Returning as a six-piece band following their performance at the Cruthú Arts Festival, Blues Confidential enjoyed yet another success last month, playing to a full house at the Little Blue Room.

Returning as a six-piece band following their performance at the Cruthú Arts Festival, Blues Confidential enjoyed yet another success last month, playing to a full house at the Little Blue Room.

First opening during the Cruthú Festival, the Little Blue Room, located at the back of John Browne’s pub, proved to be a unique and intimate setting for all kinds of entertainment; from various genres of music to theatre and even literature.

Speaking to the Leader, one of the organisers behind the Little Blue Room, Shane Crossan, said, “It’s going really good, it’s really exciting.

“We had Blues Confidential supported by young local musician Graham Feeney.”

This Saturday, November 22, the Little Blue Room will open its doors to the public once again, and music fans are in for a real treat.

Saturday night’s gig will be headlined by Belfast-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Hannah McPhillimy. Hannah is a graduate of Queen’s School of Music and the ‘Scratch My Progress’ programme at the Oh Yeah Centre, and her live shows are nothing short of stunning. Hannah’s set at the Little Blue Room is definitely one not to be missed.

Shane adds that Hannah will be supported on the night by a “super talented” local musician, Shane Kennedy, who many may know from Denniston’s Music Shop in Longford town.

An excellent evening of entertainment is promised for just €5, with doors opening at 9.45pm, before the music begins at 10pm.

Revealing some exciting plans for the future, Shane adds that there are two more gigs planned for the venue before Christmas, one of which will see Tom Hanway and friends take to the stage.

The first of ‘The Little Blue Room Sessions’ recordings from the gigs, will also hit screens around Christmas time, according to Shane. The show will be available to watch on CableComm, BSkyB and online.
