Clancy's Fish Pub Dec 8th

Written by Druidstone.

A great crowd attended Clancy's Fish Pub in Fremantle last night to see the second of the three-show series of farewell gigs for Gerry Quigley with his long-running band The Shinkickers. 

The Shinkickers first started playing at The Rosemount Hotel in 1991 where they started out as an acoustic five-piece playing blues mixed with celtic rock at the Sunday Session. For the past 21 years Gerry Quigley and his band The Shinkickers have captivated the audience and last night was no exception.

Gerry's Farewell to Australia

Written by Druidstone.

It is with a mixture of great joy and sadness that Gerry will soon live out his life-long dream and return home to Ireland at the beginning of 2013.  Following many successful years in the Dublin music scene Gerry relocated to Perth some 30 years ago to experience the Australian way of life. 

During his 30 years in Perth Gerry has lead many successful bands with his own unique style including The Raggle-Taggle-Gypsies, The Blarney Stones, The Shinkickers and many more.  Over the years Gerry has also helped his many dedicated guitar students to uncover their hidden talents and discover the joy of music.

Gerry's current long-running blues/rock band The Shinkickers played their farewell show on Sunday 26th August at The Carlisle Hotel after an impressive 21 years of amazing music.

Gerry will be playing his own farewell tour during December at some special venues in the Perth metro area, before he leaves for Ireland with his partner Sharon on New Year's Eve

Gerry's farewell shows will feature special guests including members of Gerry's original Shinkickers band along with a very special debut appearance by Gerry's newest band, Gerry Quigley & The Nomadic Druids.
