A new folk club is being established in Wexford by Kerry Cooke.

The club which will play its first gig in the Gaelic Bar on Wednesday, February 17, at 8.30pm is expected to thrive amid the quality musical talent that Wexford has to offer.

Playing the first gig will be the Tin Shanless band which features the talents of Benny McCarthy on accordion, John and Pip Murphy from Carrig on Barrow on mouth organ and Donal Clancy, son of the renowned Liam Clancy, on guitar and vocal. Donal is familiar to many as part of the world famous Danu band.

It is a rare occasion for a band to feature two musicians on mouth organs and demand for tickets is expected to be high within folk circles. The band have played extensively around Ireland. Admission on the night is €10 on the door and anyone who is interested in joining the folk club is urged to come along to see what the Wexford Folk Club has to offer.

The concert starts at 8.30pm.
