.Housed in a 1940’s gas station, it’s easy to “fill up on memories” here at Station 66. Enjoy a bite from our homemade food menu featuring all-American classics and enjoy an old-fashioned, glass-bottled soda out of our vintage, 1940’s Coke machine. Have fun checking out the store’s original gas station artifacts and be sure to enjoy our huge side yard with picnic tables, cornhole games, our giant ice cream cone, and plenty of room to roam and explore!#nature#newsong#harvest#newirishmusic#newfolk#newmusic
I performed this at last weeks Live Stream and thought why not put it on Spotify for you all to listen to.

Milwaukee here we come! Delighted and a little nervous to be going to Milwaukee Irish Fest for a set on Sunday at 12.45pm. Sorry to hear that the Irish contingent can’t be there this year due to covid restrictions. Looking forward to taking in the craic beforehand. And maybe hearing The Byrne Brothers singing a new song I wrote for them in Irish. Croí in Éirinn.
So a few years back three Danish students came to Dublin and found me and my music. They were inquisitive enough to make this mini-documentary. And they were a lot friendlier than I thought Vikings were!
