Irish band from Wales plays US airbase in Greenland

When an Irish folk band from Wales was asked to play on an American airbase in Greenland - organisers, understandably, thought it was a hoax.

But the email sent to IT consultant Rory McGough, from Denbigh, from the Pentagon, Virginia, asking him to take the Wee Bag Band to Thule for St Patrick's Day was genuine.

On Thursday evening, the band will play its first gig to about 600 service personnel.

Sarah Easedale reports.
