As we come closer to the end of an intresting year I think back back on some of the things that I done in 2010, My biggest event was a move from Vancouver island in Canada's west coast to Alberta over a thousand miles away. It was a move that was very hard as the weather in Alberta is very cold during the winter. As a street entertainer it's more than difficult to adjust to not performing on the streets during the holiday season but perhaps there are better and warmer days to come. My music… Continue

Recently I had a band called Session on Stage.
Last gig we played it was like that: http://www.youtube.com/sessiononstage#p/a/u/0/HOUu8FNZXoQ
We had it for a 5 years and now I dismiss it to continue my ITM-education and to build something more traditional.
There was a funny discussion about that on TSO when some guy found the worst of our recent videos:…

This year has been wonderful. Not only have I been promoted on the job, I also met great musicians online. One is a memorable interview with Fiach Moriarty who recently released an album So I. It was an interview that started after messages in facebook. Fiach echoes what the best in Irish singers/songwriters since Gilbert O'Sullivan and Luka Bloom. Great guy, great sense of humor. Read this interview by visiting… Continue

Irish music is much cleaner than American music. I enjoy listening to tradtional Irish music and the music on LiveIreland #2.

In what has become a yearly tradition, we here at LI give out around this time as to what are the top albums for the Christmas gift giver.
The ones with real trad taste. The gift giver who wants to give something fab---something trad. Does it shock you to find out we have recommendations? Now, it is up to you to find them. Easy. There are a couple that will require contacting the unequalled European distributor, Copperplate and Alan O’Leary directly. Also, think… Continue

Last year my partner and I who are Australians spent ten months in Dublin. We did a house swap and after a couple of weeks decided that when it rained, we would write. The result is our newly released novel 'Lover Husband Father Monster' a critical look inside an apparently happy marriage and told in two voices - his and hers. The protaginist to the story line was the Celine Cawley case where the husband, Eammon Lillis, was being tried for the murder of his successful wife who had once walked… Continue

Those of you who have listened to Sky and Sea
will have to admit Dave McGilton and Aine Whelan's voices work a treat.
Perfect harmony, and then add in the entire Group - Dave McGilton, Aine Whelan, Aine Ni She and Donncha Moynihan - and you have the sound presented to the audience at the Roses from the Heart(r) Concert at the Cobh Heritage Centre in August this year. You could have heard a pin drop as these four musicians gave voice to the song of those left… Continue

Boston’s Joe Derrane has just released his new album, Grove Lane on the Compass label. That is the last objective sentence you will read here on Joe Derrane. Continue
Joe Derrane is the greatest button box player in the history of Irish music. His gentlemanly nature will be totally embarrassed by that sentence, but it is nonetheless true. And, there are some incredible box players in the history of the music. We spoke extensively with him in preparation for this article. Living at home…
