Music for Spring at Blackthorn and Willow
The first of our two musical events in April was on the afternoon of Sunday 9th April: we opened from 2.00 to 5.00 for live music from 2.30 provided by part-time resident of Glenarm, Tim Dornan, on bassoon, with Kristine Healy on flute – who came across from Manchester for the occasion – and Gareth Lewis from Belfast on keyboards.
Tim, Kristine and Gareth played a selection of classical and baroque pieces as well as some jazz and more contemporary numbers. The appreciative audience thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to hear some excellent music played in a small intimate venue.
Our second event will be this Sunday 30th April, when Rowan Leslie, an Irish fiddle player currently living in Glasgow, and local guitarist, Gregory Gault, will be here playing a range of traditional dance tunes and slow airs.
He will be joined by other local musicians and they will be playing from 2.30 onwards.
Blackthorn and Willow will be open from 2.00 to 5.00.
