Black Bear Saloon to headline The Harp Ice Cold Big Gig

The Harp Ice Cold Big Gig will be rocking the Spring and Airbrake, Belfast once again on 28th May – this month to the sounds of up-and-coming local acts Black Bear Saloon, The Cahier Collection and The Vires.

Headliners Black Bear Saloon, whose members hail from Larne and Portadown, will be playing their heavy rock that amazed at the Glasgowbury festival in Draperstown last year, alongside some of their astounding new releases.
They will be supported by The Cahier Collection – an explosive and experimental rock act from Carrickfergus who released their first single, The Leading Role, in March.
Rounding off the bill are a recent breakthrough band who are led by one of the most unique vocal talents on the scene, The Vires. The band, from Belfast, Lurgan and Bangor, secured a record deal with local label Audio Ill in 2009 following a province wide competition.
Sarah Douglas, Harp Marketing Manager, said: “Northern Ireland is a hotbed for the finest up-and-coming music acts and Harp Ice Cold is proudly waving the flag for them. The Harp Ice Cold Big Gig brings together those fantastic live acts with a great social occasion – and will continue to do so each month in 2010.”
