To prepare for the return of Clonakilty International Guitar Festival this September, CIGF are hosting two special events in June to whet the appetite and generally remind everyone of the life-changing magic of live music. The Yonder Boys in DeBarras & Shanley’s on June 3rd and Dog Tail Soup in Spillers Lane on June 12th will be a delicious foretaste of the mayhem of melody that we have planned for CIGF 22 which will take place from 9th-18th of September.

The Yonder Boys will foreshadow the musical trail of the Festival performing an acoustic set in DeBarras at 6pm followed by their full live set up in Shanley’s at 9pm. 


The Yonder Boys:

Berlin based trio Yonder Boys are an Americana band, who while performing on traditional folk instruments, show great depth in variety of influences they bring to the genre. Traditional old-time sound can be mixed with rock, latin, pop and psychedelic influences. The band features the singing duo of Jason Serious (USA -vocals, guitar) and David Stewart Ingleton (AUS- vocals, banjo) who have performed as support for Billy Bragg, The Wood Brothers, Timber Timbre, Other Lives, and Nathaniel Rateliff.  Joining them is multi-instrumentalist Tomás Peralta (CHL-vocals, mandolin, lap steel, banjo, bass and more).   The Yonder Boys come from different continents and all met and live in Germany. Hence the name of the band: all three have ventured far from their homes to perform and live in Europe.  Their self-titled debut EP came out in 2018 on Blue Whale Records, and their first LP “Acid Folk” was released on September 25, 2020.
