Has your Session Pub enjoyed a visit from the Fiddle Bus?
Last Sunday one of my local session venues, the Skerry Inn, high in the Antrim Hills had a wee visit from the Session Bus, a group of excellent Scottish & Irish Fiddle players who explore a new area each year. This year they were in Ireland & we were lucky enough to have them call up to Co. Antrim.
Fiddlers on this tour included Paul Anderson, Liam O’Connor, John Kelly, Liam O’Connor, Liam O’Connor, Cathal Caulfield, Shona Donaldson, George Davidson, James Beatley, plus Mick O’Connor on Flute, Gearóid Cahillane on Mandolin & Mick Mullen on Guitar.
As you’ll see from the photos, they were joined by a merry band of local musicians for mighty Sunday afternoon session, including special guest, the legendary John Kennedy … no better way to spend an afternoon.
To get a flavour of the afternoon concert & session, check out my photos here:

Has anyone else had the pleasure of having this merry band of musical maestros land in on them?
If so, have you any photos or tales to tell?
