The Fingal Folk Club….?
What happens when you take some of Ireland finest trad musicians and music bands. Groups like Morning Dew and The Irish Travellers to name but a few. Bands that abroad can command massive fees and play to packed audiences and get them into an old school hall once per week simply for the love of the music…. Reminds me of something Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh said at the tradfest launch….
I’d mentioned the fingal folk club in a previous post. I brought my guitar down to play last night so I didn’t get as much video footage as I wanted… A great night ? An amazing night. All ages. In an old school in Ballyboughal that looked for just one evening like a wine bar with guest Irish musicians. Simply breathtaking. Free. Run by Ronnie Delaney and his band of merrymen. For free. He even made the sandwiches and it wouldn’t surprise me if he made the kettle that boiled the cup of coffee I got 😉
Don’t know if my video does it justice but…. Seeing is believing. Go there, soak it all in, bring the family and your instrument if you have one and enjoy.
The Fingal Folk Club has been established to promote the talents of songwriters, musicians, singers and story tellers across all age, gender and nationality in Fingal, North County Dublin.
