I'm not too sure many would agree with me, but my hot water bottle is top of my essentials list for touring and recording - you just never know when you'll have cold toes!
I headed to Switzerland on Friday 23rd January, ahead of the Songs from Ireland tour, to do two shows with the wonderful David Hope over that weekend. I took a day out to go skiing before the gang for the Songs tour arrived on the Wednesday. We kicked off the tour in Dubendorf, followed by Schafhausen, Bern, Grueningen and Mels - playing to full houses! The response was amazing, people loved it, and we even got presented with beautiful roses on one of the nights! I managed to squeeze in a guest slot with Duach in Rueti and a music shop gig with Nicole in Ark Guitars, Wetzikon, and a gig with Mark in Kafi Nabedra before it was time to come home! It was an amazing tour! Check out www.nicolemaguire.ie, www.markgeary.com and www.duachmusic.com.
