The Foggy Dew

Posted on 16 Apr 2022

It’s Easter Saturday morning and I’m taking 12 white eggs off the boil here in Michigan getting ready for decorating eggs with family later today. I just released my version of The Foggy Dew yesterday. As it’s a song that commemorates those who fought for Irish freedom over 100 years ago I thought it apt to get it out this weekend. Sinéad O Connor and the Chieftains have a wonderful version but it was Corkman and friend from Lazy Band days, Jack McCarthy who sang it in Dublin that familiarized me with it. During covid lockdown Live Stream sessions it was requested quite a bit mainly by Rory in California and also I was heavily advised to sing the “Back through the Glen” last verse which rounds the story out nicely. I also had the opportunity to visit Kilmainham Gaol a few months back which really brought home the complicated nature of the rebellion. So whether you’re enjoying real or chocolate eggs today or tomorrow take a minute to think of events in Ireland 100years ago which have made us the Irish people we are today.

Awash With Colour Exhibition launch

Posted on 10 Dec 2021

Me on my PC getting ready for the broadcast.

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…
