Matt Molloy’s Yard Bar, Nov 13, 8pm
Join singer-songwriter and guitar player Derek McGowan for the launch of his new album, ‘Rusty Goldmine’, in Matt Molloy’s on Wednesday, November 13. The album is the Dublin-born blues/rock musician’s second – his first, ‘Rainlight’, was released, back in 2015.
Living in Westport since 1984, Derek has been a constant presence in the local music scene for many years, first as a member of the lively rock and blues band the Piston Slappers with Josie Joyce and Dave Fallon, and latterly with another trio, Hats, alongside Gerry Creen and David Dee Moore.
Like his debut ‘Rainlight’, ‘Rusty Goldmine’ features McGowan’s self-penned work – a rich musical vein, sure to yield melodious gold. For more about this gifted guitarist, and to hear a sample of his songs, visit dmcgmusic.com.
Gig starts at 8pm; admission free.
