The Black Irish Band will release it’s new 25th CD album, “Give us All Yer Whiskey” (Songs of hard-rock miners & hard-luck sailors) on Saturday, November 14th. The release party will be at the City Hotel in Columbia State Park, 8PM and cover is $10.00.   

This is a very special album release due to the core of the music being from the roots of the local Gold Mining region. Many of the songs, original as well as traditional, take the world to the front door of our 1800s History of California & Nevada.  The album is very up-beat and progressive for folk/Americana with some Pub-rock in there for good measure. 

The CD will also be released on Pandora and I-Heart radio for everyone to listen to it also. So check it out!
