Spring-cleaning and packing with the windows open and the sun streaming in. Listening to Morphamish and a gem from last December by Redmonk (which I can’t find a download link to now. Boo! But check out this and An Dord is Mó on Raidió na Life. Always a treat.)
I saw Laura Sheeranplay in Tower last Friday, just beeeeeaaautiful. Harp, accordion, ukele, double bass, guitar, live electronics, and herself. Two “proper” launch gigs will be on later in the month, in Galway on the 17th, and Dublin on the 18th. Worth a look and a listen! I’ll be outta the country by then, alas.
On the four corners of the internet, and in pretty much any conversation I’ve had in the last two days, I’m saying “Thanks, thanks and thanks again”.
The gig yesterday went great;
thanks to Laura and Steph for playing;
Aoife and Aoife who made the visuals and devised the decoration;
everyone who helped set up and make the place look great (Ed, Conor, Aoife (de Búrca), Aoife (Giles), Kiilan, Ronan, Éadaoin;
the choir (Amanda, Amy, Regan, Eileen, Mel, Emma, Sue, Holly and Sharon);
Nob and Tom for filming the show;
everyone who came and listened and clapped, some who had a pretty long journey to get to the Joinery.
And now, no internet for a week. Huzzah!!
