Keeping it country at the Rockies Club, Cork, 24-6 Oct.

Thanks to Roger Ryan of the Country Music Association of Ireland for a reminder of news that the BIB first published on 1 October - during the annual Cork Guinness Jazz Festival over the coming October bank holiday weekend (24-27 Oct.), the Rockies Club (Blackrock National Hurling Club) on Church Road, Blackrock, Cork, will present a strong programme of country music.

On Friday 24 Oct. Hank Wedel and his band, who are among the leading attractions on the local scene, will be playing there. Hank has released a new two-track CD ('So close'/'That was the one'), with both tracks getting extensive airplay on national and local radio. On Saturday 25 Oct. the well known local musician Paul Murphy will be joined by many guest performers; and on Sunday night (26 Oct.) the Demolition String Band (USA) from the USA will be the stars (see the separate BIB posts on the DSB). 'Kountry Karaoke' will also be featured on Sunday night, and it is hoped that many people will take part.

Roger (who is also in charge of the Rockies' PR) adds that the Club's music programme for later in the year includes Rackhouse Pilfer on Saturday 29 November and Two Time Polka on Saturday 20 December. He adds: 'As usual, admission is free and the craic is mighty.'
