There was a crowd of revellers already in Dodd's when the main group of the singers arrived on St. Patrick's Day. It had been a good day all over Boyle and the parents and children were still enjoying it.
We thought we mightn't get singing at all but the musicians who were already there when we came in were having a good session and we joined in.
Later than usual, when the crowds cleared a bit, we started and had a good lot of singing after all. Eugene had a second bash at the Son in Americay to start the singing and he could be heard this time. There were a couple of new faces who gave us Caledonia and MacAlpines Fusilliers. Spencer the Rover and the Two Sisters were side-by-side.
Phil Callery, who was our guest during Boyle Arts Festival is launching a new album in Dublin on the 22 March. The Voice Squad, of which he makes up one third, are back on the circuit so watch out for both the solo Phil and the trio Voice Squad, at a venue near you this year!
