Is your Blackberry Smoke-in’?
Cool off before the Blackberry Smoke gig on Saturday 1st April in the Olympia with a cocktail and pre-show Early Bird.
Blackberry Smoke bring’s their American Southern rock/country rock sound all the way to Dublin from Atlanta, Georgia, USA With Charlie Starr (lead vocals, guitar), Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals), and Brandon Still (keyboards).
They’ve just released their fifth studio album “Like an Arrow” last October via their own record label, 3 Legged Records. The album landed at #1 on the US Billboard Country and Americana/Folk charts as well as the UK Rock and Independent Albums charts during release week. Past record labels include Southern Ground and Rounder Records.
BLACKBERRY SMOKE’s frontman/guitarist Charlie Starr is looking forward to the UK & Ireland run, telling us: “We always love to bring new music to crowds who really appreciate it! Some of our favourite moments on stage have come from touring all over Europe and we can’t wait to share ‘Like An Arrow’ with our friends and fans over there. It is a great mix of what we love to do best.” ‘Like an Arrow’ follows BLACKBERRY SMOKE’s hugely successful 2015 album, ‘Holding All the Roses’, which took the top spot on both the UK Rock Chart and the US Country Chart. The release features 12 new tracks and includes a guest appearance from THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND’s very own Gregg Allman.
