Fleadh Nua Ennis Riches of Clare Lunchtime concert

The Fleadh Nua is in full swing in Ennis this week. I went along to the 'Riches of Clare' lunchtime series in the Council office at the museum. There was a full house . The group, two fiddles, piano and accordion played a selection of dance music punctuated by a few songs from two gentlemen in the audience.

The organisation of the event was impressive. Details published in advance , a regular lunchtime slot and a large attractive banner. The venue is awkward , up two flights and hard to move in and out of . Nipping out half way through is not aboption. I find it a bit tedious to listen to a lot of dance music without accompanying feet and don't understand why groups in this setting don't include an accasional air to break it up a bit
