Christmas Songs Radio-play

Posted on 12 Dec 2020

Lots of radio play this week which is great! Thanks to Caoimhe Ceol Ní Chathail in BBC Radio Ulster who played Tá An Nollaig Linn on Blas Ceoil on Fri. I’ll be having a long chat as gaeilge with her on the 1st January 2021 about my Irish language songs. Thanks also to Bill Marshall at Sounds Like Ireland Muskegon MI for playing Christmas True. This evening both songs are being played on The Celtic Show out of Atlanta Georgia thanks to Jon Kiger. Listen in to their shows for more great Irish music!

Christmas True

Posted on 5 Dec 2020

Happy early Christmas! I’ve two new Christmas Songs for you. Now released via Bandcamp. The first is a love song called Christmas True and the second is a note home called Tá an Nollaig Lin (Christmas is With us). Have a listen here and share if you like.

Christmas True

I’m not sure I believe in Christmas
The story of Bethlehem
The wise men the manger
The coming of a saviour
I kinda feel like a stranger

But I know that you do
Right from your foundations
And I believe in you
So I’ll join the celebrations
Christmas Annie
Christmas with you
Is a Christmas
Christmas True

I’m not sure I believe in Christmas
But I know it’s something good
Like talking with a neighbour
Doing a friend a favour
Family time together

But I know that you do
Right from your foundations
And I believe in you
Let’s join the celebrations
Christmas
Annie Christmas with you
Is a Christmas Christmas True

And it’s easy to get cynical
Cause it all got so commercial
And I’m not sure if I believe

But I know that you do
Right from your foundations
And I believe in you
Let’s join the celebrations
Christmas
Annie Christmas with you
Is a Christmas Christmas True



Cáca Milis Cabaret

Posted on 30 Oct 2020

On Saturday I’ll be doing a live zoom link-up with Ireland for the Cáca Milis Cabaret from Wexford. I have played at it a few times in the past in Dublin and Wexford so I’m delighted to get to be virtually there via the wonders of technology this time around. You can get your ticket via www.Wexfordartscentre.ie


A Wander by the River

Posted on 30 Oct 2020

So I took a wander across the train tracks, past both Biden and Trump signs on people’s lawns to find the Middle Rouge river down at Hynes park here in Plymouth and a lovely nature walk it turned out to be. The song that came to mind was Lonely River by Gene Autry so here’s some of that song for you. I hope wherever you are you are enjoying the outdoors and finding some time to spend in nature.
