This will be Hobnail's first time back at the Boathouse since their full house show in 2019 as part of their 25th Anniversary tour. They are now a 5 piece, boasting a fuller sound since the addition of their old mate Murray Costello on bass guitar. They'll be playing some new songs, and have dusted off a couple of older songs for the long term fans. There might even be a Fleetwood Mac cover in there....
