7th Annual 'Vibe for Larry' - Friday, Dec 8th

Each year in early December we pay tribute to our dear departed friend, Larry Roddy; this year's 'Vibe for Larry' is the seventh year of so doing.

Larry was a music promoter, and agent. But mostly, he just loved folk music of all kinds. He loved the idea of putting musicians and listeners in the one room, and watching the magic happen between them; he delighted in seeing performer and listener come together as one, sending melody and applause out into the good night.

And so, at this time each year, we - his friends, family, and regular BAG attendees - come together to remember him with love, and in appreciation for all the musical gifts he gave us. In doing so, we send our own music, songs, poetry, stories, and laughter out into the good night so that it might reach Larry, away off out in the great beyond. 

It is always a joyous evening.

So come along on Friday, Dec 8th, from 8pm. All musicians, singers, etc. welcome. Admission is free, but we will have a voluntary contribution box this year in aid of Dublin Simon Community - a charity Larry always tried to do a bit for. 

Edit: The collection on the night yielded €200 which was forwarded to Dublin Simon Community. Thanks to everyone who came along and contributed; it was a great night.
