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. 

Kilkenny and Dublin August Gigs

Posted on 29 Jul 2015

“The Kilkenny Gig has been postponed and won’t happen this Friday unfortunately. Sorry for any inconvenience. The Whelan’s concert is still on For Tickets Click here!”

I’m delighted to be heading down to  Cleere’s in Kilkenny, to do a double headliner gig with Helena Byrne on the 21st August and then in Whelan’s on  the 23rd. It’d be great to see you there so, do spread the word and bring a few friends as they’ll be great nights of music. At the moment the way to get tickets for the cheaper price is to go to Helena’s tickets page here.

21st and 23rd August gigs!
