The White Horse Guitar Club ‘Wide River’ Irish Tour
Following their Sold Out tour earlier this year, The White Horse Guitar Club will be back on the road
again in September/October with their second tour this year, the ‘Wide River’ Irish Tour, and a new
single ‘Cash on the Barrel Head’.
The band received huge accolades from the Irish music media-including Fiachna Ó’Braonáin, Tom
Dunne, John Creedon and Lilian Smith with their version of the Townes Van Zandt classic, ‘If I
needed You’, and saw their YouTube figures rocketing to over half a million views.
It wasn’t long before the good news reached the BBC 6 presenter Cerys Matthews, who featured the
band on her popular Sunday radio show in March, describing them as
‘..taking Ireland, and the rest of the world by storm’.
‘Cash on the Barrel Head’ was a big hit for The Louvin Brothers in the 1950’s and has been covered
many times including versions by Alison Krauss, Dolly Parton and Gram Parsons.

Joe Philpott: ‘We feel we are carriers of song. Digging up treasures, some of which are 100 years old
but feel as new as the day they were written. From the field recordings of Alan Lomax to the
Appalachian mountains, every song has its own journey and we try to tell that story and evoke the
feeling within the song through our own unique interpretations’.
Not only did The White Horse Guitar Club form a band, they forged close friendships with one another
and strong connections with their audiences in Ireland and abroad.
Joe Carey: ‘The band is very much based around camaraderie, friendship and joy, sometimes a
missing facet of bands, it’s one we hold very dear. Musically we would have been considered a choral
band, voices are central to what we do, all 11 of us sing in unison, harmony and melody’.

The band members come from all walks of life; one is a stonemason, another an engineer, a
photographer, a teacher, but they all share a common bond in their passion for singing, playing and
performing live.
