Irish Music Night at the Alberta

Irish Music Night, originally uploaded by Pig Sty Ave.

A rare night out. Met up with Alexander, Ian and Oli at the Alberta club in Jarrow for the "Irish Music Night" which takes place on the last Thursday of every month.

Actually, it's not just Irish music. Last night there was some Cajun, Woody Guthrie and even Dylan - so I suppose it's really a folk club. A proper one, like folk clubs used to be. Last time I went to a mainstream folk night, it was like being in church. There was nothing too reverential last night.

My project of getting a photographic record of the people of Jarrow is beginning to take shape.
