I’m looking forward to playing with Belfast singer Ursula Burns as support at Barry Douglas and Camerata Ireland’s concert which takes place on 3rd August in St. Peter’s Cathedral in Belfast. We will also have Ciara O’Neill and will do a set from Ursula’s fourth album ‘Deep in the Dreaming’.
The new band formed by myself and Mark Carmichael will be among the entertainers at The National Trust’s ‘Tartan Sunday’ at The Argory, Derrycaw Rd, Moy, Dungannon this Sunday 24th July. Some members of St. Laurence O’Toole Pipe Band will also be performing. The event is an annual celebration of all things Scottish.
On 12th July I had the honour of piping at Aras an Uachtarain for the President’s annual 12th of July party. The weather was beautiful and it was great to play alongside Pat Treacy, Liam O’Flynn, Emmanuel Lawler, Conal Duffy and members of the RTE Symphony Orchestra. It was an extra special occasion being Mary McAleese’s last such celebration as President.
