Beside the seaside

The continuing tour experiences of Ferguson, Holmes, & Henry, received from Colin Henry:

I write this from an internet cafe in Clifden, Co. Galway, on a nice sunny morning. We had arrived after a long six-hour drive and then had to unload all the gear before grabbing a small bite to eat. Life on the road is not all luxury hotels and a large road crew. A little food and drink works wonders, however, and our gig at Foyle's Hotel [left] was a good one.

Foyle's is a family-run hotel and it is an easy place to play. Jason Foyle looks after us well. We met a couple at the gig who we noticed were singing along to all the Guy Clark and Rodney Crowell songs that we cover. As this is not usual we spoke to them, and it turned out that those two American songwriters were their favourites and they visited Nashville often... you never know who you are going to meet along the way.

Just two more gigs to go. Tonight we are doing a gig in Geraghty's in Westport for Uri Kohen, with a very short drive this time as Westport is only a small hop away... plenty of time for Janet and the kids to look at the shops!
