Straight Ahead "in your face Scottish Blues Band
With no change from a combined 160 years on the
Blues /Rock Highway, Barrelhouse come on stage
looking like Scottish "Lifers" out on parole to
attend a Gangland funeral.
It's only when they hit their traditional, contemporary and self composed Blues stride that you realise that they are only now peaking after hellraising in clubs throughout the U.K., France, Spain, Switzerland, Denmark, Germany and (most intriguingly) North Africa.
With a unique combination of Grit, Guts and
Savoir Faire, Barrelhouse are "Elegantly Battered
Rockers", their music documenting their chequered
intertwined experiences and their genuine affinity
for the Blues.
