Jeff Finlin in the BAG tonight

Those of you who have been attending the Ballymore gig since it's earlier days, will likely have seen Jeff Finlin perform in the Ballymore Inn many years ago, in the early-mid noughties, writes Roy Thompson of the Ballymore Acoustic Gigs.

You won't need me to tell you that he is considered by many to be one of the finest songwriters to come out of America in decades, or that his performances are powerful, engaging, and memorable. You will be aware that his lyricism is akin to that of a great novelist, and that his guitar style is rhythmic and deceptively straightforward.

So, you will know that you won't want to miss Jeff's return to Ballymore this evening, Monday 28 September, when he'll appear in Mick Murphy's Bar. Doors open at 8:30pm; gig starts at 9pm sharp. Clive Barnes sits in, on guitars, and will add hugely to the depth of the sounds you'll hear.

Those of you who have not yet seen Jeff Finlin live, should take this rare opportunity to see him in Ireland. You may already know his music, as 'Sugar Blue' featured in the Hollywood movie, 'Elizabethtown'.
