It's been said 'the grass is always greener on the other side' well when it comes to local musical talent its green on this side and it is lush.
AER Music Club, a monthly music event held in Molly Browns in Newtownards, continues to bring some of the best local music to the Ards Peninsula.
This months club night continues on Thursday 24th April with some fine musicians, the night will be headlined by Wookalily is a female led Americana folk band with roots in bluegrass and country. They turf out timeless songs from the bogs of Northern Ireland to the bayous of Louisiana. Having been swamped in both musical traditions they've managed to create a transatlantic sound that is authentic yet quirky. Despite their reckless ways they've managed to create a unique and distinctive sound that's all heart. Their style, sometimes referred to among the lilys as chillbilly roots, has an old-timey feel with a young-timey appeal.
Also on the bill are Dundonald based husband and wife duo Chasing Perpetua, their superb harmonies, intelligent songwriting and soaring vocals demand to be listened to, you won't regret it!
Kicking of the night will be Cup O’Joe a family band made up of two brothers, Benjamin, Reuben and their sister 15 year old Tabitha, who play an energetic style of Bluegrass & Gypsy Jazz music.
AER Music Club was launched in January this year, the club is in memory of Amy Ellen Reid, who passed away from cancer in February 2013, the 20 year old daughter of founder Mark who said 'we are excited to again bring some of the best local artists to Newtownards, the lineup for April is a cracker, we got bluegrass, gypsy jazz, acoustic and country. I can't wait for this one'.
As well as promoting local music AER is raising money for two local cancer charities CLIC Sargent and 'Friends' of the Cancer Centre.
