With everything that has been going on at home, I didn’t think I would make it out to the various concerts I have had tickets for for months. It was touch and go as usual and I just made it in time for the start, but make it I did to the Nashville Farewell Tour. These guys are incredible, such fantastic musicians, wonderful vocals and they can act as well. Clare Bowen, Charles Esten, Sam Palladio, Chris Carmack and Jonathan Jackson. What a team of performers with almost tangible love and respect for each other. I think they are all brilliant but I do have a favourite, Jonathan Jackson has one of the most amazing vocal ranges I have ever heard. His version of “Unchained Melody” dedicated to his wife, was just perfect.
I have a few pictures and video’s to share. It was a super show and of course now I’m hoping for the “Nashville Reunion Tour” at some point. I’m only half way through series four of the TV show so hopefully I’ll have caught up by the time of another tour!
I love these guys so much, the happiness, the music, the TV show, they have brought so much to our family. This is the only TV show that Mom will now watch all the way through without issue and that in itself is worth millions to me. I’m not that good at taking video’s at concerts but I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
I wish you all a life that’s good with plenty of sparkle xx
There are a few Irish music gigs coming up both in the UK and Ireland over the next few months I thought I’d just list a couple of what I think are really good ones, ones definitely worth buying a ticket for and attending.
I have a ticket to the Birmingham concert, Louise Morrissey has the most beautiful voice. Louise has recently released the Johnny Logan Irish Eurovision winning song “What’s Another Year”, a really wonderful version of a fabulous song.
Michael English kicks of a huge Irish Concert Tour next month in Dublin accompanied by the legend that is Brendan Shine. Michael will be touring the UK again next Spring, I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for the tickets.
A mini tour next March in the UK by a class singer/songwriter Derek Ryan. I try to go and see Derek Ryan every time he is in Birmingham, whether it is a dance or a concert it is always a fabulous night out.
There are some big names from the Irish Country Music scene appearing at The Ryandale, Moy. Ireland appears to be full of Country Music venues and there always seems to be such great bands on. Festival season is coming to an end so hopefully a few of these will head for the UK over the Winter months.
Dancing a Dixie’s is a great night out in Stradbally, Co Laois. Every Friday evening see either established stars, up and coming stars and lesser know singers. Entrance price includes a bar meal and Dixie’s offer special nights from time to time.
Music is my magic potion, it can enhance and improve my mood tenfold, I can escape into the memories, the emotions and the sheer fun of some tracks. Are you a music lover? What is your favourite genre? What track really makes you sparkle?
