Gig number 1: 13th November
Jonathan has hosted a couple of great gigs recently, both for charity.
The first of which was to raise funds to transport all the instruments that Jonathan and his family are taking to a community in Cuba in a few weeks.
Following a cracking start to the night with Kevin McManamon and his brother Sean, Glen Hansard took to the stage for a couple of songs before asking me to join him for a few more. I borrowed the ginger man's guitar for a quick rendition of a new song, before the legend that is Damien Dempsey took to the stage. The night ended in the wee hours after a lock and a serious sing song in Ranelagh. You never know what the night will bring!
Gig number 2: 4th December
The next charity night was for the Capuchin Day Care Centre with Native Oak and Kieran Mulvihill playing a set each. The night was a huge success, raising €700 and I joined Kieran for a couple of songs and played Lilacs too.
