TUESDAY 24 NOVEMBER
Jackson Cage are a 7 piece folk rock band with a sound that echo's the heyday of Laurel Canyon in the late 60's and early 70's. While growing up in Northern Ireland, these guys were captivated by the music of legends like Neil Young, Dylan, Jackson Browne, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, Fairport Convention and The Band. Inspired to write honest folk rock songs of their own, Jackson Cage have created a unique sound fusing Celtic Folk Rock with American Roots Rock music to bring a breath of fresh air to today's music scene.
‘Ten Gallon Hat & The Big Salute’ were formed in early 2008 and gained notoriety quickly in their hometown of Belfast Northern Ireland. The band consists of five members. Kris Telford provides lead vocals complemented by Eamonn Lynch on lead guitar, John McCourt on Bass guitar, Dean Irwin on percussion and Chris Blackwell on keys.

Ten Gallon Hat & The Big Salute's rich brand of country blues lends itself to a bygone era when music was a way of life and not just a fashion accessory.
