MEET THE ACTS

The White Horse Guitar Club is an eleven piece guitar group which started out at The White Horse music venue in Ballincollig, interpreting songs of the Americana/Roots songbook. The band evolved from an open club environment into a fully-fledged musical touring group of friends over the past 5 years. A passionate bunch 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 is strong. The group have proudly interpreted the songs of John Prine, Darrell Scott, Tim O’Brien, Buddy Miller, Townes Van Zandt, Willie Nelson.

LORRAINE NASH

Saturday 21st August • Doors 7pm - Show 8pm. Ballinlough Park

With the independent release of her debut EP ‘Wildflower’ last year, multi-instrumentalist Lorraine Nash quickly became one of the most played female artists on Irish radio. However, it was with her follow up single Winter Sun that she really announced herself, with the track being a regular on the playlists of several national stations. Her live-streamed set at Cork Opera House in December led to the Kerry singer-songwriter signing with FIFA Records with whom she has released the current track, Sing With Her, the first from her impending debut album.
