Back on track

Thank you for all your messages of concern about my one day isolation at Inverness Airport while my colleagues kept the show going in Belfast. After a late night train journey and four hours in an airport hotel I was good to go, if a little tired. I was determined to come back with a bang and that’s exactly what happened as my keyboard hit the deck during the opening number. The humour continued where it had left off the night before and the band played on while my Yamaha was retrieved from the floor. The atmosphere amongst the people of Donegal was such that it wouldn’t have mattered whatever had occurred because they had their party hats on here in Letterkenny and nothing could detract from their determination to make this a really great night, as indeed it was. Everyone is so relieved to enjoy live entertainment, band and audience alike, and we put humour at the top of our list of things that we all need in our lives. I have missed all this wonderful stuff during two years of being frozen in time, waiting for that little virus to weaken. The balance is changing and humanity is starting to rejuvinate and weigh up those things that matter most and, luckily for us, entertainment comes high on the list of priorities. Today we move on to Dublin to play Ireland’s foremost venue, Vicar Street.
