Malones Live Music (Live Music Seven Nights A Week)

By | Published on Friday 12 August 2011

Last week I was in a pub having a quiet drink when a band suddenly announced itself and started blaring out what I would describe as ‘Dad-Rock’. Said quiet pint was ruined and most of the customers left. So, despite my reservations about bands playing in pubs, I found myself in Malones this week, and was pleasantly surprised. On this particular night, live music was delivered by Scottish fiddle band Muckle Fugga, who played a two-hour set of traditional Celtic music and created a jovial atmosphere of toe-tapping fun. Rather than being the main event, the bands seem to provide background music to the busy pub. If you are looking for a drink and a wee jig, this is your place.

Malones Irish Bar, 5 – 29 Aug, times vary, free, fpp211.
