This weekend in the Tuns and the Schooner

Good bands at both The Tuns and the Schooner this weekend. Tonight I’ll be at the schooner from six watching the Happy Cats’ Marty Craggs and his unexpected visitors, then off to the Tuns to see the brilliant Romeo’s Pistol.

Tomorrow it’s Bessie and the Zinc Buckets at eight for me at the Schooner (outside stage), then up to the Tuns to see the brilliant Prism Pink Floyd.

Sunday it’s 50s Rock n roll outside the Schooner with the Doggone Daddies at five, then up to the Tuns at eight for the awesome Michael Rolf and his jam with the band.

Come and keep me company people.
