Al Diesan

Normally Al Diesan arrives on the Thursday for the DylanFest on the Lough.

However, he decided to arrive a day earlier this year.

He arrived earlier today picked up by Brendan Donaghy who has been to every DylanFest and brought to Moville in style.

I’m told that he has been in Rosatos.

DylanFest on the Lough

There’s only a day to go now before the DylanFest starts.

It opens on Thursday night with Al Diesan playing in Rosatos.

That’s become the traditional gig that kicks off the festival.

Opening DylanFest night

Thursday night is a great night at the DylanFest on the Lough.

It’s like a reunion for those who haven’t seem each other since last year and it’s also a ‘hello’ night for those who have come to the DylanFest for the first time.

It’s a lovely relaxed night – and all while listen to Europe’s top Dylan act, Al Diesan.

Bring it on!

Update 27/8/15

I spent a couple of hours in Al Diesan and his wife’s company in Rosatos last night.

It’s generally reckoned here that he doesn’t speak much English but I found that both he and his wife could understand me quite well if I spoke slowly and clearly and pronounced my word endings.

We were able to have a good three-way conversation for a couple of hours like that.

Al told me that he has a new costume change this year, saying only that the new outfit is black.

He will reveal all tonight (I mean reveal his new outfit).
