Fingal Folk Club – Australian Guitarist Peter Miller Visits Fri 5th Sept, 2014

Peter Miller

Friday 5th September

Australian guitarist Peter Miller will be visiting the Fingal Folk Club on Friday 5th September on his European tour that includes Ireland, Dublin, Cloughjordan, Clare then France and Germany. Peter has toured Ireland and Europe on numerous occasions where he has shared the stage with Legendary song writer John Spillane, piper Eoin Duignan, Slide player Clive Barnes, Stephen Housden (LRB), Gerry O’Beirne, played for the Lorenzo “Logie” Meachum Band in Prague and much more.

In his home country of Australia Peter has played numerous festivals including Cygnet Folk Festival, Australian and National Celtic Festivals and Melbourne Guitar Makers Festival to name a few. In his home town of the Gold Coast he opened for the legendary Pierre Bensusan whilst Pierre was on his debut Australian tour.

His music has appeared world-wide on Film and Television including Cult UK show ‘Skins’. Tracks have appeared on compilation CDs worldwide.
His live performances are a mixture of solo and (sometimes) layered guitar pieces using a loop-station (JamMan). Most of his playing style is of a Celtic and folk mix that will complement his visit to the Fingal Folk Club.

The concert starts at 8pm when all the musicians will join in a round the house session, that Peter will also join in with. Later in the evening we will feature Peter’s music with some solo performances.

This has the making of a great night’s entertainment and an opportunity to hear one of Australia’s finest musicians.

Show starts at 8pm new performers can contact us through our website www.fingalfolkclub.com or by calling 085-1743748.
Club Sub. Adults €5 Children free and must be accompanied, light refreshments no charge.

Email Bag: Eircom Broadband Ballyboughal

Anon sez:

Go see http://www.eircom.net/efibreinfo/map/

You will see a fibre bb rollout schedule. Note that Green usually means it is already available.

Zoom into Ballyboughal and you see an area for which there are no plans whatsoever this year or next while everyone around us has it available or will have it soon.

Did someone annoy someone in Eircom? Are we to believe that no one wants 100Mbps capability in Ballyboughal? Who is representing us here?

Anyone ?
