Egon Callery in the Corner Bar
The night starts and ends with Dutchman Egon Callery. According to huge Dylan fan Paddy the Shoe, Egon is one of he class acts about the place. he’s right up there with he very best. He will start off an Open Mic night in the Corner Bar at 8pm. He will play for half an hour and then hand over to anyone else who wants to play a couple of Dylan songs.
One who has taken up that offer is Chris Barnes from England. He will be hosting the Saturday and Sunday afternoon outdoor Open Mics in he benches outside Rosatos at 4pm each day.
Lets hope a few fans volunteer this evening in the Corner Bar.
Shaun Hiboy in the Foyle Hotel
At 9:30pm Shaun Hiboy will start in the Foyle Hotel. Shaun and Paddy the Shoe used to make Rawdon’s the most popular pub in town on a Saturday night. They played a lot of Dylan songs in their set. Shaun always finished up the gig with Like a Rolling Stone with everyone joining in. He helped make that song Moville’s new Anthem.
Shaun once went to a songwriting workshop hosted by Glen Hansard.They all had to write a song on he last day. Guess who won the Best Song award? It was Shaun Hiboy. Maybe he’ll let you hear it tonight.
Dylan Quiz and Egon Callery in Rosatos
Also at 9:330 in Rosatos there will be a Dylan quiz. Not all the questions will be about Dylan to be fair to the regular quiz goers there. But 26 out of the 60 questions will be about Dylan.
How do I know that? Well, I wrote the questions. So don’t ask me the answers (unless you buy me a drink first).
When the questions are over at around 11:30pm Egon Callery takes over. As I say he is much sought after. Indeed he’s wanted by two pubs in the one night.
It’s going to be a great night.
