Serving Up The Blues

In late 2008, Crossroads added a new dimension to their musical calling card when they unveiled their Blues Session at the Strand Bar in Strandhill. Focusing on blues numbers from traditional artists like Robert Johnson and Willie Dixon along with songs from modern greats like Eric Clapton and Robert Cray.

The boys will re-introduce their blues session in the Harp Tavern on Quay Street in Sligo beginning August 18th and continue every Tuesday night. Come along and have a listen!

The regular Blues session also includes a splattering of classic rock and R&B. Although the boys include a couple of blues numbers in their regular program, they plan to keep the two programs separate.
