John O'Connell Live

2 months ago By Jamie Weston

The fantastic John O'Connell, Live at Volair Park!

Prescot Cables are proud to have the legendary John O'Connell playing live at The Cables Bar.

John O'Connell has had his name indelibly written in to the tapestry of Liverpool's music scene. Born and raised in the Everton area of the city, John's early influences were routed in acoustic, folk and classical guitar. Stefan Grossman; Bert Jansch; John Renbourn; and Martin Carthy all inspired John and ignited his passion for music

It was a young and high-spirited John O'Connell who responded to a tiny hand written advertisement, in Frank Hessy’s music store, which eventually lead to the formation of the legendary Liverpool band, Groundpig. From these somewhat modest beginnings Groundpig went on to dominate the city's music scene holding residence in many popular establishments, playing a variety of music from bluegrass, folk, country to pop and more contemporary genres. The success of Groundpig was staggering and today many revellers still reflect fondly on nights spent at the likes of the Scooner Inn, Daleys, Philharmonic Pub, Bier Keller, Flannigan’s, Rosie O’Gradys, Guinans and Kitty O'Shays.

Tickets are £12, please contact Mick Flaherty on 07532218807 for tickets
