Back into the studio!

BC heads back into Wachusett Studio over the fall and winter to work on our next release planned for spring/summer 2016. We are wicked excited :)

St. Patrick's Day - Blackstone Cúil @ Fiddlers'

The biggest day of the year, for Hibernians all over the world. We're doing our part to bring the craic to ninety. We'll be at Fiddlers' Green in Worcester from 3 - 7pm, then enjoying Cait Sargent and her band, raising pints of Guinness all the while :)

2015 is looking good :)

BC is chest deep in a demo recording under the direction of the fantastic Roger Lavallee. If you haven't checked out Wachusett Recording yet, Mike Harmon has a great thing going there - super relaxed but all-business sound. We'll be looking for you we fill the calendar for 2015 :)

Good things coming!

The close of 2014 finds BC busy recording at the wonderful Wachusett Recording Studio in Princeton, MA and working with the very talented Roger Lavallee (Flock of Assholes, Peyote Radio Theatre, Curtain Society). While this is ostensibly a demo, we hope it will lead to a full fledged album. We're also working on a bunch of new material we hope to unveil in 2015. Hope you will keep checking in on our progress.

A fantastic High Season!

Blackstone Cúil thanks all our cúil friends and supporters for being a part of this Patrick's Day season with us. We have some time off coming, working on new material and other projects - keep you posted on our summer shows :)

March - 'Tis the Season for Blackstone Cúil

There are some great shows coming up in March for BC. The Tatnuck Grille, Patrick's Pub in RI, and of course Fiddlers' Green - check out our schedule!

Blackstone Cúil Returns!

BC will be working over the winter on recordings, but we will be gigging (sans Brendan for now). Stay tuned for more info on where we will be around St. Pat's Day.

Blackstone Cúil Taking a Break

There are only a few more opportunities to see Blackstone Cúil before we take an extended hiatus. Our friend and bandmate, Brendan Keenan, is finishing up his doctorate in Education at UMASS Amherst and it will require several months of focus, and his free time to complete. The band supports him one hundred percent in this endeavor. Brendan is a talented and valuable member of our group and we look forward to continuing with him once he graduates in the spring of 2014. BC will not be idle, however. Our goal during the interim is to begin the recording process and perhaps have something ready to release when we resume our playing schedule. Myra, Johnny, and Mike will also be playing in various formations over the next few months. We are grateful for everyone who has supported us, and ask that you come out once or twice more to make these last few shows memorable. The Blackstone Cúil website and our other cyber homes will be active with updates, so please keep checking in on us. See you soon, BC

Our first show of 2013!

Blackstone Cúil's first show of 2013 was up in Clinton, MA at the Old Timer's Tap Room & Restaurant. Because of the Patriots game, there were few in attendance, but that did not stop everyone from having a great time. We loved the room and the wonderful staff at Old Timer's, and we made some new friends. Can't wait to go back :)

Thanksgiving Eve with BC!

We are so excited to see everyone at Fiddler's Green on Wednesday night. They're opening the big room for us because our Cúil Mods (our friends and supporters - does that work?) have been packing the place. So let's do it! Lá altaithe shona dhuit.
