Sunday Music #8

A new song of mine premieres this evening.

Commissioned by the Hawk’s Well Theatre’s Cultural Companions programme, it was written after spending time with Ballincar native Máire Dufficy at the end of the summer last year. You can buy tickets for the show for only €5 and watch it online here this evening at 8 or any time over the next week.

Here’s what I wrote in anticipation of writing the song – and it was a strangely nerve-wracking experience performing it for Máire and a small audience when we filmed the show. A brilliant experience overall though – thanks to Maeve and everyone at the Hawk’s Well for asking me to be involved – and to Máire for being such a star.

Finally, a reminder about the 100-day challenge I advertised last Friday.

It’s beginning on Monday – and the Facebook Group is now up and running.

So if you want to take part, just search for a group named ‘KQ 100-day challenge’ on Facebook and send a request to join. There has been great interest so far and I look forward to sharing the next 100 days with lots of you.

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.
