& THE NOMADIC DRUIDS
& THE SHINKICKERS
^ Upstairs ^
The Nomadic Druids’ debut album Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow is an instrumental concept album, a story told with music in seven captivating chapters. The Nomadic Druids experience will take you on a musical journey. A journey which at times could take you away to another world.
The music will tell you a story, taking you on a ride through ebbs and flows of breathtaking melodies and augmented chords combined with just the right amount of those amazing guitar riffs. The instrumentation and dynamics of the band’s performance is simply superb.
Each of The Nomadic Druids has added their own piece of magic to the spell, an astounding collaboration of like-minded virtuosos and the resulting sound is superb and complements the Gerry Quigley sound perfectly.
The signature sound of Composer and Dublin-born Blues/Rock guitarist Gerry Quigley also brings with it a distinct Celtic feel. Playing his ecclectic collection of instruments including a selection of electric, acoustic and classical guitars, mandolin and a unique double-neck mandola/bouzouki, The Nomadic Druids will keep you mesmerised with a true entertainment showcase.
Some would call it Progressive Rock, with a Celtic twist.
“Amazing album, I hope you sell a million copies at least!” – Smiley Bolger, Dublin
“Some tasty guitar pieces in there!” – Eric Bell, (ex-Thin Lizzy)
“I really like it” – Pat James, (on air) Radio Nova Dublin
Supporting The Nomadic Druids are Gerry Quigley & The Shinkickers who have been captivating audiences in Australia for the past 24 years with their signature style of classic blues/rock and good dose of their own spine-tingling originals. Dublin’s own Gerry Quigley will mesmerise you with not one, but eight guitars and things with strings including a unique double-neck mandola/bouzouki played Quigley rock style of course!
One night, two great bands. Prepare to be captivated!
