Up and running in Ireland

Just one week ago we still didn’t know if the Irish tour was definitely on because audience capacities were still restricted. Once this changed we got the green light for this four date tour of the republic, and it all started last night with a mighty response from our rain-soaked audience at Wexford Spiegeltent. We were as pleased to see them as they were us, and their reaction to our show was magnificent. I’m loathe to say that things are back to normal, because they really aren’t, but our place at another festival in Wexford is assured now that we can actually discuss the future. Although I haven’t yet posted next year’s dates on this website I can tell you that we are due to be very busy again as we play catchup after the pandemic. One thing is for sure and that is simply that both audiences and musicians alike feel energised by the return of live music and all the pleasure it brings.
