Eamon Headed for the Ennis Traditional Music Festival

Well the time has come for another exciting visit to the Ennis trad festival where we meet up with old friends and make new ones –  playing music  and singing songs all day and night (and we may be have a Guinness or 2,3,4 of course).

I have been to every Ennis Trad Festival from the beginning, back in 1994 –  as my brother Michael ,who is a great piper and singer, started the whole thing. He invited all his friends to Ennis for the week and  got them gigs in 5 pubs. Michael continued to run the festival for the next two years but it became to0 big for one person –  so the committee was formed and the rest is history.

I enjoyed launching my CD, Liverpool Connections, at the festival in 2003.

Last year Tony and I made it to the festival together … but this year I’m here solo and will have to report back on all the fun.

I’ve been told I may be the most photographed person of the festival – see what you think if you search Ennis Trad Fest pictures online…

I’ll send back a report from the festival if I’m able to pull away from the music and get to a computer.

Seacoast HIPPO covers The Port Session

The Seacoast HIPPO, a weekly paper covering ‘What to do from Newburyport to Portland’,  took some time to experience Eamon’s weekly session at The Port Tavern.

After hearing the music,capturing an interview, and enjoying a bit of the craic, they did a nice job describing it all in the June 21-27 issue:
