Sunday 30th September Dublin Cobblestones Old Time Session McHughs - 2 till 5pm
Up from Dublin for the weekend are regulars of the Cobblestones Pub Saturday Old Time session, Dermie Diamond on fiddle, with “Bill and Ben” (Bill Whelan and Ben Keogh of the Rough Deal String Band) on banjo and guitar respectively.
Ragged ‘n’ Rough are a twin-fiddle-driven old time outfit featuring the local outlaws Berni Stocks & Geordie McAdam, with a solid rhythm section of Eugene Kelly on Guitar, Ian Carmichael on banjo and Wilson Davies on bass. Members of the band have been coming together over the years to play the traditional Old Time American fiddle tunes and songs that they love, and out of that the band just kind of happened. This is a genuine, organically grown, local product!
Expect surprise appearances from some of the other wonderful Old Time musicians who are in Belfast for Open House. This will draw to a (rowdy) close a whole day of Old Time music in McHugh’s Bar. Tonight will rock. We salute you. And then you can all go home and sleep.
