THE RAW BAR

Nicola from  the band GradaSeoladh an Raw Bar Folk Club sa Garrick i mBéal Feirste ar na mallaibh le seisiún den scoth ó Damien O'Kane, Brian Finnegan agus Éamonn McElholm. Is é Pól Ó Floinn Oifigeach na n-Ealaíon Traidisiúnta ag Comhairle na n-Ealaíon Thuaisceart Éireann. Tugann sé féin agus Jim Rainey le fios dúinn go raibh sé ar intinn acu tús a chur le club den chineál seo le fada an lá.
