlerock for Christmas Dinner and the very best of music at Crusoes featuring the fantastic Daylight Wobblies on Friday 11th December 2015 at 7.30pm

A high octane, mostly ‘unplugged’ jam session of country blues mixed with a dollop of soul and all served with funk-filled irreverence and originality from some of the North West’s top musicians featuring guitar, bass, drums, piano, organ, harmonica and mandolin from current members of the Mudskippers, Graffiti Limbo, the Willie Byrne Band, Stray and others. These guys don’t take themselves too seriously and who knows what could happen or who might turn up to play.

Anyone who has ever been to Dunfanaghy Jazz & Blues Festival will know Donald Craig, lead singer in many a band. Donald loves to jam and puts raw emotion into every song. He also plays harmonica, bongos and guitar. He also loves having friendly banter with the other band members.

Rory “St” Clements keeps it funky at the back on keyboards and organ. He doesn’t need any introduction as he is one of the finest keyboard players in the North West.

Pat Muldowney plays lead guitar and is one of the finest working guitar players in Ireland today.

The backbone of the groove on bass is delivered by the fabulous George Kelly.
