I had the pleasure of visiting the Festival of Russian Culture in Townley Hall, Drogheda, last year (2010). It wasn’t very well publicised and most of the people there were Russian ex-pats. There were some brilliant musicians there throughout the weekend, but a highlight for me, was the performance by Oleg Ponomorov. Oleg was accompanied by Drazen Djerek and Fintan Gilligan on guitars and all three were amazing musicians and fantastically entertaining to watch. I’ll be looking forward to the festival again this year.
