A Cultural Note (Barry)

Another demonstration that my cultural knowledge of Ireland (of which I am a citizen) is only skin deep.

The below banner, which recently made its way into our house in Listowel, announces:

A Tribute Show to the Carpenters
(and on the back:)
The songs of this brother and sister duo are some of the finest ever written, they are still widely recognized as simple but extremely special. Their music has continued to attract a fan base throughout four decades...

...The Carpenters enjoyed massive album sales in Europe and Ireland and now for the first time ever, an Irish production company has put this wonderful show together. Not only is it a musical tribute, but it tells a story, which brings the audience into the world of this talented but misunderstood individuals. ...

...Yesterday Once More will be touring Ireland in the early Spring. Bookings taken at your local theatre box offfice. For further details....[and below it, an extensive listing of venues in many good-sized Irish towns (including Listowel): Roscommon, Cavan, Longford, Letterkenney, ...Naas]."

"venues in many good-sized Irish towns, including Listowel"

*ahem* This, Barry, of course begs the obvious question...
