Hugo Duncan: All about the money

By Hugo Duncan

There's never a dull moment in the world of country music, it seems.

While travelling through Omagh the other day I stopped at a shop and encountered a member of a band whom I had known in former years.

I had been aware that the band were maybe not enjoying the best of good fortune lately but before I had time to make conversation, your man told me: "At least we didn't lose any money in July."

I replied that this was something to be thankful for given it was well-known that the good weather and ongoing festivals had affected lesser venues but he came back at me as quick as a flash: "No, it was because we didn't play any gigs!"
