The White Horse Guitar Club, renowned for their soulful blend of Americana and roots music infused with an Irish heartbeat, continues to captivate audiences worldwide. Their rendition of Townes Van Zandt’s classic, “If I Needed You,” has amassed over 1.5 million views on YouTube, catching the attention of BBC 6 presenter Cerys Matthews, who featured them on her popular Sunday radio show, praising them as “…taking Ireland, and the rest of the world by storm.”

Favorites on Irish airwaves, the band’s music is regularly played by renowned presenters Fiachna Ó Braonáin, John Creedon, and Tom Dunne. The band’s journey is not just about music; it’s about camaraderie, friendship, and joy. As member Joe Carey states, “The band is very much based around camaraderie, friendship, and joy, sometimes a missing facet of bands. It’s one we hold very dear. Musically, we could be considered a choral band; voices are central to what we do, all 11 of us sing in unison, harmony, and melody. The fact that there are also 11 guitars adds to the unique sound and interpretation of the songs that we carry. On paper, it shouldn’t work, but it does.”

The White Horse Guitar Club is a diverse group, comprising individuals from various walks of life – from a stonemason to an engineer, a photographer to a teacher. Yet, they all share a common passion for singing, playing, and performing live, forging strong connections with their audiences in Ireland and beyond.

The White Horse Guitar Club’s music resonates deeply with a growing fanbase, reflecting their belief in the power of music to unite and inspire change. On the back of 2 sold out national tours the band are really looking forward to playing at All together Now festival. Last year was the bands first year at the festival and they proved to be a festival favourite.

“There is an authenticity to The White Horse Guitar Club’s performance in which the musicians allow themselves to take all the risks while delivering a very professional concert. This has the great effect of making the experience a very personal one for everyone in attendance. Good for the heart and soul – the music knows no borders.” Michael D. Higgins, Uachtarán na hÉireann, President of Ireland
