I had the great opportunity of playing along with Bearnagh, the Voices of Ireland and the Titanic Drums at the World Police and Fire Games Opening Ceremony at the Kings Hall in Belfast, I also on the same week performed for the Sigir Conference in Croke Park Dublin with the Upducky Band.
More recently I returned from a great wee gig in Balver in Sauerland Germany, with Blackthorn and also had a 10 day stint of Norway with Aidan Lennon and piper Tiarnan Dinkin.
I have had a great week here in Northern Ireland playing in Pairc Esler Newry, Stormont and Newry Town Hall for the Olympic Torch Celebration and at the sending of the torch to Scotland from the Port of Larne with the Upducky Band.
Had the honour to play a series of great concerts with Crooked Jack Ireland at the Irish Embassy in Riyadh specially for a number of functions organised by the great and helpful Irish Society in Saudi Arabia,
Just a note to all to say, that I had a great 10 days gigging in Oslo along with Aidan Lennon and Kevin Shields and it was brilliant as usual.......too many of you to mention by name but TUSEN TAK and we will see you in the near future again!!
Brendan and myself launched the CD at Fiddlers Green Festival in Rostrevor. The launch was a great success and judging by the comments on the guestbook page those of you there really had a good night....Anyway we are organising a tour later this year to bring the CD out to you and I will keep you informed of the dates of the forthcoming tour....
