A horse trudges slowly into a pub and orders a drink.
“Evening” says the barman, “why the long face?”
Since we’re minutes away from Ayr Racecourse it’s hardly surprising that we love a classic horse joke. It’s no surprise either that we love to get involved in the spirit of race day.
After their outstanding performance last time we’re spoiling you to a double helping this time. You can catch them live at The Newton Arms this Saturday AND Sunday from 8pm until late. And, if your horse doesn’t come in at the races don’t worry because this is a FREE event.
The O’Cajunals are one of Scotland’s busiest bands. Each year they play over 120 gigs with performances at various festivals such as Lomond Folk Festival and Glasgow’s West End Festival.
Over the past six years the band has evolved from a duo featuring Joe Quinn and Rod Massey to a four or five piece band. Through the years nearly 42 musicians have played alongside Joe and Rod.
The O’Cajunals are a joy to hear and their infectious style will have The Newton Arms bouncing from the first note. They play a mix of traditional music from Scotland, Ireland and Louisiana with a bit of Johnny Cash and Bob Marley for extra spice. You can expect vocals, guitar, fiddle , cajon, bass, mandolin, cittern, melodeon, penny whistle and mouth organ.
So, whether you’re looking for somewhere to go after a day at the races or you just fancy a night out come and catch The O’Cajunals at The Newton Arms this weekend.
Friday 19 September and Saturday 20 September
