This Saint Patrick’s Day, I return to lovely Kansas City, MO for three shows. First up, I’ll perform at Children’s Mercy Hospital in the morning.

For the afternoon, I return to The Well in Waldo, where I’ve played for the last several years. The Well, run by the successful Lewellen brothers or Lew’s Grill and Bar fame, sits almost a block north of 75th and Wornall. The crowd is fun, all-ages, and just off watching the parade –or the KU game.

In the evening, I’ll head to Hy-Vee in Overland Park –95th and Antioch. Yes, the grocery store is now also a venue for live music and drink. I’m excited to see some friends there, and check out what they’re doing.

See you in Kansas City, all my dear friends!

Feicfidh mé sibh i Kansas City!

If you’d like to host a house concert, or would just like more info about hosting one, just send me an email right now at to request a House Concert Host Guide. Since it’s still early –assuming you’re reading this in April- you’ll likely have your choice of dates to select.

Unboxing the Kansas City Irish Fest Performer Gift Box 2015

Kansas City Irish Fest was amazing, this year, its 2015: FUNlucky Thirteenth year. I had a blast, saw many of my lovely friends at my stage shows, and got to chit and chat with many of my favourite musician friends and heroes.

One of the best festivals of any, ANY, kind in the cosmos, KCIF is very wonderful to its entertainers and beloved guests. Besides all the other wonderful things they do, they always deliver a lovely gift box to the hotel. This year, I decided to open mine and share with my followers on Periscope.

I use Periscope to broadcast my rehearsals, recording, some of my live shows. If you follow my Twitter feed, and have the Periscope app, you can catch them, when you’re not working or the like.

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. 😉
