GIG NEWS: Crow Black Chicken play at Studio 5 Live @ Jam On Top in Keighley on Saturday 18th January 2020


Since forming in 2009, Crow Black Chicken have earned back-pats aplenty for their dirty southern blues sound. This power trio of Christy O Hanlon (Vocals, Guitar), Stephen McGrath (Bass) and Gev Barrett (Drums, Backing vocals) combine elements of folk, hard rock and the blues of bands like Gov’t Mule to create their greasy blues rock sound. Crow Black Chicken have supported ZZ Top at The Marquee in Cork, played Glastonbury twice and were picked in the top 5 blues albums by Classic Rock Blues Magazine

It doesn’t end there though and earlier this year they were voted the “best act” by the audience of the Introducing Stage at The Great British Rock & Blues Festival. Consequently they will be returning in 2020 for an appearance on the festival’s main stage. On this performance the review by Bluesdoodles said “Crow Black Chicken deliver foot stomping, mouth whooping music. With tall tales and carries-on of life on the road, CBC blew what was left of the roof off Skegness. It was a fabulous if too short a set from this fabulous live-wire trio”
