So it’s been a busy few weeks. The live video version of September 1913 appeared on The Works and then on No Country For Old Men. The first is RTÉ1’s Arts show and the latter is a recent documentary on WB Yeats which includes narration by Maria Doyle Kennedy and contributions by Colm Keegan and Stephen James Smith along with Séamus Heaney, Paul Muldoon and others. You can watch it on the RTÉ player from anywhere in the world (just make a cup of tea when the ads come on).
So “Follow the Water” written by Christine Deady and myself won the Christie Hennessy Song Contest 2012. Delighted to have been involved and over the moon to have won. It was a great evening of songs in the Brandon Hotel Tralee including a deadly set from John Spillane, which is always awesome! Check out the previous post for the link to the song on Youtube.
