It’s been ages since I posted any new music video’s from our fabulous Irish music stars and we have had some great new music releases over the past month or so. There are one or two included which date back to the end of last year and which I didn’t get an opportunity to include on my blog.
First up is a couple from Nathan Carter. Last year Nathan held his first Arena concerts, one in Dublin and one in Belfast. Both were sold out and the Belfast concert has been voted as the Arena Concert of the Year by voters for the SSE Live Awards. I recently purchased the Live DVD of the Dublin show and it is absolutely fantastic. Mam, Dad and myself sat and watched the concert and we all sang along. As I had only seen Nathan live in concert in Birmingham the week before I was really buzzing. Below is an extract from the show with the Glen Campbell Medley. Also below is the video to Nathan’s latest song written by Nathan and Don Mescall. Released for Valentine’s Day it has a lovely message of eternal love with a connection to Alzheimer’s. Just beautiful.
Derek Ryan is one of Ireland’s most successful singer/songwriters of the current time. His latest release is a fun offering “Down on your Uppers”. I think he could write a song about anything!
Lisa McHugh had a huge hit last year with “Girl with a Fishing Rod”. This is her latest release “Country Girl”. It took me a few plays and I really quite like it now. Of course the video’s help, I love to see the story unfolding.
Michael English is another fabulous singer/songwriter and last year Michael filmed his first Live DVD at the INEC Killarney. The night was a fantastic success and seeing the clips on his weekly TV show and on other shows, it looks like an amazing night with big bands, Irish Dancing and a great mix of music. Below is the video for “Ten Guitars”.
I hope you have enjoyed this small selection of music, more to follow…
