News from the Red Room

Thanks to Arnie and Sharon Loughrin of Cookstown, Co. Tyrone, whose Red Room is not only the premier house concert venue for bluegrass-related music in this island, but is also becoming a recruiting centre for other bluegrass events. After attending the Westport festival last weekend, Sharon writes:

We had six of our regular Red Roomers down for their first festival outside of Omagh and everyone had a great time. We've also got some going to Athy this year for the first time.

I'm attaching a YouTube link to our Viper Central gig [27 June]. It was a brilliant night and we had quite a few returning from last year's concert; no doubt the next time the band come they'll recognise the same faces again. Maybe you could mention the few remaining gigs; the Groomsport one is in a beautiful part of Northern Ireland and would make a great day out.

Happy to oblige; the remaining Viper Central shows in Ireland are

Thurs. 5th: Raff’s on the Corner, Skerries, Co. Dublin
Fri. 6th: Balor Arts Centre, Ballybofey, Co. Donegal
Sat. 7th: Eagle Wing Festival, Groomsport, Co. Down

Sharon adds that this coming Sunday (8 July) the Red Room will host the last concert scheduled for the trio of Gary Ferguson (USA), Janet Holmes, and Colin Henry. As usual, everyone is welcome to come on Sunday night. Sharon can be contacted by the usual 'phone number, 077 47120659, or by e-mail.
