What a whirlwind the last couple of weeks have been! From Sin É to Abner Brown's Barbershop to Whelan's Folk Club to Sweeney's Dimestore Recordings to the Cobblestone Backroom Sessions, it's been an amazing privilege to play in these amazing venues, but also to share the stage with some truly talented musicians.
Folks like Jem Mitchell, Niall Thomas, Baker Jnr, Wynner, Markas Carcas, Ray Scully, Andy Delamere, Christian Collins and Mick Heslin never cease to amaze me, and are well worth the time to check them out. I was also knocked over by some great bands at Dimestore like Cult Called Man, Megacone, and She's a Beauty.
I would also like to introduce you to some new friends from the Great White North, The Stampede City Sessions. Their loss was our gain when their flight was delayed, as they came to Abner Browns Acoustic Picnic and recorded all of the performances and some interviews with the musicians. They host some pretty amazing talent on their TV show over their in Calgary, be sure to give them a look as well.
It's definitely made for an unforgettable few weeks, and I'm really looking forward to September and whatever other wonders the rest of the year has in store. Be sure to watch this space as well as Twitter and Facebook for updates on my music as well as some of my talented friends from the U.S. and Ireland. Cheers!
