The Watery Hill Boys
Old Time Bluegrass from the banks of the Boyne.
Hailing from Ireland’s east coast, The Watery Hill Boys; Jim MacArdle and Dònal Black, are an old timey bluegrass outfit with a growing following across Europe. Their music hails from, and is inspired by, bygone times. By rejuvenating the music of these prolific periods the happy go lucky trio shine a light of objectivity on the current zeitgeist and the contrast between the experiences of our forefathers and our own.
This video was shot in Tì Chairbre (Carberry’s Pub). Sitting in the docklands of the river Boyne in the port town of Drogheda, Carberry’s has provided a hub for traditional Irish music for more than 150 years. The pub is as persistent and timeless as the music that wafts from it’s unassuming threshold week after week, year after year, and is considered one of Ireland’s last remaining sanctuaries of traditional, old time and international music.
After 4 months in studio; 1 month mixing/mastering and almost 3 years of prickin’ about, The Watery Hill Boys have produced their finest album to date! The CD titled “Somebody’s Been Usin’ That Thing” is their second studio album and contains 14 tracks.
