Shaping up for a night with the stars with Shannonside/Northern sound in Cavan.
This autumn sees a welcome return of the legendary Ray Lynam and the Hillbillies for a reunion concert tour of Ireland. Definitely not to be missed if you’re a fan of class country music.
A sorry but all too familiar sight in Ireland these days.
The Hazel hotel in Monasterevan, one of our best known dancing venues, closed and boarded up.
I remember several years ago when teaching a young Bass student, introducing him to the “Magic of the single note” when playing in 3/4 time. He didn’t get it!
He couldn’t understand that one note played with the right dynamic, length and feel was far better for the waltz than many and that it would swing, anyone who dances will know exactly what I mean.
I tried to tell him that most of the time less is more and the role of the Bassist is to provide the foundation and swing in the song…..he still didn’t get it!
