Description

Belfast’s own weekly live Blues club. The Chris Taplin Band transport us from Belfast to the Mississippi Delta and beyond, maintaining Rab McCullough’s legacy in establishing the longest running blues residency in the city.

The Chris Taplin Band - inspired by the music of Muddy Waters, SRV, Howlin’ Wolf, Albert King, Hendrix and more, this Belfast four-piece have assumed the Thursday night residency of the much-loved and greatly missed Rab Mccullough. They couldn’t replace those nights of course, but these guys were regulars on Thursday nights and joined him on stage many times.

Admission Free.
