Subject: RE: John Conolly at Barnsley FC Mon 26th
Thanks for the mentions of BOMFest and Julie's slot on the acoustic stage there. She's on stage at 4:45pm for a 40 minute set (we think!). The BOM (Barnsley Original Music) people are a great bunch and have transformed the music scene in Barnsley in recent years. Well worth supporting.
At the risk of a thread hijack I can also mention that Julie is on BBC Radio Sheffield as a guest on the Bernie Clifton show on Sunday 23rd July, shortly after 4pm, and will be doing a "Transatlantic Double Bill" with Nashville-based Canadian singer songwriter Tia McGraff at the Blah Bar, Barnsley on Thursday 27th July. Advance tickets (at £6 rather than £8 on the door) from the venue or from 01724 735 349.
Ironically I never made it over to Barnsley FC when we lived in the area (we moved this week from Rotherham to N. Lincolnshire) but I am pleased to see the club so active.
