McBlues are four experienced musicians exploring the jazz and blues roots of traditional Celtic Music and Songs, seriously? McBlues best described as jazzed up, bluesy, traditional Celtic music. These four multi-instrumentalists bring over 200 years of musical experience to the stage. They play a highly entertaining mix of ballads, jigs and reels on bagpipes, mandolin, fiddles, harp, harmonica and guitar. A truly unique band, playing the tartan blues like you've never heard them before.
