A Vibe for Larry Roddy

The late, great Larry Roddy.
The second annual 'Vibe for Larry Roddy' & BAG Christmas get-together takes place on Friday December 14, in Mick Murphy's, Ballymore Eustace, Co. Kildare, from 8pm-ish.

This is an informal event where we, friends and family of the late, great Larry Roddy, will gather to remember our friend; and by playing music, singing songs, telling stories and drinking a few pints together, we will send good vibes out to Larry and Trish.

So, if you knew Larry and Trish, or you're a BAG regular/occassional, or both, and would like to be a part of this music session, just grab an instrument if you play one, and come and join us; if you don't play, come anyway!

We'll have a grand time!

Declan Sinnott - Monday December 10


Declan Sinnott plays BAG at Mick Murphy's, Ballymore Eustace, Co. Kildare, Monday December 10. Doors 8:30pm, Show 9:15pm sharp. Admission: €12 on the door.

I am particularly pleased to welcome Declan Sinnott to BAG; he has played Ballymore before in his role as guitarslinger sideman, but this is different- for us, and for Declan.
After 30+ years in the game, Declan Sinnott has just released his first solo album.

I know: mad, isn't it? Well it's true, and it's called 'I Love The Noise It Makes'.
Given that Declan is such a renowned guitarist and producer, the title suggests his fascination with all things to do with making and recording music and sound; it could equally suggest a man at last comfortable enough with his own sound - guitar and voice - to put it out there in its own right.
Why don't you decide by coming and catching this true living legend of the Irish music scene in an intimate live setting.
This is the last BAG gig of the year; you could say we're saving the best for last!
