    Isosceles, Pat Abernethy and Dave Marsden, return to their Irish roots for this intimate, musical evening - Pat from Belfast and Dave from Dublin. You can expect some well-known songs, some you may never have heard of, but they will all reflect the Irish spirit in its many forms - nostalgia, romance, emigration, politics, sentimentality, loss, regret, humour etc. The songs have all been selected because they say something that resonates with Pat and Dave musically and lyrically. Between songs you will also be regaled with stories from their days in Ireland throughout the years. The song selection will include those either written or sung by the likes of : Paul Brady, Tommy Makem, The Furey Brothers, Christy Moore, Brian Kennedy, Bagatelle, Pete St. John, Shane McGowan, Phil Coulter, Mary Black, Jim McCann, Van Morrison, Val Doonican, Richard Thompson, Dolores Keane, Christy Hennessy, Horslips, Jimmy MacCarthy, etc...Enjoy.
