The Highway For Hanway & Harper

A dual banjo outfit of might not seem to promise  the most varied palette of timbres for a musical evening.  In fact banjo playing  duo, Tom Hanway and Dave Harper's  musical offering at The Highway, Crusheen had  a surprising variety both in metre and instruments. Both swapped between guitar and banjo and Harper introduced a lively dance element with tunes on wooden flute and occasionally added a bodhran to the blend. Best of all were the songs in a bluegrass/country vein . All for a modest gig charge of €12 . More on the forthcoming  gigs from Island Music Club here. Clare Gigs Website
