Gavin Friday performs at Pat McCabe book launch

On February 8, 2001, Gavin performed a set at the Clarence Hotel in Dublin for a Pat McCabe book launch.

Our man on the scene reported: “An hour and a half reading by Pat, followed later in the Clarence by a set by Gav that included various folk and parlour songs. Then a duet with himself and Pat of the The Stylistics ‘I can’t give you anything, but my love’ which got the whole room singing.

Shane MCGowan sang ‘Grainne Bhuil’, Jack L had the whole room singing the hymn-like ‘Old Man River’. The set was finished with Gav singing ‘Sweet Jane’.”
