Gig : Kirk Smithhart – Wrexham – 01 June
Posted on: Sunday, May 13, 2007
THE KIRK SMITHHART BAND
Friday June 1st at The Goulbourne, Borras Park, Wrexham
The Kirk Smithhart Band are making a short stopover after their European tour and it will be their 1st and only appearance in the area. They are from Memphis and Kirk wonThe Albert King award for best unsigned blues guitarist for the USA in 1999. He is backed by brothers Rome and Doug McMinn (Mojo Buford’s drummer on the ’05 tour) and guesting with the band will be Tommy Allen taking time off between dates with Otis Taylor on the Gary Moore tour.
It promises to be an immense night of blues and the news is that it is free although if possible we’d like you to make a donation (£5 if possible) to help cover the lads gig fees.
The Goulbourne is easy to find if you remember the way to the rugby club. On the Wrexham link road off the Gresford roundabout, you turn right on the roundabout one before the one for the rugby club (It’s signed Borras I think) and the Goulbourne is about half mile on the left set back off the road.
