Barry speaks eloquently about The Cons and confirms why Charles no longer appears with them to answer the questions many fans keep asking. Great read !

AND more gigs !!!!

"HORSLIPS shows are more than just mere concerts these days they're social reunions for the band's pan-generational fanbase and the reactivated Celtic rock pioneers themselves.
It's just nice to meet the extended Horslips family at this point it's a way of keeping in touch," enthuses Co Tyrone-born bassist Barry Devlin of the imminent Horslips Con 2019 at the CQAF Marquee at Custom House Square in Belfast on May 11 and 12.
Horslips Con 2019 is very much a mutual celebration of the band and their fans. It began last year as a one-off event at The Black Box in Belfast organised by Horslips devotee Rob Aiken, but when that hugely successful show attracted fans from right across the globe, clearly it demanded a sequel.
"We always had a tradition of having Horslips parties whenever there was a new album, and all the albums from the 70s are now going through their 40th anniversaries," explains Devlin.
"So last year, Rob did a party for The Man Who Built America normally the parties were a bit shambolic, but Rob being Rob decided he'd make it a proper gig.
"Originally, we were going to let The Tearaways and The Pox Men play the party and then join them for a few songs at the end, but we actually did a full set as well as a Q&A with Nuala McKeever, which was hilarious."
With this having piqued the interest of the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival, now the Con is on again for 2019, expanded to two nights (the first already sold-out) and featuring guest live turns from Horslips affiliates including ex-Mamas Boys man Pat McManus ("a championship fiddle player in the Fermanagh-style", notes Devlin) and all-star bluesmen Paddy Goodwin and The Holy Ghosts on Sunday."
Tickets for the Sunday gig available from https://cqaf.ticketsolve.com/shows/873604688

Getting close now. Looking forward to this. Under pressure from Taff55 to get my photos from the last CON up on FB. I'll be back home from hols on Sunday so might get a chance on Bank Holiday Monday. They are not really worth waiting for, my battery ran out (too many Belfast Black Taxi Tour mural photos & Crumlin Jail Tour photos) so for some of the gig my camera was sitting plugged into a wall socket while I + 1, RVR & Ronnie who posts occasionally enjoyed the gig.
Still not sure (and looking unlikely to) if I can make the second night. I need to be in work at 7.00 on Monday morning.
Hope to see some of you there.
John

no pressure DD, sure it was only 6 months ago haha. Think that is an issue with a lot of people for Sunday, i fit had been the previous weekend its a bank holiday on the Monday but CQAF had to fit us in amongst an amazing array of events.

Saturday is going to be awesome, sold out in 10 days and Pat McManus Band supporting. See you there.
