We're very excited about the bank holiday but let's start with the build up the singer songwriter competition. In The Willows duo Dee Ryan and David Green do battle against Wexford's Cat Black so expect soft vocals, building crescendos against powerful lyrics and steady bass lines.
Battle of bands Fridays has another unusual mix Waterford's Turning in Circles vs Rusty Fixtures.
Turning in Circles have a grunge tool doom kinda sound heavy but even if hard rock is not your thing you'll see find yourself drawn in.
Rusty Fixtures hail from New Ross. Fiery vocals almost reggae ska rock all rolled into one. Should make a good contest! I'll spend little time about Saturday 5th explaining what's on as it's the return of the professor Mr Pat Macmanus and his band fresh from touring Europe with the Scorpions. He makes his summer return to us - can't wait for all the Mamas Boys and Pat's classics support on the night by our own rockers Tasc. They've been locked away rattling out a few rock classics so showcase their Murphy's bar debut. Blues rock seems to be the theme enter Crowblack Chicken Clomnel's guitar welding, bass bopping drums crashing 3 piece they created a big stir here and national as I said before come see what the fuss is about. Support by Mother Mooch was originally formed in the summer of 2009 as an acoustic duo, sporadically jamming and writing songs, after some line up changes the current incarnation was in place by February 2011 and the music had developed towards stoner/desert rock with grunge, garage, punk and psychedelic influences. After honing the sound, the band have recently performed their first gig (October 2011) and are now preparing to build on that response and play as many gigs as possible with the intention of recording and releasing a debut ep by late spring 2012. And when all is said and done we wrap it with a jam session for yours truly bday aftermath hoedown hootenanny or just a pint on bank holiday Monday

Not so GR8 G8With world attention on Fermanagh as the meeting place of the latest G8 Summit it is no wonder that locals are basking in the reflected spotlight. We have all been told, if we haven't already experienced at first hand, the beauty of the location. We know about the exclusiveness of the hotels that the various leaders are going to be staying as well as some of their security detail. We know about the menus from which they will be choosing from. There is little about summit meeting that the …
