Introducing Ireland’s definitive Blues Big Band ‘The Catfish Blues Orchestra’. Comprised of some of the finest blues talents based in Ireland today, the band consists of two guitars, bass, drums, vocals and harmonica, as well as a brass section.
Driven by a love for authentic blues music, the group draw on influences ranging from the early blues masters of the delta such as Robert Johnson and Sonny Boy Williamson, to the electric Chicago and Texas blues masters like Muddy Waters and Freddie King, up to British blues invasion guitar gods – Eric Clapton, Peter Green and contemporary influences such as Robben Ford and Derek Trucks. The Orchestra draw on these influences to create their own rich and soulful blend of Rhythm and Blues.
