No the LSC is not reviving- I'm back to Scotland soon & Jackie is fine just now, but still fighting ill-health.

   Davitt's of Drumkeeran is still a likely spot for a session but next weekend the main attraction is at Ballinaglera, where the fine flute player Sean Gilrane organises a great weekend of traditional (mainly Leitrim) music.
Ballinaglera has two pub/grocers and a community hall- the pubs are among the finest in the Northwest _ skerry Rynn's and Mulvey's.


The village is on the east side of Lough Allen, between Drumshanbo and Dowra, so if you're anywhere near it's a great weekend!

There seems to be a little doubt about the revival of the Leitrim Singers' Circle.

To clarify, myself & Jackie Boyce are putting on one more meeting as part of the John McKenna festival      www.johnmckenna.ie

It's on Saturday 9 June featuring Fiona & Jim Byrne - Fiona is a daughter of that great Ayrshire singer, Heather Heywood, and a fine singer in the family tradition- Jim's a handy lad on the guitar as well as no mean singer himself!   It will be 5pm on the 9 June in the lovely old Davitt's pub in Drumkeeran, between Manorhamilton and Drumshanbo.

There will also be a singing & music event at 3pm on the Sunday 10 June at the Arigna Mining Experience, on the site of one of the Arigna mines, where John McKenna worked in his youth.

This is to pay homage to miners of the world and all are welcome to contribute songs, poems jokes, tunes etc

No charge for either event & there is a cafe at Arigna- all welcome!

Plenty of great music all weekend in the four pubs as well!

One or two folk have asked about LSC. Well, it lasted five years at the lovely Davitt's pub in Drumkeeran.

However, the last meeting was in early December- neither Jackie Boyce nor I could guarantee to attend regularly and although we'd hoped someone might take it over, there were no offers, so the inevitable happened.

Thanks to all who contributed to many memorable sessions- both Jackie & I hope to still be involved in the John McKenna Traditional Festival in early June.

I am not planning any visits to folk clubs & festivals this year although you never know!

Lovely John McKenna Festival session last weekend with Fiona & Jim Byrne. Fiona is daughter of that fine Scottish singer Heather Heywood, and it shows- great stuff from her and Jim, no mean singer/guitarist himself.

On Sunday our annual session of mining songs at the ARIGNA MINING EXPERIENCE went extremely well, attracting a good crowd. In a two hour session, only myself as fear an ti and guests Fiona and Jim did more than one song, with a few tunes as well
Back to Sundays at 5 for next meetings- first Sunday at Davitts of Drumkeeran.
July-    no guest

August- LINKUM DODDY from SW Scotland- Phyllis & Billy Martin from Dalbeattie and Tam & Agnes Wightman from Girvan. A four part a capella group paying us their annual visit-don't miss it!

September- PAT SMITH and NED CLAMP - songs, concertina, spoons and guitar. Organisers of the long established folk club in Llantrisant, South Wales- a very lively and entertainng duo who have taken Welsh traditional music all over the globe.
.... we are working on guests for the rest of 2017 & have some interesting Irish guests in mind!- more later on that

Sorry Felipa, this slipped my mind completely- but the answer was no, our Scottish friends LINKUM DODDIE sang nowhere else....Frank Davitts is a unique place!
It was a very enjoyable evening with many local singers including four of the five McKeaney sisters - we've now listed our guests for the rest of 2016 & working on next year now.
All meetings at Davitt's pub, DRUMKEERAN, County Leitrim at 5pm Irish time on the FIRST Sunday of the month except for October, when it will be the SECOND Sunday- this is so as not to clash with two other local traditional festivals.

September 4

MAIREAD WALLS fine traditional style singer from Toome in
             Co. Antrim

October 9
   
GRACE TOLAND, excellent singer from Donegal with BRIAN DOYLE- another
                grand Donegal-based singer and fiddle player- we don't JUST sing- a few tunes and the odd story, monologue or joke are all part of our traditional mix!

November 6   

ANNA McMANUS, locally based member of the McKeaney sisters with a great repertoire of songs

December 4

ROISIN WHITE- highly respected singer and TG4 award winner from County Down, now based in Miltown Malbay

   before anyone comments, we hope to book some MALE singers in 2017!

The November 1 Leitrim Singers' Circle meeting of 1 November was just what such gatherings should be!
TIM DENNEHY was on top form, and responded to the assembly with a fine set of songs. A friendly, respectful bar like Davitt's is just the place for Tim & there were plenty of high class singers who added songs and stories & an old time waltz to the mix!
It'll be hard to follow this, but we will meet again on December 6th at the usual place!

Well in October, we postponed the usual first Sunday session (Oct 4)to the second Sunday (Oct 11) due to nearby festivals in Sligo and Ballinaglera. We then also put back our usual 5pm start for two hours due to the Ireland-France rugby match.
We then found out that there was an important (?) soccer match immediately after the rugby- it's tiddlywinks next Sunday.

Anyway, we moved into a private room at the usual pub, and it all went very well- thanks to the family and visiting singers!

Next meeting is back to normal at Davitt's of Drumkeeran on Sunday November 1st at 5pm- special guest
TIM DENNEHY of Miltown Malbay.

Just to say that the regular Davitt's singing session was held on Sept 4th, and was, I'm told, very enjoyable.

Next one is not on the usual first Sunday, October 4th but will be on October 11 just for that month. Reason is that Jackie Boyce is a guest singer at the Sligo Singers Festival Oct 2-4, and I am at Tenterden in Kent the same weekend. I will post a reminder re Oct 11th later in the month.

There is a song/music session at Stanford's pub in Dromahair village on 18 Sept (10 pm) and another at Rynn's pub on the R206 six miles north of Drumshanb, Co Leitrim. This will be at 5pm.ish on Sunday September 27.

Just to say thanks to all the singers from Belfast, Ardara, Dorset (!) Boyle and Sligo, amongst other places, who turned up to make this session at Davitts of Drumkeeran, an excellent event- our guest Rita Gallagher was on top form and we had a few tunes as well.
The pub was under a bit of pressure due to Francis Davitt being in hospital after an accident playing football, but still coped with a decent crowd- thanks!
Next meeting will be on August 2 - same time- same venue...

This a belated apology to anyone who turned up for the advertised singing session with RITA GALLAGHER in June. It was scheduled as part of the McKenna festival Due to the untimely death of the chairperson, Packie McPartlan, on the eve of the festival, the whole festival was cancelled at short notice.

The singing session will now be held on the usual first Sunday of the month in Davitts pub in Drumkeeran July 5th at 5pm, with guest RITA GALLAGHER. WE thank Rita for her understanding and look forward to an excellent session. ALL WEKLCOME!

Just to repeat that for the JUNE session only, the Leitrim Singers will gather in Davitt's pub at 2pm on SATURDAY June 6 rather than the first Sunday of the month,this being an hour earlier than usual.

This is because it is part of the John McKenna Traditional Weekend in Drumkeeran, commemorating the great flute player from the village.
The festival is mostly a musical gathering but the singing session will feature as guest Rita Gallagher of Donegal, one of Ireland's finest singers- don't miss it.

Glad to report that a decent crowd (about 25) turned up for the latest meeting of the circle at Fordes of Drumkeeran on Sunday November.
Len Graham was in excellent form, and gave us a selection of his songs- Len is well known at festivals & folk clubs in UK and beyond, so has plenty of material to choose from. The Leitrim Circle follow the standard Irish singers circle pattern of a guest singing only about ten songs at various points through the evening. I've heard Irish traditional performers being quite shocked at the UK folk club standard of two 45 minute performances!
Folk like Len Graham have no problem in either place, and the sheer quality of the man's singing continues to amaze.
Next meeting date doubtful, watch this space....

Well, our change of date became a change of venue as well when a post-funeral group arrived at Forde's just before our start time. So we went to Davitt's, across the road and had an excellent evening with about 25 folk there, including about 15 singers. We use Forde's as it has a separate room, but it worked very well at the back of the long bar in this lovely old pub, so... Next meeting should be Sunday May 4 in Forde's at 5pm- any venue/date change will be announced here!

Just confirming that our singing session will now be at 5pm on Sunday 16th March in Fordes pub, Main St, DRUMKEERAN, Co Leitrim and not the usual first Sunday.

This is because about 20 miles away in Swanlinbar, Co Cavan,on March 2 at 5.30, there is a singing session as part of the John Joe Maguire festival and many folk will head there. Also Jackie is off up north & I am at the Tiger folk club in Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire so 16th is a better idea!! Its St Patrick's weekend & the Drumkeeran village parade will be on the same evening...
