Downtown Blues Event

4th Anniversary of DTB with One Horse Pony

4th Anniversary of DTB with One Horse Pony

On this special occasion we've got:

One Horse Pony - All the way from Cork, a band that needs no introduction among Blues dancers since they've played for us several times in the past. But for those who have never danced to their music, this is your opportunity and you'll understand why we keep them coming back!  It's a special energy and bond that these guys create with dancers. They'll bring original songs, cheery and mellow, to keep us dancing all night long.

Jack & Jill - Last year we had one and it was a success, so we're repeating it. We'll have some special prizes too. Registrations on the day at the day at the entrance.

Cake & Champagne - As a tradition to any anniversary and we're no exception.

DJ Yari - Playing for us when the band isn't, the one and only, Maria from the dark side.

Know the band

One Horse Pony

Chart toppers and roots virtuosi One Horse Pony are veterans of Electric Picnic, the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival, the Kilkenny Roots Festival, Indiependence and more, they’ve shared stages with musical royalty such as The Blind Boys of Alabama on their travels.

The last 18 months have brought multiple television appearances, a critically acclaimed European tour, a show-stopping performance on the main stage at Townlands Carnival and a raucous debut headlining the 7 Hills Blues Festival.

Celebrating their own original roots music, One Horse Pony showcases acoustic virtuosity and potent vocal harmonies allied to brain-melting high-octane mayhem, for live shows which have to be seen (and felt!) to be believed. Check them out on iTunes, where their single “Staring Blues” hit No. 1 and you can download a copy of their latest album, “Blue When I Go”.
