Dive Into the Blue at JJ’s in Roscommon

This Saturday night (April 9th), Into the Blue will play JJ Harlow’s in Roscommon town. The band play a mix of acoustic and country-styled blues and feature keyboards, guitar and harmonica for an authentic sound.

  Members include Martin O’Hara on guitar and vocals, Terry Benson on keyboard and vocals and Eamonn Hatton on harmonica and vocals.

  Martin, a native of Edinburgh but now residing in the musical town of Knockcroghery, recently sat down for a quick Q and A with Dan Dooner.

Okay Martin tell us what makes the perfect night’s entertainment?

That’s easy! Good company, good music and a well-run, friendly pub.

Your perfect weekend getaway is…

It has to be an old European city, somewhere like Seville, for the food and music. A bit of flamenco, jazz or gypsy music would go down really well!

Into the Blue are allowed to plan their own dream gig, who’s the support act?

It has to be The Stones!

Recommend one piece of music or one classic album for the people of Roscommon…

The 1974 album ‘Sonny and Brownie’ by Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee.

What can visitors to JJ’s expect this Saturday night?

They will experience upbeat country blues played with soul.
