Grammys 2017

So excited to see an album I played on nominated for a Grammy this year.

I had the pleasure of playing Bass on Celtic Woman’s album Destiny which is up for an award in the “Best world music album” section alongside Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Yo Yo Ma & the Silk road ensemble, Anoushka Shankar & Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, very distinguished company indeed. Good luck to all, especially Gavin Murphy for asking me to play on it, thank you.

Cheers, James B

Another time, another place

A friend sent me this photo of a surfboard made by David Wray and myself in another life….well in 1984 I think!
We were under the illusion that we could actually make a living out if building surfboards in the west if Ireland back then. If only it was now 🙂
