Gig of The Week – Mick O’Toole @ The Rolleston, 21st February.

10898065_874182165967926_9216773324815699506_nFollowing in the footsteps of such bands as The Pogues, Flogging Molly and The Greenland Whalefishers (no? Just me then!) comes Mick O’Toole a five-piece Celtic, cider punk party. Hailing from Calne (the same town that gave us The Boys From County Hell), theirs is a sound that channels the spirit of every drunken wedding, every lock-in, every campfire gathering, Fleadh festival, Ceilidh and party there has ever been.

 

Combining Banjo, accordion and mandolins with the more standard modern rock band instrumentation, they may sound like another boozy bar band but there is a spark at the heart of the music that suggests that someday they will write their very own Sally MacLennane or Fairytale of New York and the rest, as they say, will be history. Catch them at The Rolleston 21st February whilst they are still a local phenomenon.
