East of Monroe back on native sod
Hello from back in the USA! We're all recovering from jet lag, so we're just now getting around to sharing the final installment of our Bluegrass Today tour travelogue. Here's an excerpt...
When we wrote in last, we were making our way to Westport, a lovely town on Ireland’s west coast. We’d been hearing about Matt Molloy’s Pub, owned by the flute player with Ireland’s legendary Chieftains, for so long, and we were thrilled to play a show there! We stayed in the apartment upstairs from the pub, and had a fantastic time playing for a full house in their “yard bar.” We were honored that Mr. Molloy himself came to watch our performance and visit with us. Here’s a video of one of Gary Alan Ferguson’s original tunes from Matt Molloy’s...
Matt Molloy’s Pub is famous for hosting traditional Irish music every night of the week, and a jam followed our performance. A few of us played and sang some tunes with the local musicians, and we had so much fun that it was hard going to bed and leaving for the next gig!
