BBC Introducing’s “Ones to Watch”, local giants Little Bear will be supported by The Clameens and Kevin Brown at The Playhouse next Saturday, February 2.
The Playhouse Jammhouse is back for 2013, and is bigger than ever, rising to the City of Culture’s bid for ‘Joyous Celebration’ of local music.
Little Bear, aka Steven McCool, Mark O’Doherty, Ryan Griffiths and Conor Mason, formed just over a year ago and are already playing to sell out crowds.
After releasing “I’d Let You Win”, a preview to the upcoming E.P, Little Bear received fantastic reviews, including both “Flavour of the Month” and “Ones to Watch” on BBC Introducing.
James J Magill (BBC Across The Line) said “Simply put, they are a fantastic live band”.
“The grapevine in music is buzzing about this band,” says Jammhouse organizer, John Ross.
“Little Bear will be supported by The Clameens – a young band on the way up. Pulling their inspiration from the harmonies of The Police, the coolness of the Arctic Monkeys and the rawness of The Libertines, they have just recently been selected by Other Voices as part of the City of Culture 2013 celebrations.
“Also selected for Other Voices, Kevin Brown is possibly the most modest singer-songwriter from the town, however, simply one of the best. He is stated to be “mesmerising” with his incredible lyrics and envious guitar playing. A true musical treat.” John added.
“The Jammhouse has been busy. We’ve just recently been part of a three-part BBC documentary filmed live at The Jammhouse in December, following local Jammhouse artists through into 2013.
“The Jammhouse will also be providing live stages at this year’s massive Music City festival for City of Culture, and at the incredibly unique and magical Carnival of Colours festival in the summer.”
