So I took a wander from 10 and a half mile in Southfield to five mile in Redford all part of the sprawl that is greater Detroit, to find CRB studios which are tucked away just down the street from Murphy’s Coney Island and from the AOH another centre (or center? ;)) of Irishness in Detroit, to meet Pat Johnson once again for his show The Irish Music Cafe. He went Live on Facebook for a version of Caledonia. Even though I’m low carb I had one of Charlie’s scones with my cuppa tea that Pat sorted out for me ! So I was in my element. Listen to the full show below.
I was chatting with presenter Tristan Rosenstock in Ireland earlier for his show An Cúinne Dána on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta
The show will air at 10.30am Irish time on Saturday moring and will feature a gaelic version of my song Beauty in the making,
for which there will be a video and audio tomorrow.
Bhíos ag labhairt le tristan Rosenstock in Éirinn níos luaithe inniú don chlár An Cúinne Dána ar RTÉ RNaG. Craolfar an clár sin
Dé Sathairn seo agus beidh amhrán nua, Áilleacht sa Chruthú. Is leagan i ngaeilge de Beauty in the Making.
For those who will be in Dublin city on Culture Night 23rd September, I’ll be performing some of Lucinda Jacob’s poetry for children through song in Dublin Castle in conjunction with RTÉ and Poetry Ireland. So that’ll be a fun project from 5 to 6pm.
Then at 8pm in the Unitarian Church on Stephen’s Green, I’ll be performing with my friends of The Gospel Project. There’s so much on around the country and Dublin City that night, I do hope you all get some culture in wherever you are.
Here’s a video which shows a few of the singers from Culture Night including Aoife Scott, Fiach, Lisa Lambe, Simon Morgan and myself singing Dylan’s The Times They Are a Changing with The RTE Concert Orchestra. I had a ball performing with Stephen James Smith and Aoife Scott earlier and with Cathal Quinn in St. Patrick’s Mental Health Services even earlier in the evening.
And for those with time to listen, here is the link to RTE’s Arena radio broadcast in full from Friday night:
You can catch Stephen James Smith followed by Stephen and me doing An Irish Airforceman Foresees his Death by Yeats, followed by Aoife Scott and me doing a duet Do Mhuirnín Ó starting at the 1 hr 12 min 30 second mark. But really, it’s ALL AMAZING! “The Times They are a Changing” is at the 2 hr 35 min mark too, which was used on the promo video.
Here’s the link to the radio interview interview I did on Saturday in Newstalk 106-108 fm with Orla Barry It’s in the last quarter of the second part of the Green Room show. I sang We All Own The Sky and An Nasc Nua live in the studio. We discussed my Climate Change Songs Workshops and the concert I have this Friday in The Unitarian Church. Tickets for the concert are available here
