We got back from our trip to Ireland last night. Now we can put the cardigans and jeans away for another while as the temperature is still high here.
We brought back a spear Róisín made from a fine piece of wood she found at Tara. We were there last week for the third annual Feis Teamhra: A Turn at Tara, which this year featured Seamus Heaney, Michael Longley, Paul Muldoon, Colm Toibín, Aidan Brennan, Laoise Kelly and myself. It was a bright afternoon on the Hill and a very moving event. It was also our most successful event yet and augurs well for our plan to grow the event
As another school year begins I have a great sense of accomplishment having worked hard over the last year in the making of two albums, and they're both going to be released in the next couple of months.
Songs from the East Village comes out officially on September 20 when we'll have a public event at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum.
As for Singing in the Dark, the single 'A Woman Like That' comes out on October 4, followed by the album on October 30. In the meantime I'm up to my eyes with work for the promotion of both albums and booking the tour.
