Just passin’ thru as always…

Hope you are all well?
St Paul was GREAT for us, we loved it. I ought to have some photos, in fact I posted “ a view from the stage” on our site last night…asume you all saw it? It is fun that we can update our own site actually. Assume you saw all the different pics I have posted in the last few weeks. Maybe more to follow.

The “Fionnghuala” remix (see www.myspace.com/theceltictenors) was done during the recording of “So Strong” by Adam van Rhyn, an assistant to Mike Moran. It is kinda wacky, eh?? Never really went further,or indeed was even finished. But, there you go. The squoosh is mine!

We have been having a great time here in the US, an enjoyabe few weeks without a doubt. Dublin Ohio was great fun,like last year. Minneapolis Irish Fest was perhaps even more fun, and more intimate. Milwaukee will be massive I think, ginormous crowds I hear… Chautauqua Amphitheatre is one of my favourite places to perform without a doubt. A wonderful wooden auditorium, covered, but sort of open air, and seats 5000. Wonderful night there. We also are blessed with a wonderful Tour Manager, Matt Svobodny. And we had two free days, and we travelled to his parents log cabin deep in the woods by a Minnesotan lake. When I say log cabin, that is what his family call it… but it is like 5 or 6 bedrooms, built by Matt’s father…a wonderful place to stay…hot-tub, the lot! Amazing. And you would NEVER find it unless you knew exactly where you were going. Quality time had there. I did 10 widths of the lake (lake was about a quarter mile wide) - see gallery pics by James… Matt’s parents are some of the most beautiful people you could ever meet!

Love to each and every one of you, and see some of you in next few days…
James.
