Re: Thank you Dublin!

Hi All, Like so many others I'd like to thank everyone from the organising committee and others who were involved for the great event they put on in Dublin. The quality of the acts amazed me and I'd a make a special effort to see them again. I also enjoyed the evening at The Lansdowne Hotel and it w...

Re: Bob Dylan - European Tour 2014

I saw him in Dublin, and it was possibly one of the best Dylan concerts I've been to ( starting in 1965). He sang the normal set list (see the above link to Johanna's Visions) but he sang the songs with feelings and a little bit of melancholia. I loved 'Things have changed' 'Love Sick', 'Tangled up ...

Re: Leonard Cohen Tribute Night 29th of May

Hi Aloric, (??) Hope it goes well. If it was mid July or early August, I think a few more from the forum would be there. I love Padraig's Place and maybe Greg and Mary or even Joe may sing/play a few songs. Have fun, Happy memories of my trips to Galway, Padraig's Place,The Crane Bar. The Quays and ...

Re: Where is our 2016 Event??

Hi All, I agree with most of what Bea has said and virtually all of Henning’s and Ken’s posts ( honest….) I think the strict timetable of biennial events alternating between America and Europe has reached a conclusion. The pressure on the organisers is unfair and the need to ‘balance the books’ arou...

Re: LC Walking Weekend (2009, 2011, 2013)

IMG_2714_opt.jpg Remember when we were in Galway last year, (happy days), that I won the B V B scarf, which I think was provided by Bernadine, for predicting the correct match score. Well, as nice as it was to win the prize, I felt that it was a waste just lying in my wardrobe. When I saw that Live...

Cropredy line up 2014

Hi All I loved going to Cropredy, it's the best festival you could ever spend time at. But when Leonard started touring again, I stopped attending, and also the line up hasn't been great, but this years line up is special. Waterboys, Capercaille, Aussie Pink Floyd. Al Stewart etc etc Unfortunately t...

Lucca festival, Dylan??

Hi All
For those who visited Lucca last year to see Leonard and, like me, loved the beautiful city, the programme for this year has not yet been released, but there are strong rumours Mr Dylan will be appearing.
This may encourage a few to return to the Lucca festival, might discourage others!!

Sounds like a great film.
Listen to the music at the above link.
Seems to be based on the life of Dave Van Ronk

Re: Autumn Update - Leonard Cohen Event Dublin 2014

Hi Paula Thanks for all your hard work. Over the Galway walking weekend, Joe arranged for 2 musicians. (I shamefully have forgotten their names) to accompany us. They were lovely people and good entertainers, enjoyed by all, singing Irish songs, and songs by Leonard and Bob, It would be good if they...

Ken You're so polite (as usual) Well established= Well! Is he blasted? (An Irish phrase meaning 'tired and emotional) Into culture at the moment, went to The Irish Film Institute, and The National Gallery of Ireland. Really good coffes and toilets! Disappointed with the NG, nothing by Francis Bacon!...

The walk from the RyanAir arrival hub to the Galway bus stop is good training for the following days walks.
Allow yourself at least 30 mins and no bars en route.

Re: Meet up in Dublin

Hi All
I'm staying in The Ferryman on Wednesday night, just across the Samuel Becket bridge from the Cill Airne.
Hope to see a few people on the boat for a snack and chat, unless 'the music and blackstuff' in The Ferryman detains me ....
See you on Wednesday, somewhere in Dublin.
Take care
Dave
