Mumblin' Deaf Ro – The Ballad Of Lonesome Ray James

As the Irish Housing Market continues to unravel people are naturally beginning to tighten their belts. But wait, help is already at hand. Nope it’s not that long awaited European Central Bank rate reduction announcement but a budget friendly missive from one of Ireland’s most underrated artists Mumblin’ Deaf Ro. You see in the next couple of weeks Ronan Hession will be playing 2 gigs for the princely sums of €5 (Anseo, Sunday 2 March) and €12 (Whelans, Wednesday 5 March). How can you justify that huge leap on the second gig we’ve got kids to feed I hear you scream, well perhaps the words Adrian Crowley will cool your boots. That’s right, the genuine sound of acoustic Ireland will finally gather together on one stage in the newly decked out upstairs section of Whelans. So why not forget about negative equity for a night, your ears will thank you for it. KD
