Árainn Ceilteach, Inis Mor, Aran Islands - 12-15.03.2015

This is a festival I'll be looking forward to mixing - and meeting up with some old friends at the same time. I fear it might be a tad chilly on Inis Mor in March though, I might take my thermal headphones with me

Na Leanai - Fly & Dodger, recorded at the Bronte Music Club, Rathriland, 27.012.2014

Another video from the same Na Leanai concert, who are the next generation (daughters and nephew) of The Sands Family from Northern Ireland. It admirably shows that the talent has been passed on to this generation, with good looks now being added as well.

I mixed the concert using the house PA at the Bronte Music Club, the recording being taken from the stereo output of the house mixer, recorded on a Roland R-26 digital recorder. The microphones were Beyerdynamic TG-V70d for vocals, Audio Technica ATM 350 on fiddles, Radial J48 DI's on guitars
