Autumn Tour UK/IRL 2014

A busy Autumn ahead with my first tour of Scotland and England – including the Perthshire Amber Festival, gigs in Edinburgh (incl. Edinburgh Folk Club) and also a visit to the Carlisle Folk & Blues Club in Cumbria to support the fabulous Lucy Ward and her band on Halloween night (I wonder should I dress up as a witch, or would that give a bad first impression? hmm).

In addition, I’m delighted to be included on another Roadworks Tours series – this time opening for Carrie Rodriguez (Austin, TX) at The Workman’s Club, Dublin and the Balor Arts Centre, Donegal.

Other gigs include hosting The Lark & The Robin monthly series at McGrory’s, Culdaff. November’s guests will be two critically acclaimed singer/songwriters from Northern Ireland – Ciaran Lavery and Matt McGinn. Ciaran recently launched his 2nd EP ‘Kosher’ to great success and Matt is just about to release his next album ‘Latter Day Sinner’.

Ciaran Lavery will also be joining myself and Seamus Devenny at McDaid’s Winebar, Ramelton on the 14th November.

See all dates here.
