On Friday, the 15th of November, ‘The Pillar House’ in Ballinasloe welcomes top Trad group ‘Gatehouse’.
Having just released their 2nd album – ‘Heather Down the Moor’ – which is performing very well and getting some great reviews, the band are touring Ireland with it.
Gaining inspiration from the rich history and beautiful hinterland of Lough Key Forest Park, ‘Gatehouse’ was named after the ‘Tiara’ gate lodge, situated at the entrance to the Rockingham Estate near Boyle,
They are an Irish traditional group boasting an exciting line-up of experienced traditional musicians including singer Rachel Garvey, Jacinta McEvoy on guitar and concertina, John McEvoy on fiddle and mandolin and John Wynne on flutes and whistles.
Certainly Ballinasloe will be enriched for having this band perform in the town and there is no finer venue than The Pillar House’s intimate setting to enjoy this ‘not to be missed’ gig.
Tickets are only €10 and available at www.thepillarhouse.ie or by calling the venue at 090-9643939.
