The Happy Cats (Powburn 2017)

A drop of the Irish, a spoonful of Country, a splash of Cajun and a twist of folk…

was back at Powburn on Saturday evening (17 June 2017). Almost one year to the date since The Happy Cats gave their their last sell-out performance at Breamish Hall.

Multi-talented line-up

Marty Craggs (lead vocals, saxophone, harmonica, flute, tin whistle, tambourine, bodhran), Les Dodd (guitar, vocals) and Lenny Brown (accordion, vocals) had the crowd pulsating with an exhilarating, high-energy performance from beginning to end.

Celtic sounds, Geordie and Irish folk, and some nostalgic ‘Lindisfarne’ classics had toes tapping, hands clapping and the crowd on their feet.

Simply stupendous!
