Horslips and Memories stars in Kilworth this Saturday
Fans of Irish supergroup Horslips and/or The Memories, are in for a treat this weekend when Johnny Fean and Stephen Travers combine to bring us 'The Journey' on Saturday night.
Johnny and Stephen have been friends ever since Rory Gallagher first introduced them in 1975 but it took twenty years before they finally played together professionally. Johnny is best known as the guitar-hero and lead vocalist from 'Horslips' while Stephen is best known as the iconic bass guitarist of the legendary 'Miami Showband'.
In recent years, both Horslips and The Miami accomplished hugely successful reunion tours that took them around Europe, The USA and Africa. While more tours and recordings are planned for Horslips, a Hollywood movie, based on Stephen’s life, is currently in pre-production and due for general release in 2015/2016.
The music of Fean and Travers has many roots and, as all are evident in their live performance, expect a wide-ranging mix of 60s hits, classic Rhythm n’ Blues, Irish traditional tunes, iconic Blues and a smattering of Horslips anthems thrown in for good measure.
This intimate show takes the audience on a journey back to the music that first inspired them, through the inevitable changes and, ultimately, to where they are today. Take the Journey with them, it’s the Trip of a lifetime!
