    March 13th Vicar Street Gig in Memory of Tim Martin & in Aid of the Irish Hospice Foundation

    Dear Listeners,

    Christy Moore,  Declan Sinnott,  Donal Lunny, and Jim Higgins will play Vicar Street on March 13th in Memory of Tim Martin & in aid of The Irish Hospice Foundation

    Tickets on sale this Tuesday 18th December at 9am.  

    This gig will be a tribute to the late Tim Martin, our dear friend and colleague, with whom we worked closely over the past 30 years.  He was the outstanding Sound Engineer of our time.  Tim’s Family have requested that this gig be in aid of The Irish Hospice Foundation who will receive all the proceeds from this project.

    Christy writes:
    Tim Martin was the foremost Sound Engineer in Ireland. He is sadly and badly missed
    particularly by his Family but also by all of those fortunate enough to have worked with him
    across the years.  Apart from the skills and expertise apparent in his work, Tim was a good
    friend.  His attention to detail, his focus, his preparedness to catch those magic spontaneous moments gave us all great confidence in the recording process. On top of all that Tim was mighty crack!!

    Some of the acts recorded by Tim include

    Planxty, Donal Lunny, Declan Sinnott, Matt Molloy, Whipping Boy, Commitments, Mary Coughlan, Seamus Heaney, Liam O’Flynn, Terence Trent Darby, Phil Lynnott, The Corrs, The Dubliners, Other Voices, Aslan, Something Happens, The Frames, Don Baker, Thin Lizzy, The Cranberries, Sweeneys Men, Horslips, L.S.O., Bryn Terfel, Moving Hearts, Mick Flannery, Secret Garden, Paula O’Flynn, Declan O’Rourke, The Waterboys, Sharon Shannon, Frankie Gavin, The Monks of Glenstal, Clannad, Paul Brady, Daniel O’Donnell.

    This far-from-complete list came from Tim’s Family. When we first spoke to them about a gig they asked that the funds would go to The Irish Hospice Foundation.

    The Foundation came on board as did Aiken Promotions.  We plan to have a good night in memory of our Dear Friend.
