Such an amazing band! Really filled the room and got everyone up and dancing. Not only that, a really nice bunch of guys as well to boot! Thank you all for making my birthday one to remember!

Birthday Party

Another brilliant night on Thursday and it was great to see the Vaults so full. Rob wants the date of the next one please?  … particular favourites were Galway Girl, Irish Rover and that lovely instrumental piece on the whistle. Was it a low F and what was the piece called please? As usual the violin playing was amazing and we were in awe.
