I’m flying back from Australia for the gig in Limerick in March.
Any chance of doing Joxer for my father in law Dave, his favourite song, even though he was born in England.
Also my mate Eoin from Clare who is trying to get us tickets for the Liverpool v United game the same weekend.
Oh. Mrs durkin your son is busy twerkin. CS 10
So sad! See you in 2016 then but push the guvnors to book the old river place early pleeeeese! Until then look after your good self and that Declan. Annax
Have just looked at your future gigs. Where has the Easter Southbank gig gone? Have you gone of us? We love you Christy and it’s our yearly treat – please come and sing for us… Annax
Thanks Anna,I was hoping to be on the Southbank next year. I too feel disappointed …those who organise the tours tell me that there were no suitable dates available until 2016…perhaps some other venue may be considered but I have a real grá for the RFH…..see you along the way
Well well well….you dont write..you dont phone……Myself and your mother are worried sick about you. You treat this place like a hotel etc etc. So how goes it….Havent been on for a while now…..Glad to see youre still alive and kicking. Found a happy birthday postcard you kindly sent my son Conor on his 8th birthday…..Well he will be 16 in few months……Keep the songs coming mate…..Much Love Sir Goatboy!
well me auld Puck….glad to hear you are still rooting around the mountains…winter here is very mild so far…8 to 16 in the blink of an eye….childer followed by grandchilder as life gallops on….”ah! the poor auld lousy auld earth”
Looking forward to the Welsh gigs Christy,January man Is becoming one of my favourites,Gortatogart and bright blue rose and Easter snow are a close second
at different times each of those have been at the top of the list but ,currently, “Gortatagort” reigns supreme….
Nice chat Christy – plenty of great looking gigs to look forward to to keep the dark days of Winter at bay. Found this review tonight which brought back wonderful memories of what has been my favourite gig of the year: http://www.fatea-records.co.uk/magazine/2014/MooreGrehan.html
The warmth of the Grehans, the friendliness of the people and the beautiful sea airs of Co Sligo on top of your performance made those a few days to treasure. Long may the never ending tour continue
Oliver P. Sweeney’s review of that lovely night brings it all back to mind….as we travel on down the road memories of particular nights tend to fuse together …thanks for reviving the memory of that gathering….
“And then Lord Baker ran to his darling
of twenty one steps he’s made but three
the threw his arms round the Kings young Daughter
and kissed his true love most tenderly”

Such a Big Sea. Not much now. Warning, a Canadian selfie.
there you go
I see a reference to the great Tom McHale in one of the posts, plus also nice to see mention of that great song ‘A Pair of Brown Eyes.’
Dick Gaughan played a good gig here to a small but attentive audience..
At the time I had not picked up on what you said, it was a ‘cryptic’ looking remark you’d replied to me. Happily he sang that song about ‘not singing any love songs’ and told us the story about its genesis.
some trio..Tom,Dick and Shane…
I came across your Tradconnect Songwriter showcase competition the other day. I think it’s great that having inspired these people you’re now helping to blood the next generation of talent and thereby preserving the spirit of this great nation.
Anyway, the brief struck a chord as I like so many others have been staring down the long barrel of forced emigration in recent times. It’s caused me many a restless night.
I’ve put a few words down which describe a young man struggling to understand and come to terms with this. Unfortunately though I’m no musician nor do Know any but I’d love to get my words out there. Is there any point in me firing them off in a mail?
best follow the procedure for the Tradconnect…. I am not involved in the assembly of the material
