Irish and International Songwriters Guild

Friday, April 8th, 2016

‘…The Irish (and International) Songwriters Guild (also nicknamed The Songbank) believes that these writers deserve higher profile on the international stage and we hope to achieve this by showcasing the very best of Irish and international songwriting talent…’

Big Country gigs in Belfast & Dublin

Friday, February 5th, 2016

Unfortunately, the Big Country gigs in Dublin & Belfast (I was due to open) have been pulled due to ill health with the promoter (and friend Charlie Campbell).

My Irish tour will remain and we’ll be working very hard towards finding replacement shows in both Cities.

Sorry for the last minute issues but I’m sure you’ll all join me in wishing Charlie the best in his recovery.

Thanks
Colin
