I’m a non driver, but I gig a lot around the country. My bandmates or one of our friends usually drive us- for which I am forever grateful. Here’s a list of things I’ve learned about driving on tour.

- The later you are for a gig, the slower the traffic will be. Fact.
- In rural parts, worsening weather and road conditions make the locals go faster
- When driving home from a gig your previously under-control bladder will start shouting at you on the bleakest part of the motorway in the lashings of rain, miles from civilization Read More
We had such a good week- played a show Whelan’s to launch our album. Luke was great on the sound, Enda Roche, our erstwhile super sub, did the lights and the audience where absolutely amazing. Thanks to Ye vagabonds for opening for us. It was a real pleasure once again to have Chris O Sullivan join us on keys, he’ll be back with us in the springtime for a tour of sorts.
In the meantime we’re doing a whistlestop tour of the 32 counties on the island- starting with Ballyleague and Lanesborough (Co Roscommon and Longford) on 10/11th Oct. We’re in the cafe sessions in Chapter One cafe, Cavan town on the 22nd followed by Bray on the 24th. And then all the other counties!
