Sutherland Folk club is pleased to present Kieran Halpin direct from Ireland in time for St Patricks Day.
The superlatives keep flying for this remarkably talented artist from Ireland. A must see and highly recommended, Kieran has recorded 11 albums since 1979. But it is live on stage where Kieran really makes his mark. Passionate, powerful, intimate and intense, he is impossble to ignore with a gravely voice and where he lives every song. Possessing a sharp, sardonic wit he is a man who really connects with his audience. "Halpin's material is startling for it's sheer originality, strong enough to mark him down as one of the very finest writers to have emerged in recent years".-Melody Maker. It should be an awesome night.
Crazy Creek - Also on the bill will be Crazy Creek - bluegrass music at it's finest.
Floor spots welcome.
Extra special concert for March on Thursday 27th. Reg Mombassa and brother Peter "Dog Trumpet" and the Dead Letter Chorus - amazing choir.
Join us for this one off extravaganza. Tickets $15, pensioners $10.
There will be no session night in January but there will be one on the 4th Thursday in February (28th). All welcome, friendly and fun jam session any standard any type of entertainment. Please come along and have a go. No pressure! No charge!
