Don't expect and evening of  purely Celtic rock or trad Irish music  like the The Motherfolkers and  An Seisiun used to play -   The Moonshine Mothers will be playing Americana  - including  rock, blues, bluegrass and hillbilly music, althought hey may be  re-working some of the old Motherfolkers material but  taking it in a  new direction.
Pete will be joined by  joined by two ex-Motherfolkers/An Seisiun members -  Greg the master bassist, and Graham "lightnin' fingers" Jones on acoustic and electric axes. These guys are also  ex members of Skynny Lennard.  

Rockin'  vocals and  cool guitar will be supplied by the magnificent Al Dominey. Expect to see Pete on mandolin as usual,  but also providing some tasty licks  on the  slide guitar 

Not to be missed! 

The Moonshine Mothers appear  on Wednesday 22nd February  at the RMA Tavern, Cromwell Rd., Eastney. Entry is FREE- the fun starts at around 8.30 p.m
