THE FINGAL Folk Club is back in business later this month after a summer break and the balladeers and folkies at the club are raring to go and ready to fill St Patrick's Hall in Ballyboughal with some of the brilliant music every Friday night.
The popular club returns to the hall in Ballyboughal on Friday, September 28 at 8pm and will take over the venue every Friday night from now until next May. It is the second season for the fledgling club who are hoping its popularity will spread right across the county and that fans of folk music will make Ballyboughal their favourite place to go on a Friday night. The Fingal Folk Club was established to promote the talents of songwriters, musicians, singers and story tellers across all age, gender and nationality in Fingal. ' The Morning Dew' one of Fingal's finest ballad and folk song duos host the sessions and extend an open invitation to musicians and singers to join them in the performances. Every Friday night at the club you will be treated to a feast of Irish folk and ballad songs and tunes as well as songs from international performers such as Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Dean Martin and the King himself, Elvis, all in an all acoustic setting. There is also a regular feature spot for a group, singer, and or songwriter storyteller from the Fingal area to give a performance of their favourite pieces of work. All of this costs just €5 for an adult and children under 16 get in for free in a non-alcoholic environment which makes this one of those rare things, a real family night out.
