CC SMUGGLERS have announced a headline show Upstairs @ Whelans on September 3rd! Tickets €13 will go on sale this Friday at 9am from Ticketmaster.
The natural born, ‘self-made’ showmen CC Smugglers have worked their way up from young street performers to playing some of the biggest festivals and venues in the UK and Europe.
Fronted by charismatic front-man ‘with a song running off of every page’ – Richie Prynne engages with an audience within seconds of stepping up and conducts the show with ‘infectious joy’.
Together the sextet of multi-instrumentalists performs with a genuine and now almost infamous chemistry. The band has become renowned for producing fresh and unafraid blends of old time/world-folk styles and instrumentation; hitting home the unique and contemporary British song writing with skill, charisma and passion.
For CC Smugglers creating a show designed to captivate and thrill an audience is a skill they have well honed. These slick and exciting performances have allowed them to rocket through the ranks in the live scene and build a reputation for real music, proper showmanship and damn good times.
‘Great Live. Just brilliant.’ – Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
‘Besides the infectious joy they exude while playing, their understanding of the music is so deep as to make it sound it sound effortless’ – Alex Petropoulos, Songlines Magazine
‘Hugely engaging live performance’ – Paul Sexton, the Sunday Times
‘The best live band on the scene at the moment, and I wouldn’t say it unless I genuinely thought it’ – Cerys Matthews, BBC Radio 6
