SKETCHES by Walter Schroeder

Corinna Schroeder-von Frihling’s book “SKETCHES by Walter Schroeder” presents a series of entertaining sketches from music sessions at the pub THE ROADSIDE TAVERN in Lisdoonvarna during the years 1998 – 2003.

This book takes readers on a stroll down memory lane. Walter Schroeder loved to sketch people, especially musicians, while enjoying a pint of Guinness and a glass of Jameson at the same time. He left us more than 500 sketches. Getting around by bicycle, our radius was quite small, so  most of his drawings originated in one of three pubs: The Roadside Tavern in Lisdoonvarna, O’Conner’s and McGann’s in Doolin.

This book features 83 sketches from sessions at The Roadside Tavern in Lisdoonvarna, a short historical background of the pub, words from one of the featured musicians and a short biography of Walter Schroeder. “SKETCHES by Walter is the perfect book for all readers that love both art and music.
