Raglans at Workmans Club
Slim Pickins at Workmans Club
Saturday brought a slightly more laid back vibe. The tone in the Workman’s Club was set by Raglans who played a pared back acoustic set, being a Raglad down. On much earlier than billed, I caught about 2/3 of the set and it was a pity there wasn’t a bigger crowd there to see it. These lads are a really talented bunch who are definitely going places, and it’s a treat to catch them in smaller venues while I can.
Slim Pickins brought the roots to the Rhythm and Roots festival, with a deep south bluegrass sound that makes the Irish accents all the more surprising! While not my usual taste, I enjoyed their set and their harmonies were nothing short of lovely.
Last up for me were Nathan Conway and the River Valley Band, who were a pleasant surprise. Loved their sound, and having picked up the album on my way out, they’ve been added to my list of bands I’d like to try to see again.
