  • Live tonight at the Harp Wilfried Lepuschitz, a very talented fingerstyle guitarist not to be missed.  Starts around 9.30 after the football has finished.  Be prepared for a really good night.

  • The Harp is where Highland Paddy 1 used to be.  He plays all sorts but not Canarian as far as I am aware.

  • We have been in over our last few visits and we have found it to be a bit dreary.  sorry to be negative as I am sure they try their best, but they need to jolly it up a bit.

    i totally agree. they are excellent singers.  it is worth going down for 10pm.  far, far better than a bar 'pretending' to be irish.

  • It's a very nice bar, and a good place to hide for a good pint, as it's on the wrong side of town! (Wife doesn't know it exists).

  • It is a very nice bar, with friendly staff. Did anyone make it in to see Wilfried on Tuesday.
    We were in last Friday, and Wilfried had just arrived for 1 weeks holiday from Austria with his girlfriend
    He asked if he could go up and play the guitar, and was amazing until he broke a string.
    He was invited back to play on Tuesday, but unfortunately we missed him ,as we came home at the weekend.

    i am agreeing with mags and mike and, possibly edward bear - not sure whether his culture comment was with regard to being served warm drinks or the music!
    warm drinks stopped us going in regardless of how good the music is (which it is i promise!).  but, as nobody else has commented on the drinks, they obviously have sorted out the fridges.

    oh, can we have some decent wine in there too please - there is no excuse for serving crap wine in spain.  i mean, you can get fab tasting wine for 2 euro a bottle in mercadona so we dont need to drink paint stripper guys!

  • Its what your used to, you can get 3 cartons of paint stripper for 2 euros. I add it to the Don Perrion, the champagne seems to last longer that way.

  • That's quite a gap between a responce BBW, either one great party or a terrible hangover. Hoping it's the former. Think Harp maybe a starter or pre venue location, some where to go, to go on too. Or maybe post venue  'hair of the dog', or realisation 'did I really say that/or did I really do that' , folllow up bar (yes, guilty as charged - been there many times). But still a good place to contemplate.

    maybe he needs to use backing tracks for pogues, waterboys etc. its a little hard to do with just a guitar and tin whistle? 
    he plays traditional irish music, the sort you would get in a pub in ireland.

  • Went into the Harp a couple of nights ago. About 6 people in there with an Irish bird screaming the songs in our ears from the audience so we couldnīt get to enjoy the music by the owners. She may have had a nice time the drunken woman that she was but we went in there to listen to the music not this drunken old bag from the audience

  • I can only apologize BBW, She thinks she's Kirsty MacColl! Infact I wish she was, I keep taking her down the beach by the marina and try to get her to swim out. It was my father in-law who told her she could sing, he also said that she loved me and would make a great wife. The Ba####d. Count your self lucky you never interrupted or asked her to stop, she has a foul temper. Her only redeeming feature is the ability to cook great Bacon and Cabbage. But as we eat it 3 times a day, 7 times a week, you would have to get to like it too (I don't want to get whacked with that saucepan again).

  • I was but managed to get rid of her.  I am now getting a fifty shades of grey wife sent over to me, in other words "a tie (thai) bride"

  • Does the 50 shades of grey mean she's a tie (Thai ) dyed bride.
