Fair City Grass in the Green, 13 July 2011

Thanks to Enda Donnelly, leader of FCG, who reports:

Thanks to brilliant sunshine, which helped to attract a large crowd to St Stephen's Green bandstand area where Fair City Grass played a 'tribute to Bill Monroe' at our lunchtime concert.

The crowd seemed to really enjoy themselves today [Wed. 13 July], but a remarkable feature were groups of children dancing in front of the bandstand.

Above photo, left to right: Graham (fiddle), Enda (mandolin/guitar), Tony (bass), Dave (guitar, sound system). As you can see from the photo [especially the closer view below], 'Big Mon' would surely not have approved of the headgear worn by our guitar player, Dave!

We had great fun today and are already looking forward to our next gig in the Green.

BIB editor's note: This is scheduled for Wed. 17 August (1.00-2.00 p.m.). For other lunchtime appearances in this venue by artists including the Bill Whelan Band and the Niall Toner Band, the full OPW Summer Music Festival 2011 schedule can be seen here.
