It’s been a busy couple of weeks!  

The launch gig happened on the 30th October in the Chocolate Factory!   It went better than I could have expected! There was a huge crowd there, and I was blown away by the support on the night!  The amazing Dermot Kennedy opened the night, before I decided to start the gig the way I normally would, singing with my friend Mark Geary.  We did a few songs, before I did a few solo numbers.   I was then joined by the beautiful Nicole Maguire for a couple of songs, and then James Cramer of Tupelo joined us.  I finished off the night with a full band set – joined on stage by the inimitable Graham Hopkins, superb Lorcan O’Dwyer and incredible Steven McCann.  Simon Peare took some lovely shots the night of the launch gig.

I’ve since played in The Loft In Carlingford,Phoenix FM, Peter McVerry Trust Youth Cafe, a Private House Concert and The Ballymore Acoustic Gigs!  

Stay tuned for more! 🙂 gx
