Garry Walsh

 There was a  kind of hush in the Cove Bar last night as punters packed the upstairs room  for an evening at the newly launched Waterford Folk and Roots Club  Youthful  impressario, Garry Walsh presented singer songwriter Mick Hanly to open the guest roster. It drew an audience who listened with quiet intensity to catch all the twists and turns in thoughtful musical tales  and anecdotes delivered in Hanly's beguiling  sotto voce with elegant guitar accompaniment.  You could hear - well if not the  proverbial pin drop, the odd wrapper crackle. These were proper vinyl record carrying fans and quite a few copies of  Hanly's memoir 'Wish Me Well' went home . He describes it as anextended sleeve not to his lates album.  The life of Irish travelling troubadours isn't often chronicled and I am looking forward to reading it.
Garry mentioned some exciting names on the folk scene for future events. So keep an eye out for
