DMP at Number 39

Paddy Garrigan & The Stroller Priests

Thursday 22nd February 2018 9pm

Tonight we are very pleased to present for the first time at Number 39 the audacious Paddy Garrigan and The Stroller Priests.

This three piece band from Ulverston and Lancaster features songwriter Paddy on guitar, mandolin, banjo, harmonium and piano with his Stroller Priests who are Ben McCabe on drums, French horn and backing vocals and Darren Leadsom on bass and backing vocals.

The band will be treating us to some boozy Alternative Folk/Rock with rousing songs which tell of Sea Monsters, James Joyce, Dad's Army and the Universe Blues. These worthy topics are lubricated by a musical accompaniment of runaway grunge, barrelling rock 'n' roll, mandolin dub, melodious folk and epic guitar heroics!

"Bonkers but amiable three piece from the far north of England take two years plus to produce a debut album which has some trouser-bursting brass and lots of chutzpah. Mandolin ska folk psychedelia doesn't even make a halfway decent description. Off the wall and up the alley". - fRoots Magazine
