JJ Murphy’s Night: 6.00pm Tuesday

Dec 28, 2009 No Comments by

Bansko Blog night out… hits JJ Murphy’s on Tuesday 29th December! And I’ve just had some good news from Shelly, Murphy’s manager, and from the well known Bavarian long time local, Frank Nadler…  that “Star Merak” (“Old Zest”) perform in Murphy’s on Tuesday, around 6 p.m. Please come, enjoy and say hello…

Traditional Bansko Choir And Rakia

“Star Merak” is a male Bansko choir established more than 20 years ago. Bansko has more than 500 original (from only Bansko) songs. Frank’s friends sing these old traditional songs in the typical local way, with the aim to preserve these gems that are not written down anywhere. They hope to hand them, and the Bansko spirit, down to future generations. Frank says “They are my anchor in Bansko.” And the choir feature on his Bansko film “Mein Bansko”.

Frank goes on to say “Foreigners will have a chance to meet the choir and listen to their magical music at JJ Murphy’s between around 6 and 8 pm. We will bring some homemade rakia (free to try) and some homemade Bansko specialities, but am not sure for how many people they will last… It will be like a temporary bridge between two cultures.”

Shelly and Gary run this Irish bar, and this Murphy’s will feel very familiar to anyone who haa been to Sofia’s Murphy’s. Located just near The Lion and Perun Hotels, it’s an easy walk… It’s sure to be a fun and entertaining early evening.

Snow Reports

I’m retweeting comments on twitter.com/bansko. So please check there and web cams for the latest. Its snowed on the mountain last night, temperatures have dropped below zero. Today is reported as quite okay.
