Anthony John Clarke, who has won many awards for his albums and live shows since bursting onto the scene in the 1990s, performs at the club on Saturday March 4.

Clarke, from Northern Ireland, is widely regarded as one of the best musicians on the folk circuit and is a brilliant storyteller in between songs too.

“He is someone I’ve been trying to persuade to appear for ages,” said Steve Canavan, who runs the club.
