Don’t press me. I would have to count and look up how many times I’ve performed at Kansas City Irish Fest, including the KCIF #1, when we trudged through the muck alongside the Missouri River. Good times.

My shows are scheduled for

  • Saturday, 12:00PM-1:00PM – Atrium Stage
  • Sunday, 1:15PM-2:15PM – Atrium Stage

The Atrium Stage is located inside Crown Center, and is shared with CC-goers without entry to the Festival grounds. So, no ticket is required. Bring your friends down, and get them hooked. Then, take them to the ticket booths to enjoy the rest of the grand festivities!

Feel free to take photos, videos, and audio at the show, and share on Facebook, Twitter, what have you. It will be a free-for-all, for certain. 😉

Cheers!

Tomorrow evening, Thursday 25th June, 7:00 PM CDT (8:00 EDT, 5:00 PDT, 0000 UTC), join me for a live streaming concert on ConcertWindow.com. Toss some requests, or just kick back with your Kool-Aid, Bushmills, Guinness, coffee, or what have you. The show is FREE, yep. So, just snuggle up with your beloved and/or your kids, and enjoy almost an hour of music and laughs. If you hate Irish Music, then, well, be prepared to loath my show.

Cheers and love!

New Video: There’s a Guy Works Down the Chip Shop Swears He’s Elvis

This morning, I recorded and video-recorded my session performing the late Kirsty MacColl’s and Philip Rambow’s “There’s a Guy Works Down the Chip Shop Swears He’s Elvis”. Kirsty MacColl recorded this song as a Rockabilly, and a Country, song. I’ve reimagined Chip Shop as an upbeat Irish folk song.

Please take a look/listen to the video, and let me know what you think. I’m doing more, so I’d greatly appreciate any and all of your feedback.

I recorded with my Macbook Air with video using the Canon 7D.

Instrumentation:

  • Vocal
  • Guitar
  • Percussion: hand on guitar
  • Percussion: foot on concrete floor

Equipment:

  • Microphone: Apogee Mic cardioid USB mic
  • Macbook Air (2013)
  • Recording and Mixing: Apple GarageBand
  • Mastering, Encoding, Exporting: Audacity 3.2

This Thursday, 28th May, join me for another live, streaming concert at ConcertWindow.com. I’ll take requests, and even honor them, when I can. For tipping, I’ll have some song downloads, Skype (or FaceTime, etc.) guitar lessons, maybe even some videos, or a house concert (for those who go too crazy). These will be things not available freely elsewhere.

Heres a bit of my first concert…

Tell your friends, or have them come over and watch together with you. Pour a little Irish coffee, stout, warm milk, or what have you, and let’s make it a party.

Cheers!
