On Thursday 15th October, Inis Oirr played their first gig since the summer holidays in a newly organised bar at The Club, Abu Dhabi. The stage was moved to the end of the room opposite the bar which made the whole atmosphere different. A number of people commented on how much clearer the sound was.
A large crowd enjoyed the many tunes and songs. Mick sang ‘The Devil and the Widow” for the first time. It got a great reception from the people who were listening carefully to the words! Fiodhna, Marianne and Ged all played solos during the gig. Fiodhna played The Foggy Dew on the low whistle, Marianne played a Scottish selection on the fiddle and Ged played a selection of jigs on the banjo. This added a new dimension to Inis Oirr’s repertoire.
A big thanks to Steve and all in the club for making such improvements to the venue. Looking forward to the next gig on the 5th November.
