It's not bluesfest without the Paddies?

Last year was reggae free is this year Irish free?

In town will be the regular gun Luka Bloom

Bring back Damien Dempsey, Christy Moore is probably too big to add at this stage, or is he??

I've heard Daniel O Donnell comes cheap and played a 3hr set in Adeliade last yr with no electricity- I never saw him but my sources that put me onto Keith Chesney said his mildly and politely kicked ass!

Every year there's always been 2 Irish acts - we need that bit of Celtic soul music to make this the world music fest that it is!! I'm ready to burn my five day pass in protest! Who's with me???

Who's with me?

Looks like your alone on the ticket burning.



When it comes to the irish Shane MacGowan would be my pick.


I'm not sure if i'd like to be way up front for a Shane MacGowan set given the fact he sometimes tends to regugitate on stage.
If Shane ever makes it to bf those up front should keep a poncho - raincoat handy, just in case.

Ohh Maccain

About 50% of the Irish are somewhere between OK and sensational

The other half are male, and just drink all the beer and steal the women folk, and leave shillelagh indentations in innocent heads

On the sensational side is Cara Robinson, who, I think is on the bill

Shane MacGowan was at Bluesfest at Red Devil days. He is a bit of a novelty act as you are expecting him to pass out halfway through act as he is always s...faced. Even had a cup holder on his mike stand.

The Waterboys are my pick for an Irish band. Currently doing european festivals as well as a seperate shows putting WB Yeats poems to music, getting good reviews. They are also quite bluesy with fiddle as a blues instrument. They are free in April as well. I have been requesting them for years.

She's "impressive" for sure!!

Over recent years from my fried memory, some solid acts that have been around a long time not one hit wonders (england's karaoke king Newton Fawlkner anyone?)

Shane McGowan
Sinead O Connor
Luka Bloom
Glenn Hanstard
Bob Geldoff
Hothouse Flowers
Damien Dempsey
The Specials
All were sensational from memory, acts for the jambalaya not the mojo..

Speaking of Irish, we just saw the incredible Imelda May last night at the Hi-Fi - what an awesome night! She and her crackin' band rocked the house and tore it up good!

Waterboys agreed! Shane McGowan is a living legend / just ask Nick Cave who the best songwriter alive is .... As for novelty acts look no further than Newton Fawkner with his slide shows and queen covers .. Or Joss Stone she speaks in a thousand accents but none of them hers ...

all the irish acts listed above,i loved at bluesfest ,especially hothouse flowers,they were quite a surprise.
i do always feel a connection with most irish acts -except u2.

I don't want to hang up my rock n roll shoes
I get a good time feeling every time I hear those blues.

How about some Boston Irish :)





The Dropkick Murphys

Kiss Me I'm Shitfaced

Sorry tried to add an image but couldn't figure it out but could do the hyperlink.

I would think they would eat Daniel O'Donnell for breakfast then spit him out again :)

What a night Sharleen!

My wife's calling it the best concert ever and I'm inclined to agree

Might have to go upstairs to the video ref to make the call between Imelda at the Hifi and R.L. at the Jukejoint though.

this is correct
What needs to go between the two bracket sets is the COPY IMAGE LOCATION obtained by right clicking on the wanted image

Good Luck

when I right click on a photo in 'My Documents' i don't get the 'copy location' option, and when i right click on a photo on the web I get a 'copy link location' but it doesn't seem to upload?

Before you print a picture on the forum,you need to decide what size you want it to be.

For instance my signature picture is Thumbnail size.
