Saturday 27th June is the 30th Anniversary of Declan's death, and as his good friend Seamus was already booked, it seemed a excellent idea to gather Declan's family & friends to celebrate the anniversary.

There will be no floorspots as Colleen Burke & friends will be performing & reminiscing.

Seamus Gill

Seamus has a song for all occasions & has been performing in folk clubs and at festivals for more years than he cares to remember. He sings a variety of Irish, English, Scottish, Australian and South American songs, and has even been known to sing Beatles' songs in Irish. He shared a house with Declan Affley in Sydney during the 1970s, sharing his enthusiasm for Australian political songs and sometimes performing with him. He was co-writer with Denis Kevans of Across the Western Suburbs in 1973.

+ support Cornerbrook - fast paced and cranking tunes and songs from Ireland and Newfoundland from Bridie Burke (daughter of Declan Affley and Colleen Burke), Bridie's husband, Cory Clarke from Newfoundland, and Ben Stephenson.
