Last week the NTB had the good fortune to work two wonderful Gigs, first at Crocanoir, in County Tipperary, and then on Saturday night last in the Wexford Arts Centre. Both of these venues have to rank in the Top Five of smaller Irish venues, and I highly recommend both to anyone with an interest in live Music. Croanoir is usually held in a converted outhouse on the farm of John and Monika Birmingham, near Mullinahone. On the evening, the Weather was so good, they decided to move the Stage outdoors, and the Gig turned into a Mini-Festival, just like Slane Castle ! We had a ball, and as always, the hospitality was just wonderful. Wexford Arts Centre had no option but to stay indoors, and a goodly crowd left the Beaches, and made for a very appreciative listening audience, who then bought CDs and T-Shirts in great quantities ...........Bless them all. Patrick Hogan took this shot of Me, Dick and Clem, looking serious ! Looking forward to a return visit to these two great venues ...
