RACKHOUSE PILFER, the barnstorming bluegrass bandits from Sligo, return to Galway to play Monroe’s Backstage Bar this Sunday.
This year has been a good one for the sextet. In March they released their debut album Love and Havoc, earning plaudits from Hot Press, which said the band have “an authenticity that wouldn’t sound out of place on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry”. A fine example of their sound is 'Bright Lights', the first single from Love and Havoc.The album featured a guest performance from Harold Bradley, now 88, who played guitar on hit records by Elvis, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, and Jerry Lee Lewis.
Rackhouse Pilfer were also invited to perform alongside John Carter-Cash, son of Johnny Cash, and Raelyn Nelson, granddaughter of Willie Nelson, in Nashville.
Doors open at 11.30pm. Admission is €10. See www.monroes.ie
