Blackstairs Rebel Band are BACK! Its a Good Friday Rebel Bash!
About this event
The Wexford Rebel Band is back at Liverpool Irish Centre this Good Friday. Doors open 7pm - Tickets £10 The band is made of Wexford and Carlow people. Kevin is from Wexford. Ollie was born a Wexford man and lived in Killanne originally—home of the famous Wexford and Rathnure hurling legend Nicky Rackard and the song Kelly The Boy From Killanne. He now lives just over the border in Carlow. The mountain range between us is called the Blackstairs Mountains and we play a lot of Rebel songs. Ollie stuck the two together and it gave a representation of where we are from and what we do—Blackstairs Rebel. Blackstairs Rebel play Irish folk, rebel, ballads and are slightly punk at times. They never stick to the setlist, anything could be thrown in at last minute, depending on the crowd and that’s what it’s all about, the people that come to the gigs. If they go home happy so do they.
