After recording this record in Switzerland last year with Brendan, we decided to launch it around Ireland in April of this year. With the help of Brendan’s dad we booked a few shows, and hit the road!
We kicked things off in Dublin – to an almost full house in the Cobblestone. Thanks to most of our Fund It campaign supporters and friends for coming out for the night. My friend Andy Sheridan came along to take some photos on the night – you can check them out here!
Then it was off to Clare, for a stint on Clare FM early in the morning on the Friday (once we got my car jump started by my friendly neighbours!), followed by a lovely session with the Ennis Singers Session that evening.
The highlight gig of the weekend was the show at Brendan’s local, Kilkishen Cultural Centre on the Saturday night. Playing to a full house, of lovely locals, and some friends and family who travelled for the gig was only gorgeous! Followed by a session in the local pub, with sandwiches and profiteroles – sure what more could you ask for!
The last gig of the tour was in a favourite venue of mine – Mick Murphy’s in Ballymore Eustace. Thanks to Roy Thompson (who runs the night, but will step away at the end of this season!) for hosting us, and to the lovely audience who came out. Great to see some familiar faces in the room!
