I’m delighted to announce a new show that I’ve developed with another Irish ex-pat, Jack O’Leary from Cork, and a very good Ozzie musician mate, Peter Miller from The Gold Coast, who has toured to Ireland regularly…. and he’s the “nearly” bit!…other than that..we’re “all Irish!”
The official description/press release is below, but basically the show is an opportunity for us to reach audiences with an authentic Irish musical experience…not necessarily singing the songs that we are so often expected to sing in the pub scene.. but songs that are close to our hearts as contemporary Irish artist. We take our audiences on a journey of Ireland through our experiences…emigrating, sadness and joy, the madness, the drink, laughing at yourself, love and loss… all sewn together with honest acoustic style music, singing and percussion.

We are performing the show once a month. The first show was at Uki Hall last month, and it was really well received. The second show will be tonight at Tallebugerra Hall (Gold Coast hinterland near Currumbin), and then next month will be in the hills of Byron. It’s a great cultural experience, BYO, sit back and we’ll whisk you away to The Emerald Isle and back.

The ‘NEARLY ALL IRISH’ Show
Through song, story and music, The ‘Nearly All Irish’ show brings to the stage the traditional themes and rhythms of Ireland’s rich culture.

From a land that has touched the hearts of millions across the globe comes a show that has grown out of the experience of two Irish emigrants moving to Australia and an Australian born and bred who has fallen in love with Ireland. Bringing together different interpretations and insights in to a land 10,000 miles away, this is a show that captures the heart of Ireland by depicting it in the midst of the vast landscape of Australia. Three well seasoned musicians capture in music, song and story the beautiful and mystical magic of a country that has sent a message across the world of a unique land full of mystery, legends, music and verse. Songs and stories portraying Ireland quintessence – from emigration to the madness, the drink to the fairies – this show will take you on a journey into the heartland of a contemporary and traditional Irish culture.
The three musicians, Jack O’Leary from Cork, Mick McHugh from Dublin and Peter Miller from the Gold Coast are excited to bring to you this unique show combining each of their personal Emerald Isle stories and music to give their audiences an authentic Irish experience. Whether you are of Irish ancestry, love the Irish brogue, or just love a great night of music and craic – don’t miss this one of a kind show.
