Michael Dwyer Festival

Michael Dwyer Festival in Allihies a tiny village far out west on the Beara peninsula. A good turn out for the Michael Dwyer traditional Irish music festival for 2014. I did not get to take too many photos as I was busy with other things this weekend but enjoyed some good music in the evenings.

Dr Strangely Strange High Tide Club

Dr Strangely Strange High Tide Club on Friday the 17th of May a good show by the lads in Sarah Walkers gallery also known as the High Tide Club. They had the audience in the palm of their hands. Unsurprising as they have been playing together for a  number of years….The new group “The Bunties” played before as support act and sang a good half dozen songs to warm up the crowd..
