I virtually got transported to Kildare every moring at 8.30 my time via zoom for the last week. I was singing some songs Oxygen 21 (Ocsaigin 21) World On Our Shoulders (An Domhain Ar Ár nGuailli’), Cuir and Long ag Seol and Salley Gardens and explaining the main processes of Climate Change as gaeilge and in English. The student’s were good sports with lots of great questions and although some weren’t allowed to sing along because of covid restrictions we still had fun.
Over the weekend the Motor City Irish Fest happened here in Detroit and it was great to perform on stage on a number of occasions
over the weekend. I had a few different sets which was fun including singing acoustically in the old colonial buildings on the festival
grounds for the ladies teas. It was nice to get a cuppa too! The finale was good craic onstage singing Luka Bloom’s You Couldn’t have come
at a better time and the parting glass with lots of the local Detroit musicians and The Byrne Brother’s who were great and closed out the festival.
I am delighted to have two full sets at this years Motor City Irish Fest this coming weekend. Well done to the organizers for getting it up and running coming out of the Covid situation. With so many folks here in Michigan now fully
vaccinated it’s been great seeing people’s faces again in the shops(stores:)) and hopefully we’ll have a fun festival.
I’ll also be playing a set in the Childrens tent on Sunday at 6.30 so that should be good craic too.
I’m performing at 2 to 3pm on Saturday and at 4.45 to 5.45pm on Sunday both in the Gaelic League Tent.
