Ready, Steady, Gig !

Ah hello hello, lovely to see you all again.  You’re looking well !*

*Obviously I have no way of knowing but I BET you ARE looking well ;)

There’s a few things happening in Colemanland at the moment that I’d like to give you all the old heads up on.  Seeing as I’ve been very lax of late with the web stuff (I promise we’ve been busy on new songs and recordings and noodlings of a creative nature) it seemed time that I made a least an effort at turning over a new leaf.  So here we go !

At this stage there’s quite a few newer songs in the set though of course I will still be playing some old favourites as well !  So do try and make a gig if it’s convenient to your home place.  We’re still writing and arranging and planning the recordings for album number 2 and hopefully these will take shape sometime in the not too distant future.


In the meantime, for those of you who love your live gigs, we are soon going to have some mp3s for you.  Back in July of this year I played a gig in a lovely little theatre in Athlone called the Passionfruit.  Begging, borrowing, stealing we managed to put together enough recording equipment and cameras to document the gig almost in it’s entirety.  We’re currently finishing off editing some little videos for Youtube, so once there done I’ll make you aware of their existence.


About the Sophie’s Choice Gig, we think it’s a great cause people so please lend us your support for that one if you’re in Dublin Saturday night:
