The Road to my Second Solo Album! Final Blog by Enda Seery

With the release of my new album just a week away, this will be my final blog update. The album will be available to buy from from next Monday, April 1st (not an April Fools!). The first launch will take place at Áras an Mhuilinn, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath on Friday, April 26th @ 8 30pm. Before the first launch, the distribution of Síocháin na Tuaithe will have started with the album being distributed through the usual main traditional Irish outlets. 

The first launch is going to be a cracking night of the best of midlands Irish traditional Irish music, song and dance. Take a look at the guest list. (I'm excited!)
