The Comeback Tour!

Well hardly, that's a bit grand, but Graeme and I will be playing this Saturday evening at the Carrowdore Mission Hall monthly "Gospel Rally" at 7pm - if you're available feel free to drop in. You'll be made very welcome and there'll be plenty o tay and buns afterwards, including Ulster's National Dish! We'll be playing five or six songs and hymns.

The following Saturday night, 11th October we're playing at a special event at Bangor Abbey - a deeply historic location of massive Ulster-Scots significance. You can click here to see what'll be happening on the night. Hilary took the photos, and my good friend Gifford Savage did the write-up! Gifford and I worked together on the reprint of the Abbey's historical book a few years ago. When Gifford asked us to play at this, there was no way I could turn it down!

Musically, it'll be similar to what we did before as the Low Country Boys, but simpler in that it'll be pretty close to the "brother duet" style of the 20s and 30s - two voices, mandolin and guitar. We're still debating over the track listing, but there's plenty to choose from!
