The Pogues plus Lost Bayou ramblers equal Poguetry.
John Wirt

When Spider Stacy and Cait O’Riordan from the Pogues meet the Lost Bayou Ramblers, they make Poguetry together.

The Pogues, of course, are the Anglo-Irish folk-punk band from London that featured Shane MacGowan and his great songwriting. Lost Bayou Ramblers are the powerfully adventuresome Cajun band that celebrated its 20th anniversary this year and won a Grammy award last year.

Stacy, a singer and tin whistle player, nicked Poguetry’s name from the Pogues’ 1986 EP, Poguetry in Motion. He and the Lost Bayou Ramblers debuted their musical hybrid in August 2015 at One Eyed Jacks in New Orleans. They’ve since performed together in Lafayette, Baton Rouge and, last August during the Ramblers’ 20th-anniversary tour, Brooklyn Bowl in New York City.

Adding even more Pogues to Poguetry, bassist and singer O’Riordan played her first shows with the project last December. The whole gang will be together again for shows at Tipitina’s in New Orleans on December 13 and The Pearl in Lafayette on December 14. “We could make it an annual tradition,” O’Riordan said from New York City, where she’s a regular performer at the Irish Arts Center.
