Daddy Long Legs Return To Preach Their Own Blues-Punk Gospel in Belfast This June

Daddy-Long-LegsDaddy Long Legs, New York City’s most blueswailing trio, have been spreading their gospel throughout the globe since the release of their debut album ‘EVIL EYE ON YOU’ (2012 Norton Records).

Now the boys return to Belfast – playing Voodoo on Friday 10th June 2016.

Hear the thump and bash of drummer/ percussionist Josh Styles, searing slide and rhythm from multi-talented guitarist Murat Akturk, and the signature howling harmonica of Daddy Long Legs himself.

Long time fans of Northern Irish punk, the band have records from The Defects and SLF in their vinyl collection. They’ve performed onstage with The Sonics, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Alabama Shakes, The Jim Jones Revue, and backed Chicago legend T. Valentine on his album, ‘The Vampire’.DDL

A recent tour of Spain heralded them winners of Best Live Performance of the Year – a true honor! For fans of Howlin’ Wolf, Captain Beefheart, Little Walter, and Dr. Feelgood.

Daddy Long Legs’ new album, ‘BLOOD FROM A STONE’ is out now through Norton Records – you too shall be converted!
