Irish Stew

Who: Ceiliah
Where: Northern Star Hotel
When: Sunday February 20, 2000

IRISH trio CEILIDH will perform on Sunday at the Northern Star Hotel, from 8pm. The group features COLIN DOUGLAS on guitar and vocals, MAL HAMILTON on piano accordion and RALPH PRIDE on violin. The Sydney-based trio boasts an astonishing song list featuring songs such as THE IRISH ROVER, SALLY GARDENS, BOULEVOGUE, RODDY MCCORLEY, KELLY THE BOY FROM KILLANE and THE TOWN I LOVE SO WELL. Chances are if there's an Irish song you'd give your lucky shamrock to hear, then Ceilidh will be able to play it.
