Garnet Rogers back at the Trailside

Last October Catherine and I had the great pleasure of attending a Garnet Rogers concert at the Trailside in Mount Stewart. Doug Deacon just emailed to let me know that he’s been able to book return dates for Garnet: he’s playing four nights, June 26, 27, 28 and 29, 2008. Tickets are $25.

If you have any sense you will immediately call the Trailside and make a reservation (go early for dinner; it’s a nice night out). You will not regret it: Garnet Rogers is a truly gifted musician (listen here) and to see him in a small venue like the Trailside will improve your life immeasureably.

Alas I’ll be in Copenhagen for the duration, so won’t be able to make it out myself. Which means there’s one more seat for you…

Hi Peter,

My favourite nugget gleaned from stage patter was Leonard Cohen’s advice for young musicians, “Never make any important decision when you need to pee”.
