Week three done only four to go…seems to zip by very quickly.
Clifden in Galway on last Thursday and Friday with my old pal Nicholas Timothy, this is always a blast, just him and I. A great little combo.
Last Sunday was the Harbour Bar in Bray a quaint little coastal village near Dublin, very nice and a new bass player Andy Christ who did a great job and will sit in on a few more gigs before it’s over.
Ireland is about 500 odd K’s long, but I have done over 3000 klicks on buses and in cars since we have been here.
Frank Fracone has been my guitarist so far and doing a stellar job under some trying conditions, he also sings a few tunes and knows how to belt out a solo or two.
This week I get to play with one of my favourite guitarists in Ireland Hector Castillo on Thursday and Sunday.
Brian Hyland on bass and vox for the 3 gigs this week, be good to have him back.
I should have my old ford van back by tomorrow?!?.
Off down South this weekend, details below.
