News from Gerry Fitzpatrick

Apologies to Gerry Fitzpatrick (left; photo from Pat Killalea's website) for being away at a time when he had three items to send in, but for the record here they are:

On Tuesday 10 May at 9.30 p.m. the series of Cabin Sessions resumed in Uncle Tom's Cabin, Dundrum, south Dublin, hosted by the McGrane Family with Con Butler, Gerry, and special guests Kevin Cray & Brian Dowling (Dundrum) and Nora & Helena, the ukulele duo from Spain. Admission was free.

On Friday 13 May at 8.30 p.m. the new band in which Gerry plays, Minnie & the Illywhackers, performed in Bewley's Cafe, Grafton St., Dublin. You can hear two new songs by them, 'That ain't right' and 'Make me yours', on Facebook.

Finally, Gerry can be seen on YouTube in a four-minute clip from the Shetland Folk Festival, playing dobro in a late-night jam with the Wilders and Pokey LaFarge & the South City Three, playing the Roy Acuff classic 'Night train to Memphis'.
