On August 8th, Friday last, the Irish Wakers charmed at the Music at the Cannery series with Michael Burnyeat on the fiddle as a special guest.
The 2014 Music at the Cannery series has been, for the most part, graced with excellent weather. And last Friday was no exception; Irish jigs and Maritime reels were paired with hot sun and blue skies, bringing to mind the feeling of a salt lashed sea voyage.
It made for an energetic, animated evening that left all in attendance smiling and good-humoured.
Like the week before it, all seats on the tank deck were taken by ten past six. However, many decided to stay even so and enjoy the music in the park. Not a bad idea, considering the nice soft grass and nearby ice cream stand!
There are now only three shows left for Music at the Cannery this summer – next week is Robert Hubele playing original jazz, pop, country and blues. Be sure to arrive by about 6pm to ensure a seat on the tank deck. And, as always, concession and cash bar are available.
