We will be celebrating Valentines' Day on February 14 with the band knacker's yard !


Traditional music enthusiasts will appreciate the song-tales of lost love and betrayal, the misdeeds of ramblers and rakes, emigration, sea shanties and worker’s songs. In addition to these ballads and chorus songs, KNACKER’S YARD also adds the explosive musical energy of traditional instrumental, reels and jigs.

The KNACKER’S YARD performs primarily traditional Celtic and English folk songs, instrumentals and ballads dating from the 1600’s up to the 1960’s. This six musicians band brings to stage: tenor banjo, five-string banjo, bodhran, mandolin, steel-string guitar, vocals and electric bass guitar.

KNACKER’S YARD now present their first self-recorded demo, the “High Street Demo”. While arranged by the group, the songs on this demo are closest in presentation to the musical style of The Dubliners, a style the group has chosen for its clear, direct and energetic presentation. In addition to this, the group brings in elements from the youthful urban revival of traditional music in the 60’s and 70’s and also from the humble, stripped down presentation such as can be found on many of the more traditional singer/songwriter albums of the 1960’s.

It is going to be an amazing treat for music lovers! As well, Knacker’s Yard has promised to play a number of love songs for us since it is Valentine’s Day that evening!

Come on your own or bring along friends and family for this great evening!

We will open up the night with OPEN STAGE.
