Autumn Masterclasses

The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting longer – life goes on – Heading back to teach in BCFE shortly but I am now also working from home, and available to help students improve their singing, traditional, folk and other genres. One-on-one classes, one-off classes, or a series of classes, tailored to the student who wants to improve.

The next Bandcamp Friday is September 2nd from midnight Pacific Time (that’s 8 am gmt Friday for 24 hours)

If you’ve started to feel guilty about buying music on any other day of the month, here’s something to keep in mind: on Bandcamp Fridays, an average of 93% of your money reaches the artist/label (after payment processor fees). When you make a purchase on any other day (as millions of you have, with close to $1 billion now paid directly to artists), an average of 82% reaches the artist/label. Every day is a good day to support artists on Bandcamp!

Coming up this month…. A concert in Slane, 15 minutes from home which will feel strange for someone who generally tours outside of Ireland.

The Johnston’s Festival, Slane – Sat 21st May in St. Patrick’s Church of Ireland, Slane. Tickets can be obtained in the Tourist Office Slane Phone 041-9824000.

We really enjoyed our trip to the Netherlands – met old friends and new. It was great to be back on stage, although struggling with lyrics was expected! A big Thank you to Koen, Joke, Hanneke and Karin for arranging such wonderful concerts.

Here are some songs from one concert –

June will bring us to England – yay.
