Waiting is the gift of unexpected time…

So we tried to tell ourselves as we waited by our phones yesterday for the green light to go ahead with our recording session in the Hawk’s Well Theatre.

And one of the lads in the band used the unexpected time to make unexpected cookies. For the band. And I and some others got through some unexpected extra practice.

But despite trying to pass the time productively, we were still waiting.

And then all of a sudden the wait was over. The long-awaited go ahead, followed by a burst of energy and adrenaline that fuelled the recording of 20 songs in less than two full days. Live.

And the videos will look better than the pics. Because that’s how we designed the lights. But here are some pics anyway…the band, the crew, and performers from the first and last songs recorded in the session.

Theme Night #27…the most ambitious yet. Coming your way on July 16.

I'm Kieran and I play piano. Actually I do a bit more than just playing - I teach others how to play, and I write music, arrange it and host/produce shows.
