Folk Night, September 14th, 9PM at the Ship Pub
The Old Blue String Band blends old-timey and bluegrass songs and tunes well seasoned with some updated classic songs for a tasty heaping helping of passion, pathos and pluck. The band brings together equally well-seasoned musicians Allan Byrne – guitar, vocals (the Byrne family dynasty; Blue Drop), Dave Rowe – mandolin, “bull” fiddle, vocals (the Rowe family dynasty; Crooked Stovepipe; numerous other bands; propriety or O’Brien’s Music) and Scott Schillereff – clawhammer banjo, hammered dulcimer, vocals (steeped in Appalachian tradition; Tickle Harbour; Atlantic Union; and Newfoundlander by choice). Come and join us – it’s a great night for an evening!
This event is sponsored by the St. John’s Farmers Market, Living Planet/Johnny Ruth, Fred’s Records, Rocket Bakery, O’Brien’s Music, Food for Thought, the Travel Bug, the Ship Pub, Jumping Bean and Labatt`s Breweries with assistance from the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council.
