Heaven Irish Tavern, Ronda. 

Free concert. 

The Howling Ramblers. 

This rockabilly group is well-established on the music scene around these parts. Tonight’s performance in Ronda is part of their current 2024 tour, which will take the band to Seville, Madrid and Algeciras, before they head off to France, Gibraltar and the UK.

This five-piece band’s name is a tribute to American blues legend Howlin’ Wolf and US country icon Hank “The Rambling Man” Williams

I’ve seen and heard this band before and shall be there in Calle Santa Cecilia, Ronda, tonight. They are good!

Donovan Keith from Texas is touring Spain. He has already performed concerts in Lugo, A Coruña, Valladolid, Madrid and Zaragoza.

He is about to play four gigs in Malaga province: Estepona, Malaga City and two up here in the Serranía de Ronda.

In the evening he will be performing at the afore-mentioned Irish Pub in Ronda

I know Donovan Keith. I met him in 2022 and again in 2023 when he performed  at the Pueblos Blancos Music Festival, which takes place every year over four days and nights in Grazalema, Montejaque, Ronda and Villaluenga del Rosario.

Donovan is talented and knows it, but he’s a super bloke. 

I intend to go to one of his concerts, probably in Jimera. Sitting in the open air and paying normal prices for food and drinks is preferable to the stuffy and cramped indoor space and very pricey drinks at the Irish Pub in Ronda. 

Go on, treat yourselves to some great, free live music. 

For those who can’t make it, I’ll report on both gigs in the REVIEWS section of after next weekend.
