Notes from the Road : Lúnasa Newsletter June 2016

Hello folks, how’s the summer treating ye so far? Things are heating up weather and gig wise for us all as we head into three months of festivals, concerts, recording, album launches, music camps and various other shenanigans around Ireland, Europe and America. Cillian and myself are literally just back from a tour of Germany along with finger picking guitar supremo Jens Kommnick. What an incredible experience that was, the finest of gigs, the loveliest people and the worst of food (first time in McDonalds in 20 years)


BIG BIG NEWS !! Cillian has released his first solo CD !! Ravens Rock will be launched next Saturday night at Pier A in NYC. This is going to be a major event with numerous guests appearing including myself, Colin Farrell, Jason Sypher, Patrick Doocey, Ryan McGiver and many more I’m sure.

The CD is also available for purchase and download at


Following Cillian’s big night we’ll be Zig Zagging between Ireland, Italy, US, France, Germany, Switzerland, Alaska, and Spain.


Between the gigs we’ll be doing some recording, some teaching, some sessioning, some swimming, some running, some biking and some food and drink sampling. All of which help to make for a varied and enjoyable summer touring period.

Would make the world of difference to see you at one or more of these fab festivals or concerts so check out the dates below and cross off some time in the diary.

See ya soon
