The Whelans enjoying another lovely Friday evening at the Cobblestone pub.
I galloped down to the Cobblestone tonight to hear my favorite set of the week. The Friday 7:30-9:30 group includes singers as well as instrumentalists. This week the Whelans were there, so I had friends to chat with.
It’s bright and cheery in the musicians corner during the evening this time of year… the sun stays up in Dublin until ten pm. And it raises before five am! We are so far north.
…all in one place.
Fergus sang two fabulous songs while I was there.
And we even a guest singers tonight.
Along with the wonderful musicians…
…who grace the pub on Friday nights.
And keep us tapping along.
These days, the sun doesn’t set until ten pm…
…on nearby Manor Street in Stoneybatter.
Setting up to film, the room was filled to capacity with Mulligan relations.
Cinematographers and musicians filled the tiny musicians’ corner at the Cobblestone pub last week. They were filming a documentary about traditional Irish music, focusing on the influence of the Travelers (the ethnic group that’s had the roughest time here in Ireland). I’ll try to keep you posted as to when and where the documentary will air.
And then the filming commenced.
