With more and more venues looking to beat the economic blues, some Dublin residences are showing others the way to go may be by not charging an admision fee.

Every Sunday, Texan slide guitarist NC Lawlor sets up shop in the front bar of Whelan’s. Lawlor has played with the likes of Jim Lauderdale, Seasick Steve and Billy Joe Shaver in the past.

Meanwhile, the Sick & Indigent Song Club continue their long-running residency at the city’s Hapenny Bridge Inn on Mondays. A new album is due soon from the collective, the follow-up to the well received “The Inistioge Folly”.
