This coming Wednesday, July 15, 9--11:30 p.m., at Folk Night at
The Ship Pub in St. John's, Newfoundland, the headliner
will be Fergus O'Byrne.

Cover is $5, there are door prizes, there is an open
mic set between the two headline sets, and open mic
performers get a free beer. Also the kitchen is open
until 8 p.m.

Here is the blurb from http://nlfolk.com/folknight.php# :

Fergus O'Byrne became a familiar voice on radio and television from 1971
to 1983 as a member of the renowned folk group, Ryan's Fancy. He has
since followed a busy solo and freelance career, touring nationally and
internationally with Jim Payne and A Crowd Of Bold Sharemen. He was also
a regular fixture on the local scene performing for many years with
Dermot O¹Reilly. In February 2004, Fergus, as part of Ryan¹s Fancy, was
awarded the ECMA Dr. Helen Creighton Lifetime Achievement Award. This
award recognizes an individual or group who has had a profound and
lasting effect on the Atlantic Canadian music industry. In April 2005,
along with Jim Payne, he was the recipient of the inaugural Arts in
Education Award presented by the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council.
In 2010 he was recognized as Music Educator of the year by MUSICNL and
in August 2011 he was awarded the annual Lifetime Achievement Award from
the Folk Arts Society of Newfoundland and Labrador. In June 2015 Fergus
attended a conference about the Irish in North America in Connemara,
Ireland and delivered a presentation about traditional music in
Newfoundland. Along with Jim Payne he will be performing around the
Island in various communities including The Gathering in Burlington and
the Roots, Rants & Roars Festival in Elliston.
