    Ottawa, ON, CA | 8:00pm

    Black and Blue Thursdays @ The Black Irish PUB proudly presenting the capital's grand daddy of the shuffle Brian Downey on drums, Blue String Guitar Slinger Clint Everson on the guitars and Maren Molthan on bass. Expect some down'n dirty singing from all three of them. We are stoked to watch how these three amazing artists and multitalented "music royalty" (Nancy Redd-Shelton) may work their concern over the eternal 12 bars - how refreshing that there should be Blues loving musicians making a home in this city, committed to the style and feel of the original performers, hard working and guaranteed to move ya. Do drop in often, the formation promises to have special guests sit in for your continued enjoyment. TheBlackIrishPub.com is located in the Eastview Shopping Center (2 ac parking lot off Rideau St, just across the river), a really cozy neighborhood pub with lovely regulars and great vibe. the kitchen serves delicious dishes that clearly are a very tasty step up from the usual pub fare all the while being perfectly affordable. There is no cover charge, however your donation is appreciated / pay as u can. we invite you to ask for cd's - if you buy off the stage all the profits go to the performer. more info on the band @ http://www.briandowney.ca/ http://www.reverbnation.com/clinteverson http://www.reverbnation.com/t7g

Brian Downey doesn't just "bang" the drums, "making love" would be more like it ... he drills holes in his cymbals, thus they ring but the exact time he wants them to, and playing anybody ...See Full Bio
