Last night we had a great session in the Railway Bar, including All-Ireland fiddlers, cousins Rosie Ferguson and Oonagh Devlin. Mick Quinn was on hand – and in great form – for the aul stories. We promised to get back to Bernard O’Hanlons for the Friday/Saturday night sessions and the Welcome Inn on Tuesday nights. But that clashes with Alfie Corr’s gig in the Corner House in Rostrevor.
Indeed, my latest icon Rosemary Brennan promised to play that venue a Friday night soon.
I’m looking forward to a night in – one of these weeks.
Anyway there were many Fairport Convention fans at the Fiddlers Green Festival. Which put me in mind of the late, great beautiful Sandy Denny.
Co-incidentally this autumn see the launch of a 19 CD package of all her recordings.
Why was the following omitted from that Top 500 we were speaking of ?
