Go Wild in the West Americana Fest, Galway, 6-9 Sept. 2012
Thanks to Mario Marigo for drawing our attention to the Go Wild in the West Americana Fest, which begins today in Galway, and lasts at least till Sunday (6-9 Sept. 2012).
At present we have information only on shows held upstairs at the Crane Bar, but they're a fairly impressive series. The first (6 Sept.) is being given by the legendary Peter Rowan (right), starting at 21:00; the admission price of €15 (members €12.50) includes copy of CD.
All remaining Go Wild in the West shows in the Crane are free-admission, beginning at 21:30 on Friday with the Molly Hicks. Saturday 8 Sept. is a powerful old-time-music night with Frank Hall, Tim Rogers, Ben Keogh, Lena Ullman, Anna Falkenau, and Ivan Murray, beginning at 18:30. Mikey & the Scallywags end the Crane's Fest schedule on Sunday starting at 21:30. More information is on the Crane Bar website.
