Water Tower Bucket Boys at the Red/Green Room, 7 Sept.

Thanks to Sharon Loughrin, chatelaine of the Red Room, Cookstown, Co. Tyrone, who writes:

I'm sending you a few photos from our Water Tower Bucket Boys concert which I hope you'll enjoy. We had our best night yet, numbers-wise - 52 people (not counting ourselves and the band) - and as you can see [above] we had to move out to the Green Room; I'm beginning to think a change of paint colour may be necessary...

We really appreciate all of the visitors who support the concerts, but we were especially pleased to welcome Tommy and Joyce, Mohill festival organisers (and of course Lilly, Tommy's lovely dog!) I had given Kenny from the band a Mohill T-shirt while we did some laundry, and when Tommy arrived he was wearing a Bucket Boys T-shirt, so it was the perfect photo opportunity!

The boys performed a lot of material from their new EP Where the crow don't fly, and we've had great feedback from the audience, many of whom were returning after the previous house concert the band played here back in March. I've also attached a pic [below] of Katie playing 'Old Joe Clarke' with the boys after the gig, a tune she learnt at the Omagh Festival Kids Camp.

Sharon adds that there are many nice photos from last weekend's Appalachian & Bluegrass Music Festival on the Ulster American Folk Park Facebook Page - and you don't need to be on Facebook yourself in order to view them.
