Dateline Derrynakilla, Bantry, Co. Cork 30 August 2023
Greetings from West Cork where Jean and Mick have set up house and live in service of Oscar the Cat. It’s been a good long while since we’ve update this site, what with Covid, the above move to Ireland and other changes in band members lives.
This is to let you all know that we’ve not disappeared of the face of the Earth, we have not disbanded and that we have some gigs coming up in Colorado. We’ll be performing our orchestra Christmas Show with the Broomfield Symphony on a couple of dates and another gig at the Muse in Lafayette. The details are:
December 2, 2023, 7:00 p.m. The Muse 200 E South Boulder Rd, Lafayette, CO 80026
With the BSO:
December 8, 2023, 7:30 p.m. Legacy High School, 2701 W. 136th Ave, Broomfield 80023
December 10 at 3.00 p.m. Broomfield Auditorium, 3 Community Park Rd., Broomfield 80020.
There will be more info forthcoming but this a wee heads-up.
Looking forward to it.
Our new CD, Wild Orchid, is finally here! You can go to our store and check it out. It's got some audience favorites that we hadn't yet recorded, such as The January Man and some new material that we are excited about.
Big, big thanks to all who donated and/or pre-ordered to help us get this one produced.
