Veeerry early start to get to RTE yesterday to appear on the Pat Kenny radio show with the talented young singer songwriter from Shannonbridge, Louise Killeen. It really makes me appreciate how much time people have to spend sitting in their cars commuting to work in Dublin every day, how early does rush hour(s) start these days, it’s no life, not for any money.



Anyway, it all went very well apart from Louise’s car getting broken into the previous night in Dublin, funny thing is they didn’t steal her golf clubs!Image

Met my friend Ronan Collins who was prepping his midday show Imageand also the legend Larry Gogan in the hallways.Image

Pat Kenny was a true gent as always and made us feel very welcome despite having a really busy schedule and reporting on the dreadful tragedy in Oklahoma, thank you Pat.Image

Louise will be appearing in the Mercantile bar on Dame street this friday 24th. with her band including yours truly on various basses, should be a great night, if the response to the last one is anything to go by, so hopefully we might see some of you there.Image

Time to do the hoovering…over and out!

I am a session bassist and contemporary composer based in Ireland, most of my studio work these days is done from my own place via Dropbox etc. I am also a member of Derek Ryan's touring band. I play Double bass and Bass guitar and most recently a derivative of the Chapman Stick, the NS Stick and several other instruments when I must :-) I have two solo instrumental albums on release called "End of a longer day" and "A small shadow" and I am currently writing and recording a series of Pictorial Audio projects comprising Text, Audio & Illustrations in collaboration with my sister Susan & her husband Vitya, inspired by special people, the unseen little folk, and other fantastic creatures that inhabit the woods, streams and lakes on this island .
