Drovers Drive Crowds to Tears



Who: The Irish Drovers
Where: Newcastle Panthers
When: Friday March 5, 1999

THE IRISH DROVERS, performing at the Newcastle Workers Club this Friday, perform foot-tapping ditties and sentimental ballads.

The quartet, MYLES, SEAN, JACKIE and LEONARD, play guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, bass, harmonica and penny whistle.

Myles says the well-known sing-a-long tunes, and a few instrumentals, include the group's specialty COUNTY DERRY, otherwise known as DANNY BOY. 'Generally songs you can cry to,' Myles told THE ILLAWARRA MERCURY last year.

'You never get a dry eye in the house when we do our version of the tune.' TE
