Ireland

Work is taking me to Ireland on Friday. My time is limited but I have the whole weekend in Belfast, and then Tuesday night free in Dublin. I've got my Rough Guide and will try to see some of the sites during the days, but am looking to fill my evenings with music.

For Saturday night in Belfast, I'm torn between the Fureys with Davey Arthur (I know they were pretty popular in their day and have been enjoying what I'm listening to, but are they any good without Finbar and how much is it a chessy nostalgia fest?) and Tiarnan O Duinnchinn & Laoise Kelly (a uillean piper and harpist, the real thing in an Irish language centre but a rather austere night...).

Nothing is jumping out on Sunday night, I'll see where the wind takes me There are a few sessions that might be okay, or else singer-songwriter Mick Flannery who sounds okay. Bit David Gray. Will probably be nice in a concert atmosphere.

My Tuesday night in Dublin I hope to be at the session at The Cobblestone Bar, which sounds like the best having studied the options listed on thesession.org.

Any tips welcome.
