Shows in the North in the very near future

Thanks again to Sharon Loughrin of the Red Room, Cookstown, Co. Tyrone, for news of:

... a couple of good gigs that have appeared on my Facebook newsfeed this evening. Janet Dowd [left] will be playing in Scarva Tearooms this coming Sunday afternoon [22 Mar.] from 2.00 p.m. I've never been there but I have walked the canal path from Poyntzpass to Scarva; it's a lovely spot and would be all the nicer for some music from Janet and her band while tucking into coffee and scones! It would be a lovely afternoon out for anyone in that area.

Harpers Hollow Bluegrass Band [below] are playing in the Four Trees bar in Moira, Co. Down. They will be in the upstairs bar from 8.30 on Fri. 27 March, and on Sat. 28 March they begin upstairs at 8.30 before moving to the downstairs bar from 10.00 to late. Harpers Hollow are a bluegrass/old-time outfit comprising Derek Norwood, Derek Lockhart, William Duddy, and Colin Allen. Having heard all these musicians play separately at various sessions over the past few years, I would certainly recomend a trip out to hear them in their present formation.

Good to see plenty happening out there, hopefully they'll get the support,

Sharon doesn't mention that the majestic KingBlue will be playing in the Red Room on Sat. 21 Mar., as the show is already sold out.
