Pride

Leave a comment

Went to see the film “Pride” yesterday. Probably the best I’ve seen this year, about a small group of Lesbians and Gay men who raised funds to support a mining community in the village of Onllwyn in Wales during the strike of 1984.

I had a strong interest in the story as my brother and his partner were part of the group and even my mother gets a mention in a song 🙂

It’s a happy, sad, uplifting, funny, tearful and very moving film and I would heartily recommend it.

Pride film still

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 .
