The 4 of Us in the BAG

The 4 of Us play Mick Murphy's, Ballymore next Monday, 14 November, writes Roy Thompson of the Ballymore Acoustic Gigs.

With Top Ten hits like 'Mary', 'Drag My Bad Name Down', 'Fool For Temptation' from their debut album 'Song For The Tempted' (1989), and many more since, The 4 of Us are a household name in Irish music lore. So, it's a pleasure to be able to present them to you as a stripped down two-piece featuring the founding Murphy brothers, Brendan and Declan, with two acoustic guitars, and a hat-full of great songs, from their back catalogue and from their brand new record, 'Sugar Island'.

This one is one not to be missed! Doors open at 8:30pm — but I strongly advise early arrival and assembly in the lounge - this one will be busy! Admission is €15.

And finally, with the breaking news overnight that Leonard Cohen has gone to his eternal reward, I'll leave you with 'Closing Time'.
