I have quite a busy time ahead of me in the calendar with some exciting bits of work I’m really looking forward to.
GRÁINNE BRADY & TINA JORDAN REES IRELAND DATES
On Thursday myself and Gráinne fly out to Ireland for a few gigs. On Thursday we’re playing at the Cafe Sessions in Cavan, Friday we travel to Dublin where we will be running the Cobblestone session and on Saturday we are very much looking forward to be supporting Dick Gaughan at the Seamus Ennis Centre. Check out our website for further info:
I fly back from Ireland on Sunday evening and then it is a very early start on Monday morning to drive up to Aviemore where I’ll be a tutor at the feis for the week.
LIVE MUSIC NOW SPEYSIDE TOUR
Kristan Harvey and myself are off to Speyside for 3 days and 2 nights where we will be performing 8 concerts at different venues. I’m really looking forward to this. I enjoy our Live Music Now concerts as we often play to audiences who wouldn’t normally be able to access live music, like care homes. The older audiences are usually quite entertaining and it’s a pleasure to perform for them.
THE ISLAY SESSIONS
G&T are off to Islay in November to play at the fabulous Islay Sessions. There’s a great line up for the weekend and we’re really looking forward to performing.
On top of all these exciting things I have coming up I also still have all of my regular work. I’m enjoying teaching my private pupils and am excited that I have 3 pupils entered in for their grade exams this winter. I love running two sessions a week in the Lismore Bar with Gráinne.
And one of my most enjoyable and exciting ongoing projects is my #tuneoftheweek project where I have written one tune a week for a total of 23 weeks now. I’m absolutely loving it.
