Hi All -

Attended an excellent Concert last night featuring Eric Bogle and his sidekick, John Munro ...   Small hall, sparsely attended, unfortunately - certainly not a reflection on their talent or presence, but it made for a nice intimate show...

The two sets featured some of his classics ('Band Played Waltzing Matilda', 'No Man's Land') and many songs from his most recent CD release, 'The Colour of Dreams'... Some very powerful lyric content (a Bogle trademark) and a few biting satirical tunes kept the edge sharp and well-balanced...

This was the first time I had heard the Music of John Munro - most impressive - excellent guitar work and mando licks as well.   His vocal harmonies blended nicely with Eric's solid melody line - you could tell this wasn't the first time they'd performed together... spot-on timing in some tricky musical passages.

Eric Bogle kept a solid running commentary between numbers; humorous anecdotes and witty asides had us all in stitches and lightened the tone from some of his more serious tunes...

They're off to the Boston, MA area tonight, I think - any 'Catters (or anyone else) should make a point of catching this act as the tour winds down... He'll be heading North to Canada before swinging through Texas and finishing up in New Orleans... Great stuff !

Murph

Dave O'Neill is living in Donegal at the moment. He's touring & playing with Liz Doherty & playing with local fiddle players & having a great time. A letter from him was in the Nov issue of Cornstalk (magazine of the New South Wales Folk Federation.

Looking forward to seeing him in England next year. His first gig (Friday, July 18th) will be at our Festival (Saddleworth) - I'm definitely NOT going to be on the Festival Office after 10.00 that evening!!

Wow--that's great news for Dave. I loved the Eric Bogle lineup with him in it, and I'm sure he and Liz make a good match. I'll have to check them out together if I get the chance. Is there a CD with the two of them?

Sandra asked it I could add to the chat. Eric as you've seen is travelling with John Munro at present. Dave is presently touring
with Liz Doherty as a duo. don't know if there's any plans to change either set up at present. To my knowledge Eric & Dave didn't
do anything "together" but they are well and truly on Eric's last 3 CD's all of which can be sourced from http://www.windbourne.com/ebogle/

regards, Jim

Gee, Murph,

I was disappointed to see this thread. Was Eric in our area? I would have loved to hear him in person!

John Monro was   over here in the summer touring with his band Colcannon. They are definitely worth a listen.

I just saw the thread. My assumption is that Murph was in--I forget the town--in Calif. Eric Bogle --who I had the honor of introducing in Paramus NJ a few weeks back---said the turnout there was awful. He He also said that the rest of the tour was great---and I can say that Paramus NJ was just about sold out.

The concert was wonderful. His presence and his music are always something that can mesmerize the audience. They were laughing---and crying from his talk and music.

The comet passes once again in 2005.   Get your reservations

Pat - I agree about Colcannan - they are great. I have their CD 'The Eureka Suite (Eric is one of the artists on it) & was lucky enough to see them perform this Suite at the National Folk Festival last year,
