Rest easy my hero, friend and legend of irish music

 

Wishing everyone a safe, healthy and happy New Year!

 

Wishing everyone a safe, peaceful and lovely Christmas, and thinking of those all over the world struggling with life and to all the amazing people whom work over this period in all kinds of settings. 

Here is a little short film to go with my version of "In the bleak mid winter" from my Sleeping tunes 2. Christmas guitar album. 

Hope you will enjoy 

Keep an eye out for the next Facebooklive Sleeping Tunes show will be over the xmas week.

SINGLE FROM THE BRAND NEW ALBUM OF NEW MUSIC I HAVE COMPOSED OUT IN JANUARY*** 

I haven't managed to compose new music for some time, its not easy not having a proper work space or even any space with two very active young kids in a small flat :) Although I know we are very lucky to even have a warm roof over our heads in this crazy world.

I am really excited and delighted to be able to give a preview here with this single of the piece “Forever giving” a piece of music dedicated to all medical staff whom are just… incredible.

Its definitely winter here in Scotland, not snow yet... but getting colder.

In need of some beautiful Christmas music? My "Sleeping tunes 2." is still available on download its a lovely collection played only on acoustic guitars.
