Video from last Friday

Jimmy put up a video from the Bierhaus gig on Youtube. The track is “Jump Don’t Jump”, and it’s on the album. Which is being released….some time???? Need to get the house in order in that regard.


Just had a lovely few days out west. And back in Ireland. Ah yes, killing the planet, one Ryanair flight at a time. But yeah, it was a lovely trip out to Connemara and Galway city. I was recording a few songs for Ceol ar an Imeall, a weekly music programme on TG4. On Friday night, I was lucky enough to play in the Bierhaus in Galway. It was a Community Skratch gig that I kind of muscled in on. The music sandwich had a glorious landscape filling – we drove off out into the wilds, climbed The Diamond in Letterfrack (well, I’m a bit starved for slopes in The Netherlands), and went around Lough Mask and Lough Corrib. Great fun altogether.

Not so much fun, however, the 2 a.m. bus from Galway to Dublin airport for a 7 a.m. flight. I swore I’d never say “I’m getting old” but it fairly knocked the stuffing out of me. Getting ready for more of the same this weekend though.
