Pleased to announce I’ll be ‘easing’ myself back into a bit of ‘live performance’ after what will have been a couple of months relaxing in the glorious weather since returning from a wonderful little tour and trip around Ireland, by playing a set of songs at me old mate Tom Martins’ ‘Tower of Song’ in Cotteridge, Birmingham on Weds 22nd Aug under the REA RIVER ROOTS promotions http://www.towerofsong.co.uk/find-us/
I’ll also be announcing some more ‘Songwriter Sessions’ @ The Wellington pub in Birmingham city centre on a Sunday afternoon…stay tuned for confirmed dates and special guests
Thanks to all that came along to the gigs in Ireland, the promoters for the bookings and all the new musicians and songwriters I connected with and the people at the gigs out to hear some original independent songwriters…it was a great little trip and massively rewarding X
Here’s a few pics etc from the gigs…first of all thanks to Sarah @ The Secret Garden Cafe – Galway 29-5-18…a lovely intimate little cafe
Thanks to Cormac Sheehan for the gig at The Friary – Cork on 31-5-18…wonderful night and great to meet Gill and Colin from Cormac’s band Twitch Jnr plus Niall Cuddy…whose song ‘I Know Fuck All’ still rings around my head …and the lovely Jacqueline and Pavlee for great support …’Cork is the centre of the Universe’
A fantastic return to Charlie Malones ‘Acoustic Club’ in Limerick on 5-6-18 and great to see old friends Eugene, Dominic and Graham…and also meet some great songwriters in the lovely Sarah Croker, Stuart Bond and Pa Barry…’a great pub to get into, a hell of a pub to get out of’
…and the last night of the tour was a very special one indeed…at Tony’s Bar – Bridgetown nr Killaloe, County Clare 8-6-18…a pub that was owned by my old mans cousin Tony who sadly passed away earlier this year and has been taken over by his daughter Rosemarie who organised a bit of a family gathering for it from my old nans side of the family… lovely to have cousins Marian and Martine along with their husbands Michael and Joe…it was a special night…and also a special thank you to Pa Barry, Stuart Bond and Mark Reilly who travelled over from Limerick to support the gig …great stuff lads
Thanks to everybody that supported the Songwriter Sessions gig at The Wellington in Birmingham yesterday afternoon with the excellent Dan Hartland as well…it was a lovely send off for the forthcoming trip to Ireland.
