The Myshall Fundraiser Cometh...

Thanks to Niall Toner for this news just posted today on his own blog:

The excitement is building 'round these parts as we approach the date for our first gig of 2013, the Myshall Sports Complex fundraiser at the Myshall Community Centre on Saturday 19 January. The local response has been nothing short of phenomenal, and at this point it looks like we will have a sell-out! There's going to be a lot of 'well I told you so' about the place, so if you have left it to the last minute to book, act now, and call Ashling Kavanagh at 086-9674241, or drop in to the Myshall post office and talk to Mary or Vincent about reserving your tickets.

Full credit must be given to the local Sports Complex Fundraising Committee, and the old adage about horses and camels certainly does not apply here. Saturday next will be a unique one-off chance to hear the superb original music of Dublin's Lofires, as well as to enjoy the repertoire of the Niall Toner Band, featuring the amazing Richard Gladney from St Mullins on the upright bass, and the sensational guitar and mandolin and vocal stylings of Clem O'Brien from Ballylynan in County Laois. Modesty forbids me from singing the praises of, or saying too much about, yours truly... but here's a nice photo of me with my trusty Gibson guitar taken by Fiaz Farrelly in Ballymoon castle on the Muine Beag road. Onwards and Upwards...

Have a look also at Niall's blog post of a week ago, reprinting a review of his Pinecastle album Onwards and upwards which had then just appeared on the Country Standard Time website as part of 'Five great bluegrass albums I forgot to review during 2012', written by Donald Teplesky of Canada.
