Irish Internet Radio and TV from Dublin, Ireland.

Last night our Bay St. George Folk Arts Council held its monthly folk night. Last night it was held at Clancey's Pub in Stephenville. Our host group was "The Landsmen" (Ed Keeping, George Keeping and Blaine Priddle), a group the hails from Corner Brook, Newfoundland singing Irish and Newfoundland music. They were awesome. We also had an open mic set in between with several performers: Smokin' and his band (Joe Wiseman, Gerald Butler, Ryan Froude and Waylon Wiseman, SeaWind (Esther Oosterbaan, Aldona O'Keefe and Betty Rumbolt) and Mike and I (Nuttin' Fancy), played as well (Ryan Froude played bass for us). Last night we played three songs; Sixteen for Awhile by a Newfoundland group called Celtic Connection, When Irish Girls Grow up written by Tom Russell and Mike sang Candlelight and Wine a song by Dermot O'Reilly. We sort of did the semi-Punters version on that one. All in all it was a great night for our Folk arts council. We had giveaways as the night was sponsored by Molsons. I won a case of beer....yipee.....
