Weekend at Colfer's, Carrig-on Bannow

Woodbine report with regret that they will not after all be playing at Colfer's, Carrig-on-Bannow, Co. Wexford, tomorrow (Sunday 29 Jan.). John Murphy, who has given hospitality to all forms of Americana over the years and has run an annual Bluegrass, Country, and Americana weekend there since 2005, has been obliged to cancel arrangements this year with all bands except for Sarah Savoy & the Francadians (see photo), a highly regarded Cajun band of French musicians led by Louisiana-born Sarah, who belongs to one of the most distinguished families in Cajun music. The band have been touring in Ireland (see their tour schedule). They will be playing the Strule Arts Centre in Omagh, Co. Tyrone, tonight, and their show in Colfer's at 8.00 p.m. tomorrow is the last in the tour.
