Sorry Patsy but even that won’t work for the Irish team. I tried to get Christy to come and sing the national anthem live in NZ for the last world cup but he wouldn’t so we all know what happened! Go the ABs. Still gonna make it to see you live Christy and still loving your music.
What a way to send the Irish team off to the World Cup, with your sweet notes ringing in their ears.. I’m sure each and every one of them really appreciated it.
Mr Schmidt really is the ultimate Manager……Hopefully they can go on and do the business…..and who knows, but maybe another “Joxer” could be born !!!!
I´ve just want to say thank you for all the wondeful gigs I was enjoying over the years.I´ve seen you in Berlin 3 times, Letterkenny and Athlone, just to mention a few. I´m sorry that I won´t be able to visit one of your gigs in September, even though I´m in Ireland at the time.Maybe it will work out next year.
Many greetings from Berlin!
thank you for listening and writing….hope you have a good trip
A mighty couple of nights we had in The Kingdom and the Rebel. Two beautiful settings for a gig. Hot and high energy in Ballyroe and a kind of calm elegance easing into a beautiful gig in Glengarriff . Two gigs …three wizards . . . and audiences captivated on both nights.
There can,t be many drives in the country to compare with going through Molls Gap into Kenmare and on to Glengarriff…. Gers nerves were well shot by the time we landed at the Eccles Hotel but the journey was worth it just to hear you sing ” the First Time ever I saw your Face” and sure it’s never too early in the year for a Fairytale or a Folktale , both perfect.
Thanks to all involved….If Carlsberg did tour guides there,d only be one Rose for the job !!!
we left Tralee on Sat, I was looking forward to the spin for tis surely one of the most beautiful journeys, I shut my eyes as we skirted Killarney and did not wake up til Glengarriff…I missed it all ( the rugby match on the radio too!)
One night, spending an evening on youtube with you Christy, I came across a Bobby Sands biography
Lest we forget
Thanks for a fantastic nite in Glengarriff last nite .Another night to remember.A great crowd super sound and a music Icon. What more could we ask for .Thanks again Christy.
sound Dave..good to see you last night
Many thanks for a cracking night in Glengarriff.Everyone had a great evening. First time we’ve seen you live, definitely not the last. See you again soon!
you keep comin back and we’ll keep playin
Christy, I was most disappointed to miss you all at Glengariff. I see you were fab. We have just returned from 4 days in Clare to see John Prine in Ennis. We travelled the length and breadth from Kilrush to Lahinch and Gort, with a short sojourn to Galway city and Salthill where we attempted to promenade in spite of ourselves. John Prine was himself and the same as when I saw him at the Finsbury Fleadh many years ago. His solo Sam Stone was very moving. As he does not play often we were very lucky to see him in Ennis. Glor is a lovely venue and the audience very appreciative and respectful. I hope you are having a glorious summer. xx
happy travels Anuk…John is a great troubadour who deserves all the respect and love that flows his way….
He’s still looking!!!!!
Thanks for dedicating Black is the Colour to Sally Anne and great gig, we’re both hero’s tonight! Enjoy the bridal suite!
I love that Hotel…like a relic of auld decency…they knew where to build them…all the prime sites….the Earl of Bantry probably supped a few sherries here on the way out to his “hunting” lodge …that was a grand gathering last night…listeners in from New York, Germany, Newport, Moulnaskehagh, Ballylickey, Allahies,Tralee, Clonakilty,Rathoora,Donegal, The Shortgrass,….it was a rare thing to finish a gig with “Burning Times”, to hear soft and gentle singing on the chorus “Isis,Astarte,Diana, Hecati,Demeter,Kali, Inarna” ….great requests too..”Folktale” from Germany, “Black Colour” from Wales, “Fairytale” from New York with my Brother Andy’s voice ringing out in the room… then into the Van and we bate it back to Bertigrad to shout for the Lily Whites in Croke Park, the echo of the gig still ringing in my ears… “If I get an encore, I go home feeling like a King”
Two great nights under the belt. Heading home hoarse, happy and grateful for the honour of playing to such tuneful and appreciative listeners
Thanks again, the lyrics in Oblivious ring true to what has gone on in this country over the last few years. I have checked out Mick Blake’s video on YouTube, was unreal to hear you singing it with such passion!
Good on you Ado, keep coming back, and tell ’em all in Castlelyons that we were askin for ’em….Watergrasshill, Rathcormack,Fermoy….watch out for the Bailiffs……Did Flatley ever get the Rhino Horn back?
Thanks to all of ye for a great night last night in Tralee, and again in Fermoy 2 weeks ago. Best of luck in Glengariff tonight.
Loved the Contender, and Oblivious, along with everything else. We’re ye recording a DVD last night?
there is a documentary being filmed about the songs…it will be an ongoing process over the coming months…there may very well be a DVD as well depending on how it all emerges …you are the first one to comment on Mick Blake’s song “Oblivious” which we are now covering…Ive been invited to sing it on “The Marian Finucane” next Sat morning on RTE Radio 1…..I’m looking forward to that…Mick Blake is a brilliant song writer , check him out on YouTube…
Dear Christy, thank you for returning to Tralee and for such a powerful performance, paying tribute to Christie Hennessy, both his work and his fine statue and including the songs like Casey and Brendan Voyage that represent who we are, as well as the references to our sporting heroes. You know your audiences so well and know how to reach out and make those relevant and local connections with your listeners. Bright Blue Rose was very special. Haste ye back. Go raibh mile,mile maith agat. Beir bua agus beannacht. H
Great to have found a room in Tralee where the gig is welcomed……that was a great audience last night and the family who run Ballyroe Heights could not have been more accomodating.Does anyone recall the Anti-Nuclear Roadshow coming to Tralee in 1979 ? I think it may have been in the CYMS hall…other venues I recall in the Town include Horans, Benners,The Brandon and ,of course, The Dome which I did twice….an experience never matched nor forgotten. I attended a Kerry match there in the 80s. Myself and Tom McCarthy from Annascaul. Páidí, Mikey Sheehy and Tim Kenneally were playing the same day but there was porter involved and I’m a bit hazy about the rest
