Promoting your own music, while a thrilling experience, is becoming more of a challenge to keep momentum going, especially in a country rich in musical talent. Talent such as James Walsh of the Goldfish Syndrome, a fella who inspires us to keep going regardless, as he has shown with his latest offering, ‘The Ballad of Christmas Day’.
Our regular residency in The Widows Bar in Glanmire in Co Cork where Jack ( a dyed in the wool blues man ) and myself a committed folkie, fuse our musical projects in this little suburban city bar, two weekends every month.
We have taken James’s lead and stuck to our guns of being authentic to ourselves and our brand of retro alternative country and blues based music.
OK, we may be vintage stock, road-worn characters, but a growing following looks like our time of attention grabbing is nigh. Slavish devotion to chasing the dollar at all costs was never the reason we took up guitars. Come on down, bring a friend and saviour gutsy bluesy tunes and a welcome change.
