STOCKTONS WING

CELEBRATE 40 YEARS 1977 TO 2017.

After a very successful run of gigs at The Temple Bar TradFest 2016, and a headline show at the Fleadh in Ennis, the band have decided to get back to play venues and festivals in 2017 to celebrate 40 years and perform from their vast and eclectic back catalogue of recordings.

Stockton’s Wing began their career in Ennis sometime in 1977 with Kieran Hanrahan on banjo, mandolin and harmonica, Paul Roche on Flute and whistle, Maurice Lennon on fiddle, Tommy Hayes on Bodhran, spoons and bones and Tony Callinan on guitar and vocals.  The name Stockton’s Wing came from a Bruce Springsteen song, “Backstreets” from the album “Born to Run”. “ Slow dancing on a moonlit street at Stockton’s Wing, where desperate lovers park to meet the last of the Duke Street Kings.”

In November 2003 Stockton’s Wing held their first reunion concert in their hometown of Ennis, Co. Clare, which was a huge success with over 1200 people packed into the West County Hotel.  In the words of the band’s producer PJ Curtis “what an extraordinary, amazing, mind-blowing concert the Wing delivered last night.  I’m still spinning from it.  It was TRIUMPHANT!  No other word for it.  Such an incredible turn out… and the music and the vibe, Ronnie Dress too who was pure magic as usual, made it a NIGTH TO REMEMBER!!!  It rates as one of the top gigs of the decade for me…”

Stockton’s Wing is planning shows for 2017 to celebrate forty years since their inception in Ennis back in 1977.

The line up for the shows will include Mike Hanrahan (vocals & guitar), Paul Roche (flute & tin whistle), Steve Cooney (guitar), Tommy Hayes (percussion) and they are joined by Clare musicians Tara Breen on fiddle, and Karol Lynch on banjo and mandolin.
