On long winter nights in Ireland, people congregated in a local rambling house for storytelling, singing, dancing and the odd bit of gossip. It was how our forefathers entertained each other.
We plan to recreate this type of event with our first Irish Rambling House on Saturday, January 25th at 2pm. The venue will be upstairs in Nallens Irish Pub which is the perfect setting to hear people share the singing tradition from Ireland without any background distractions or noise.
The event is open to anyone both young and old who would like to perform an Irish, Scottish or Celtic song, poem or story. Others may prefer to just sit and listen to this unique style of entertainment and get a deeper insight into the history of Ireland told through song. Admission is free but please RSVP so we can have a better idea of numbers. We already have a good few singers and storytellers lined up.
"Then sing your songs and play your tunes beside the fireside glow
And take us back to how it was in the Ireland of long ago."
