Daoirí Farrell - An Góilín

Some from Daoirí Farrell’s recent solo album launch “A Lifetime of Happiness” at An Góilín, the very stage where he cut his teeth as the incredible musician he is. 

That happiness was more than evident in the performance he gave. It was as warm and beautiful a gig as I have had the pleasure to witness.

Ruby Sessions - 5th Feb. 2019

 The Ruby Sessions is an acoustic music club held weekly every Tuesday, in the intimate setting of Doyle's of College Street, for the past 19 years. Four original acts play a stripped back set in front of a completely silent candlelit room each week.

Since it's inception on April 13th 1999 the Rubys (as it's affectionately called by it's founders Niall Muckian and Conor Donovan), has hosted some of the world's biggest names, along with consistently championing the best in new and emerging talent from around the globe.

Its always a special night, and all for a good cause with the entrance fee going to help the fantastic work by the Simon Community, helping the homeless.

Last Tuesday’s entertainment was provided by Lisa Gorry, who unfortunately I missed, Niamh Keane, Junior Brother & Moon Looks On.

A beautiful night of music, in the finest of company.

FullSizeRender.jpg

It was a pleasure to help document a very special night indeed at a sold-out show in the National Concert Hall, celebrating the music of David Bowie, on what would have been his 72nd birthday as part of the Dublin Bowie Festival.

John Byrne, as usual, assembled the I Heart crack troop; Duncan Maitland, Dave Mc Guinness, Neil Dorrington, Phteven McHale & Mark Dmc, accompanied by Luke Rynne Cullen & the wonderful Trinity Orchestra, conducted by Molly Bourke, and a host of guest performers, including Shane Hennessy on guitar, Barry O’Brien, Colm Lynch, Jem Mitchell, Ger Eaton, Gavin Glass, Fiach Moriarty, Brian Gallagher, Ollie Cole, Caoimhe Barry, Jack Lukeman, Christy Dignam and very special guest, the guitar genius that is Gerry Leonard.
