19th April in Wynne's

It might have been called "A feast of forty songs" in Wynne's last Saturday night. If you like singing and talking about songs, that was the place to be.

The regular attendees kept up their usual high standards. Highlights included, Laurel Hill :
When war had oppressed every nation with horror
And Wellington ventured his life o'er the main

and Bogie's Bonnie Belle :
Now Bogie had a dochter, her name was Isabelle
She was the lily o' the valley an' the primrose o' the dell

Dick Gaughan is a singer who has recorded that last song, incidentally, and he's on tour in Ireland at the moment, with gigs in Monaghan on Thurs 24th April, Barrys in Grange on Friday 25th April and Matt Molloy's in Westport on Saturday the 26th.
