I have just returned from ‘The Patience of Trees’ tour of Switzerland and Ireland.  Thank you to all who bought tickets in advance, came along, sang along and listened along. Six of the seven gigs were completely sold out. I’ve already written about the magical time I had in Switzerland. (Have you seen the  video from Lake Brienz?)

In Ireland I played Maureens and Coughlan’s in Cork, Whelan’s in Dublin, Roisin Dubh in Galway and Levis’ Ballydehob. It was magic to catch up with so many family and friends along the way. I’m a  little jet-lagged right now and trying to catch up on life so I’m largely going to let these pictures tell the story for now.

I’m only back in USA for a week before I head off to Germany, Austria and Hungary for another 10 day tour.

The Patience of Trees is now available through MusicZone in Ireland now ( as well as worldwide though Bandcamp)/

Thanks for listening, thanks for reading,

Spot the heron. We saw a heron in exactly the same spot in February. Could it be the same heron?
