musing of the morning: i wonder did PM change to DM in order for the service providers to avoid issues over lack of privacy

while on tour, i sometimes take the camera along and point it at the artists we're touring with... here is one such occasion...
a few songs from the wonderful Rhob Cunningham. they are from his Sydney show with Wallis Bird a couple of years ago and, as chance would have it, he will once again be on the bill with Wallis in Birr in september. the last of the songs in this here video features myself and Tracey Kelliher singing some harmonies :)

De dublin à bruxelles...
Ce prochain concert est quelques chansons d'une première partie qu'on a fais avec Villagers au Bota à Bruxelles en formation reduite acoustique en 2013.
This next concert is a few songs from a show we played opening for Villagers at the Botanique in Bruxelles with a reduced acoustic trio setup in 2013.

Fri 13.8 @ 20h CET, a Floatinghome concert will appear here.
Fond memories of our shows at Botanique: walking through the glass house running the length of the venue; don't push the trolly into the fish pond; garden running below rounded steps on the left - hours sat there listening to soundchecks, contemplating the statues of historical or mythological situations; past the bar, through the double doors into the dark of the Orangerie. welcome - the evening may begin!

This SATURDAY JUNE 12TH at 20H CET, i will premiere a short 15-minute, three-song bit of concert from 2006 Dublin.
It's 3 folkey songs filmed in Bewleys Oriental Room. These songs aren't on any of our albums and, as far as i can remember, weren't recorded at any other time. The first song features Christophe Capewell playing his violin.
The show will appear at the address on the other side of this picture on saturday evening at 20h!

i'm not sure where to address my gratitude for the support we have been receiving during the lockdowns. the german government have been great at helping us freelancers tread water, not to mention our wee community of friends and all at karakter who have been the best at keeping vibes and info flowing... thanks :)
for those here not yet in the know: ueberbrueckungshilfe-unternehm
happy springing on this one year anniversary of last concert with carefree audience! this spring is for making new music :)

I love playing this song on tour with Sam Vance-Law... During the lockdown, we have been recording an ep of four songs from the german scene of this era - it will be released on the 4th of march :)
This first song from it is eisbär, originally recorded by grauzone in 1980. Fun !

Something about snow
wraps itself well in haiku:
world around unshown.

12.1.21... i feel as though i have mentioned this date on many a stage before many a show !

I can't believe this is ten years ago! One of my favorite band sessions captured in snowy dublin by Stephen Mogerley.
Filmed in the house where i grew up, the day after our show at the Cobblestone. I was home to spend christmas with my family. The band joined me for the first few days so we could play some shows. Musicians: Fabrice Bihain, Simon Beriaux, Augi Dethier, Remy Lehembre and myself, aidan.
