Everyone's reforming. I blame Luther!
And now it's the turn of Belfast folk group Barnbrack.
I've fond memories of going along to the Arts Theatre to hear them work through a familiar set of songs including Belfast, Mickey Marley's Roundabout, Shhht the Fly and an irritatingly catchy Alphabet Song (interspersed with nursery rhymes.
(For those who weren't around to remember, the Arts Theatre was run by Belfast City Council and was across the road from the entrance to Botanic Station on Botanic Avenue. Funding difficulties led to its closure, news stories covering the sale of its seats,
and eventually the building was knocked down though the exterior still remains.)
This morning's Belfast Telegraph reports that after a six year break, they'll be back on stage this summer to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Alex Quinn's ballad Belfast (lyrics and chords). In the meantime, the YouTube links in the song titles above can stir your memories.
