Tonight: The Mosher/Ekstrand Experiment
Time: 9:00 pm
Our friends Kathy Mosher and Bobby Ekstrand will be in the pub tonight providing the jazz. They are treasures, those two. Theyâ€™ll play an eclectic mix of music ranging from folk to blues and toss in a dash of rock and a bit of jazz to boot. Music from 8:30/9:00 – 11:00.
Itâ€™s the Mosher-Ekstrand Experiment! And itâ€™s good. See you soon.
NEWS FROM THE ISLES
* Chancellor Barred from Pubs: When Alistair Darling, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, raised the price of pints in his latest budget, the publicans in a Cumbrian town decided to ban him from their pubs for “threatening and anti-social behaviour.” Cheers!
* Rhubarb Jones! A woman in Wales has found a World War I medal in a rhubarb patch. Lovely. She now wants to return it to the rightful family, only her lead is that it belonged to a Pvt Jones. Good luck in Wales! You can’t swing a Dingley by the tail without hitting a Jones over there….
* Returning to Roots: American bankers from the Bank of New York Mellon are to visit the simple ancestral home (near Omagh) of their banking patriarch, Thomas Mellon, who emigrated to the United States in 1818. Perhaps they ought to make visits like this to the small homes of Americans (who they haven’t been treating so well)!
* “Ally Bally Bee…”: The author of a popular Scots lullaby will be recognized by his home town 130 years after his death (by which I mean now, as he died 130 years ago)
