Friday (14 JULY)

Paddy Smith Blues Band

Paddy Smith was a regular on stage at iconic Chicago club ‘The House of Blues’, before he succumbed to an addiction to alcohol. The Navan native had emigrated to the States in pursuit of a career as a harmonica player and due to his sheer talent was quickly catapulted to the forefront of the Chicago music scene. However his dependency on alcohol threatened to ruin everything he had worked so hard to achieve. A catalyst came in the form of tragedy, when Paddy’s daughter Ciara died aged just 17 and the musician decided to give up alcohol and turn his life around. Five years on, he is still sober and now helps other addicts face their demons. A short film following Smith’s life entitled ‘Let Those Blues In’ also received rave reviews. Catch Paddy and his 3 piece blues band at Heerys this Friday !

Saturday (15 July) Oatsie Jones

Oatsie Jones is a very talented soul singer from Brooklyn who has made Waterford her home for the last few years. She has built up a dedicated following at Heerys with her twice monthly residency and you are guaranteed to hear some great soul & pop classics from across the decades delivered by Oatsie and her band with style, heart and amazing vocals. Highly recommended to ease you into the early hours of Sunday morning !
