THE RATTLIN CITY RAMBLERS AT THE SUNDAY SIT DOWN

Venue
Blue Smoke
Time
04:00 pm

Blue Smoke welcomes you to ‘The Sunday Sit Down Get Down’ our very own folk club event. We present local luminaries and national touring artist of the finest calibre, this is a first rate opportunity to catch a matinee concert with family and friends.

It’s always free, it always starts at 4pm and the music is always infinitely admirable.

On Sunday the 4th December our feature artists are The Rattlin’ City Ramblers.

They have a gutbucket, string band sound that has developed from their love of old Irish, American and Australasian folk, country, blues and rock. Traditional music plays a large part in their sound but they are anything but folk purists, adding modern pop songs to their repertoire and mixing musical styles whenever it suits them.

The band members are: Ian Costello (mandolin, guitar, banjo), Adam Gallagher (vocals, bass, guitar) and Nick Jackman (vocals, harmonica, guitar, drums). They have played in some of the most well-known Christchurch folk bands over the years, including The Black Velvet Band, Whiskey Hounds, The Finnegans and Bush Fire. Nick Jackman also performs regularly as a one-man-band, playing several instruments at the same time, a skill he brings to the Rattlin’ City Ramblers.

All three band members have known each other for a long time. Their music reflects years of them playing together, both professionally and just for the hell of it.
