ABBEY TAVERN, HOWTH

hosted by Laurence Bond and Ann Riordan (pictured above from last year)

Please join us

In remembrance of regular Declan Fay, who sadly died in the summer, here’s a song he would have sung at the Harvest session – Kris Drever with a song written by Boo Hewerdine, Harvest Gypsies, which was the title of a slim book by John Steinbeck detailing the plight of migrant workers in Depression-era California.https://youtu.be/56grtNzsRq8
