Patriot Hotel – Dublin – Brilliant Musicians – Exciting – Honed Craft

A friend took me to the Patriot Hotel in Dublin – near Kilmainham Gaol – (hence the name) – for a fun night out and listen to some good music.

Ireland is renowned for producing some of the world’s best musicians and this night certainly did not disappoint. As soon as you walked into the pub, you knew you were in for a fabulous night!  It was one of those WOW nights of a fabulous repertoire of classic rock by four musicians who have honed their craft over the decades. This kind of music does not need anything flashing – just sit, listen, dance and allow the music to be absorbed into your soul.

These musicians have dedicated their life to music, and it shows!

It’s always difficult to photograph musicians well in pubs – black walls – poor/mood lighting and plenty of movement – yet I did my best and captured some of my favs.

Bree Harris’s Unique voice on vocals…she certainly had a huge repertoire of classics rock songs and made them her own. Like fine wine, over time the essence of the music
