About the Event
Both Sides Now
Music from the Transatlantic Highways., The Ardowen, Enniskillen
8 pm £13.50
It has always been acknowledged that American roots music has its foundations rooted in these islands. In America it developed and grew in various directions while keeping its own integrity and style. Music from Ireland and Scotland has remained intact and even grown while, at the same time, it has influenced and inspired many.
‘Both Sides Now’ brings it back together again with a blend of Irish, Scottish and Americana. The Knotty Pine String Band have joined with The Drunken Lullabies to bring you a sound with ‘The Devil Goes Down To Georgia’ mixed with a Scottish reel ‘The Glasgow Reel’. Everybody’s favourite ‘Danny Boy’ with twin fiddles also gets special treatment. There are songs such as ‘Hard Times’, ’The Long Black Veil’ and even ‘The Leaving of Liverpool’.
There will be sets from each band and when they come together the effect is magical. www.ardhowentheatre.com
