martin brunsdenCarrick on Shannon Water Music Festival was Fab. The sun shone and Martin & mesel played for the first time together as a duo to a lovely crowd on the ‘Moon River’ Boat up the Shannon river! Cool gig! Harp & Double bass is a great combo.

We’d talked about doing a gig together for a long time and got the chance at the start of the year as part of the Temple Bar trad fest. We, along with Robbie Walsh on bodhrán and Vladimir Jablokov on violin, had a show called ‘The Magic of the Harp’ at The Ark. It was a great success and it is something I would like to do more of-shows with harp at the centre for a younger audience.
