Celts, Kilts and Croatians
with Jim Lockhart

Saturday, November 9, 2019 - 11:45am to 12:45pm

In partnership with Hinterland.

How the Clash met the Clancy Brothers and gave birth to the Pogues, and what strange Fairy Tales of New York followed. Jim Lockhart -- the legendary Horslips Celtic-rock multi-instrumental frontman, long-time music producer, and all-round good egg, offers his take on the development of a raucous and legendary corner of recent Irish popular music history.
