Bodhrun Players

At the Galway pub in Lorient on a Wednesday night musicians gather, it is a free and very fine evening of music, mostly Irish with the heart beat of the Bodhrun. People sing of being far from home, in a land that does not belong to them. A feeling that I recognise and enjoy. Someone asked me last night why I lived here, I think that is one of the reasons, I like being an outsider it pulls things into unexpected focus.
