It’s really been a shitty year, if you’re lucky enough to be able to spend it with loved ones, cherish every second.
I won’t be home this year thanks to Christmas, in fact, it’s a year since I’ve been in Ireland. It’s the longest time I’ve ever been away from home.
Being able to share an hour of Irish festive music with you felt more special, an honour. It’s amazing that all these talented people come from our little island. I can’t wait to hear them all play live.
Hope you all have a safe Christmas, thank you for listening all year, it truly means a lot.
