So yesterday I took part in the opening of an exhibition of works from the Awash With Colour project playing two songs of mine in the Iontas Theatre Castleblayney Ireland via zoom. Lots of great arts songs and poetry all bouncing off each other. Worth going to see. It’s on til 11th January. My song Keep a trickle flowing was interpreted by Bernhard Gaul through a lino-print and I was inspired by Anne Marie Savage’s wonderful artwork to write “Where Does the Light Come from?” Thanks to AAEX and to Dara MacGabhann and Moposogs Monaghan for all they do! Listen to the radio interview I did with Dundalk FM and Bernhard Gaul where we discuss the project https://moposogsaaex.files.wordpress.com/…/20211021_e…

You can now buy the Cd of the Christmas Album Christmas Is With Us (Tá An Nollaig Linn) The Digital version is also available through the widget below. Or through the albums TAB above. Any questions let me know!
Conceived, written, recorded and mastered by myself in 13 days in Dec 2020. I began to write the songs for this Christmas Album
in a hospital carpark due to Covid restrictions in Michigan as I was waiting for my wife’s procedure to be completed. (All went well
thankfully. So what brought on the Christmas Songs? It’s been a few years since I wrote a Christmas Song, (Some of you
might remember Christmas Wings?), so in the back of my mind I guess I was looking for angles to tackle the subject. And then in
the course of a few days the concepts came out and were developed in the studio with overdubs etc. I wasn’t sure if all five new
songs would make the cut but I’m proud of them all in their own ways so I hope you like them. It’s important for me to be as truthful as I can about
my beliefs and I didn’t want to do a one dimensional Christmas album. As I mention in one song “I’m not sure if I believe in
Christmas” but that doesn’t mean I can’t join the chorus and enjoy this traditional celebration. I hope this collection of Christmas
songs gets you in the spirit of Christmas and makes you think about your connection with it.
