Three women, a heart, and a couple of blokes!

Friday night was a good one! Played a concert in City north hotel with Frances Black. Also appearing were Sharon Shannon and Mary Coughlan both of who I have had the pleasure of playing with over the years as well.

Mary opened the show with a great set with James Delaney on Piano and Dan Bodwell on bass, powerful stuff and we were on second with Frances. Her son Eoghain was on guitar and daughter Aoife on vocals and I played the Chapman NS Stick (just for a change). Unnerving stuff as I never played it as a solo instrument on stage before but thankfully it all worked out fine.

Sharon was next up and did a blistering set with Alan Connor on…well everything, and then the three women (they of the heart) finished off the night with a rendition of “Let it be” and of course “A woman’s heart”.

It was a great night with a really lively crowd and I’d safely say we’ll see more of this line up again.

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 .
