14/04/06 | Good Times.

What a bunch!
Here I am with Rory Campbell,Mike Katz and Finlay McDonald backstage at the Cambridge Folk festival somewhere around 2000,they were all playing with John McCusker that year.I have many fond memories of the festival over the years and seeing Mariza (Portugal) 2 years ago was one of the hightlights.

14/04/06 | Ornet Coleman-Belfast.

Before the days of me having video,all I had was an SLR camera.This pic was taken some years ago when Mike McGoldrick,John Joe Kelly,Ed Boyd,John McSherry & Desi Donnelly were asked to jam with the legendary jazzer Ornet Coleman and his band.The lads even named a tune after this.
This is the only pic of the event that I know of to capture the event.
As Mike said sometime later " it was like 2 CDs playing at the same time"and I must admit it was dreadful,I only wish I had footage of the gig so you could hear the sound.Sadly this pic is all that is left.
