New Orleans Dixieland Jazz at Halloween - USA Travels Pt 2

June 11, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
So American Travels Part 2 After a few days visiting friends in Mobile and before heading to Memphis we stopped a few days in New Orleans. It was Halloween and from all accounts New Orleans is a party town at the best of times but Mardi Gras and Halloween are extra crazy. It didn't disappoint. All day every day the streets were filled with people...

Some American Travels - Part 1 - Montgomery Alabama

May 30, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Last year I was able to visit some of the southern states of America in the run up to the Presidential Election. After flying into Atlanta, Georgia the first stop was Montgomery Alabama. In 2016 it was a very quiet town but it has a remarkable history. From 1954 to 1960 Martin Luther King Jr was the pastor in the Baptist Church on Dexter Avenue (Pi...

The Hags with the Bags

September 23, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
One of Dublin's iconic statues and Ireland's ability to not take itself too seriously. The Hags with the Bags on Dublin's Lower Liffey Street, just over the hapenny bridgeon the north side of the liffey. I think this image captures how the role of women in Ireland has changed over the decades.

Carcassonne, France

September 20, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
Back from a few relaxing days in Carcassonne in the South of France. Very laid back city with loads of history and only a direct flight (from everyone's favourite airlaine) away:). The locals were very helpful and friendly. So much so my dreadful french wasn't an issue. I'm sure my French teachers would be either hanging their heads in shame or lau...

New Website Design

July 20, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
Hi all Well, I have been locked away in a darkened room for many nights revamping the website. (Sometimes scratching my head like the little guy on the left) The work is finally done. It is now easier to navigate and should be overall a more enjoyable experience. If you have a few minutes please come and have a look around. Click on the picture be...

Eric Clapton 70th Birthday Shows at The Royal Albert Hall

May 29, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
I was lucky enough to get tickets for these shows. Eric has been saying for a number of years that he will retire when he is 70. He looked like he was having a lot of fun at these shows so it's kind of hard to believe but you never know. The Royal Albert Hall is always a fantastic place for a gig and didn't disappoint. Click on the image below to...

Dom & Dorte Kelly Family Fundraiser

April 13, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
I had the pleasure of attending a fundraiser for friends of mine that have had a hell of a bad run of luck. In typical musician fashion a gig was organised to raise some funds to help repair their house which has been infested with a fungus that's not covered by their insurance. This is just one of the issues they have had to deal with recently. Ov...

Vintage American Cars in Cuba

February 02, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Yes, inevitable, predictable but still fascinating to see cars made over 50 years ago being the main form of transportation in Cuba and particularly Havana. You will see Fords, Buicks, Pontiacs, Chevrolets, Desotos, Cadillacs and many other vintage American Muscle cars from the 50's & 60's. Some barely held together some lovingly restored. You will...

Havana, Cuba

January 20, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Just back from a trip to Cuba. The spiritual home and final resting place of Che Guevara. Fascinating place. It is like Ireland about 40 years ago with sunshine and palm trees. Every where you turn there is a picture. Hopefully I captured something good. The first few I am putting up are from the city of Havana. If you click on the picture below it...
