IF you are looking to celebrate St Patrick's Day (which is Monday, March 17) you might want to head to the George Hotel on Saturday.
Ambassadors of Irish music Craobh Rua will be showcasing songs and tunes from their sixth and latest album I'd Understand You If I Knew What You Meant.
Craobh Rua (pronounced Crave Ru-ah – the Red Branch) play Irish traditional music from the heart. They mix rousing jigs, reels and polkas with tender ballads and airs. Theirs is a music driven by uilleann pipes, fiddle, whistles and the exciting banjo and mandolin playing of group founder Brian Connolly with passionate vocals from Jim Rainey.
"Craobh Rua are great musicians and entertainers and few can resist the exuberance and energy of excellence of Celtic music when played like this," said owner of the George, Cathy Doel. "It is obvious why they are such firm favourites on the UK, European and roots circuit, as they play Irish traditional music as it should be played – from the heart."
Craobh Rua are at the George Hotel, South Molton on Saturday, March 15, 8.30pm. Tickets: £12.50 on 01769 572514 or at www.wegottickets.com.
