St Patrick's Night with The Pogue Traders
The Pogue Traders + The County Affair
Entry Requirements: 18+ after 7pm
Who better than The Pogue Traders, the finest Pogues tribute band in the land, to see in St Patrick’s Day 2022!
Formed back in 2007, The Pogue Traders have become established as the UK’s leading Pogues tribute band. With a comprehensive set of Pogues numbers that are very faithful to the studio arrangements, The Pogue Traders play to sell-out major-venue audiences in London, Glasgow, Birmingham, and Nottingham, and to crowded pubs all over the country, leaving behind thousands of satisfied (and hung-over) gig-goers.
“The Best Pogues tribute band I’ve ever seen” – Andrew Ranken
Support is from The County Affair.
It's not The Pogue Traders who describe themselves as the UK's best Pogues tribute band - that's what The Pogues' own drummer Andrew Ranken said about us; and we are delighted to be backed by The Pogues who recently posted: 'London, Go see these blokes!'
'I'll come straight to the point: The Pogue Traders are absolutely fantastic. Seriously, if you ever see these guys and leave without an ear-to-ear grin spread across your chops and a song in your heart, stop and check your pulse - you may very well be dead.'
Neil Skinner, Watford Observer
The County Affair
(performing as a duo as special guests of The Pogue Traders - Half Moon Putney, 17-3-22)
Americana outfit The County Affair had a breakthrough year in 2021, releasing their debut album ‘Off the Grid’ swiftly followed by a showcase gig at Camden’s Green Note and then a 20-date national UK tour across November supporting Ward Thomas.
Recorded at Abbey Road Studios in 2020 and described as ‘a stellar debut’, the album’s a statement of intent from veteran musicians who’ve spent decades charting country music’s evolution into Americana since gigging as teenagers in the 70s and touring the US in the 80s.
As venues and festivals open up again in 2022, live shows will again be the focus for the duo. Inspired and energised by the reaction of audiences and critics to their performances on tour, the pair are eager to get back on the road and have crafted a show that blends their live musicianship (guitars, accordion, vocals) with elements from the album’s soundscape.
