Blackbird and Crow hail from the farthest northern corner of Co Donegal, Ireland. The band formed three years ago and are comprised of Maighread Ni Ghrasta (Vocals) and Stephen Doohan (Guitar/Bouzouki /Stomp).
They are possibly best described musically as a folk blues duo and when onstage together, the Blackbird and the Crow leave nothing behind in the dressing room. The show is a blatant, honest, in your face expression of musical passion. The songs are a timeline of their own life events, delivered with the same honesty and intensity that it took to write them.
They released their single ‘I Gave Away My Home’ and album ‘SHOCK SHATTER CONVINCE’ in early 2017 and have been going from strength to strength on the Irish music scene having played major festivals including Electric Picnic and Longitude Festival. This band is quickly making a name for themselves as one of the most hardworking and driven bands on the Irish scene and are looking forward to an exciting 2018 with plans to release of their second album.
