Well Christy, nothing new in the intoxication, but I will shamelessly share none the less. Only because you are a man who will go along or not.
Eventually I got the opportunity to thank you for two magic nights in Vicar Street last week. The long wait for the gigs was well worth – now you spoilt us.
It was pure pleasure to hear so many seldom played songs as Easter Snow, Quiet Desperation, Two Island Swans, Casey … I too liked Dunnes Stores very much and Magdalen Laundries which you song so sensitively – Gortatagort was absolutely enchanting.
A very special DANKESCHOEN for Folk Tale! It is really a precious gem and it made our anniversary just perfect. We also enjoyed nice company around our tables, quite international. Except Hil and Adam there were people from Finland, Scotland, England and even an American who’s living in Germany (he told me about your Niedernhausen gig) travelling to listen to your awesome music.
Hope the Continental Chocolates are digested meanwhile and yourself, Jimmy and the crew have slimmed to function at Spanish Point. It would be fantastic if Spancil Hill gets an outing with the Trad Outfit to welcome Bealtaine.
Greetings from Bantry Bay, Traudel + Horst
Hi Christy ,
Hope you are keeping well these days, Its been like the tropics here in West Clare, not sure if we can hold on to the sunshine for the Armada gig in Spanish Point but we’ll do our best for ya , What a great night we had in Kilkee last night with Luka and O’Sahara they were fantastic. Looking forward to the gig it’s been quite a few months since our last one . If you need a perm,highlights or a head polish you know where I am haha. Have a great weekend
nostrils, eybrows and earholes all trimmed at the minute..might call by for a few extensions
I went to see yer man Declan in The Glad Cafe, Glasgow last night Christy. Himself and Vickie were marvellous and the young Irish guy David Hope is a hell of player and chanter himself. You could do worse than stick him on for half an hour to warm up the Glasgow Concert Hall brigade in October. I’ll be there front row and centre with my old friend John Griffin. I’ll be the bald headed fella shouting for Folk Tale. Only after you’ve allowed the shouting of course! Would have sent Deccie a message myself but I got rid of the Facebook and Twitter a long time ago so I’ll rely on your good self to let the man know the packed crowd in that homely wee venue last night were enthralled. I’m sure he knows.
thanks for sharing the feedback…good to read that the gig went well..remind me about FolkTale closer to October..its a beautiful piece ( from Paula Meehan) that we seldom perform…one of those gems that needs the right air
Wonderfull night at Vicarstreet last Monday, special venue. Fantastic 4 days in Dublin and a wonderful after party with Hilary, Traudel &Horst.
Hope you and the crew liked the chocolate !
Maybe we meet again in summer.
Thanks for the beautiful music.
See you Chris
we gorged upon the Belgian Choclate and the German Confections…you Continental Girls will have the Band and Crew too fat to function !!! glad you got to party on Monday night…we Senior Citizens had to rest up and be ready for Tuesday’s Gig !!
