Jonathan Owens and myself getting ready for action with the RTE concert orchestra at Classical Country Roads at The Marquee inCork last night. Great buzz playing all the classic Country hits with an amazing orchestra conducted by the one and only Gavin Murphy .
Shaping up for a night with the stars with Shannonside/Northern sound in Cavan.
This autumn sees a welcome return of the legendary Ray Lynam and the Hillbillies for a reunion concert tour of Ireland. Definitely not to be missed if you're a fan of class country music. http://youtu.be/2Nkg6EJcW0o
A sorry but all too familiar sight in Ireland these days. The Hazel hotel in Monasterevan, one of our best known dancing venues, closed and boarded up.
I had the pleasure of playing in the Olympia theatre last night with Frances Black at the "stars turn out for Gaza" concert. A great night and it was lovely to meet people I have played with over the years including Paul Brady & Brian Kennedy.
