Terrific to read the gig feedback from both sides of the lights…thanks for posting the set list.
Did you use the Atkins throughout? I probably should know, but what song is ‘Greenland’?
I hope you’ve had a good day/ post gig buzz.
all will be revealed on Nov 19th !
a new song from Paul Doran, I’ve previously recorded two of Paul’s Songs (“Natives” & “The Gardener”)
Paul sent me “Greenland” when all the world seemed to be tumbling down.Hearing it for the first time the attraction was instantaeneous. His words described how I was feeling as we flew into that scary mystery of last year.I contacted him straight away and he gave me the go ahead. Its been a challenging and fulfilling excercise ..finding my way in, getting familiar with the strange uniqueness of his song…I demoed it a year ago…then changed my approach and found a new setting….
it was extraordinary singing it the other night….the room came with me… we all floated on a picture of the sky….
Christy – absolutely great gig last night – you were on fire!!! Huge atmosphere despite the reduced crowd- everybody glad to be back at the live show – fitting too that the last live performance we saw was yourself with Declan, Jimmy & Cathal in Knightsbrook in Feb’20. Glad to be able to help you out in the middle of Sail On Jimmy too!!!!!!!!!!
Take care – thanks – stay safe

Great to be amongst a huddle of keen listeners/singers last night again..a great buzz.. loved the set mix of old and new songs.. Thank you very much for singing Allende.. your voice is strong as ever, from the Bantry Bay lows in Gortatogart to the octave raise at the end of Yellow Triangle at ease..
What a great audience…it may have been at 50% capacity but up on stage it felt like the place was jammed…such a buzz of excitement in the room…we were all so happy to be back …crew, Vicar St Staff, security, Aikens, me and my good companeros and YOU LOT..you precious listeners..ye raised the roof when it was appropriate and ye listened in silence when the songs suggested it….
