Thread Name: Music in Clifden (Ireland)
Subject: RE: Music in Clifden (Ireland)
We were there just the other week on a Monday night - nothing doing despite some of them saying they did music "every night of the week".
We did get some music in our hotel in Westport on the Sunday night - Polish barmaid said it would be "country" but "feelgood". One set went from Tom Paxton into Johnny Cash without a break! Wandered up the road to Matt Molloy's bar but no music that we could hear.
Finally got some music in Galway on the Tuesday, spoke to someone who asked if I played anything - thanks to Ryanair didn't dare bring any instruments. Yer man says, ask the barman, there might be a bodhran behind the bar - so I did, and they offered to SELL me one of those 6in diameter souvenir ones! Sorry, but NO!
