On Wednesday the 27th of July, I played a support slot to Donal Lunny and Paddy Glackin in Beggy’s bar in Navan Co. Meath. The gig went very well and was well supported by people from surrounding area and even a few music lovers from Cavan. There are videos of my performance which I'll put out over the coming weeks. The videos were captured on a mobile phone but the sound is reasonable so I’ll put them out very soon. On the night, Paddy Glackin was struck down with post-Willie Clancy week fatigue so he didn't make the photo call, Donal was in fine form.
Sunday the 31st of July I stopped off at the Fiddler’s Green Festival in Rostrevor. The Sands family and others performed on the main street that afternoon. I met with Colum Sands on his way to his second sound check of the day and managed to say hello and get a quick photo.
