Taff55,
I am really looking forward to this. I have booked a couple of hotel options for it already.
I hope we will get s bit of advanced notice as to when the tickets will be available. I can see this selling out quite quickly so would hate to find out the tickets were available after they have all gone.
Any idea when they will be going on sale and from where?
John

Fantasia,

Here you go with a link to the YouTube playlist for our #HorslipsVirtualGig2017 several hours ahead of those who are only on Facebook.

I hope some of you will be able to join in later on or if not, the link is going to stay on YouTube indefinitely so you can catch it before you go out tonight or after you come back.

Enjoy,

John

StefanF,

Yes it went well. Plenty of Horslips tracks in the setlist last night. We got King of the Fairies, The Power & the Glory, Fantasia, Trouble, Sword of Light, a great version of Shaking All Over and finished up with Dearg Doom.
We also got The Berlin Wall (Zen Alligators B side) as well a a few Johnny's usual blues & rock & roll tracks.
They included Ramblin on my Mind, Statesboro Blues, Honky Tonk woman, Stone Free, Somebody Help Me & Further on Up the Road.

I am sure there were a couple of other that don't come to mind right now but it was a really enjoyable gig and Johnny was really enjoying it himself.

Digger,

I'll put the actual playlist link up here on Saturday afternoon, earlier than I will on FB, and that playlist is going to be available on Youtube into the future. So you might get to listen before you go to the match or after you come back.

I'll probably make the first track unlisted after a couple of weeks because it is probably something that shouldn't really be left available on Youtube. I just thought it would be an interesting one for people to get a little bit of an access all areas experience with this virtual gig.

StefanF & Taff55, let's just get this one out of the way first but not a bad idea to follow up afterwards on Facebook with a challenge to create another playlist for a gig next March. I'll leave that one for someone else to do.

Regards,
John

Hi,

I just realised I got my US west coast time wrong, that will be 12:00, not 13:00.

Hi,

In the absence of any live full band Horslips gigs these days I am going to put on a virtual gig event to be held on Saturday 16th December 2017 as a Facebook event for Horslips fans to watch a Youtube playlist of a virtual Horslips gig together.

The time will be 20:00 GMT so 21:00 for Digger and 15:00 for anyone on the US or Canadian east coast or 13:00 on the west coast.

The actual playlist link will be shared here and on Facebook about an hour before the event starts. It is just over 80 minutes long.

The idea is that we all press play at the same time and watch together.

#HorslipsVirtualGig2017

All videos are live Horslips performances as videoed by me, usually from the front row, so they give a genuine audience perspective of the gig including all the background noise and chat that hopefully won't detract from the quality of the music coming from the stage.

As an exclusive for Fantasia I am going to let you all know the playlist in advance now in my next post on this thread.

I hope you will all be able to join in next Saturday.

Regards,

John

Sorry StefanF, I am having my own spell of bad memory now, I can't remember what they finished with. Just back in from Robert Plant and I had Tir na nOg last night so Johnny's gig was 3 gigs ago.

I do know that he sometimes plays Little Red Rooster but don't remember it from Friday.

Daragh, is you memory any better than mine?

Here is the one video I took last night. Please excuse the couple of expletives at the very end as I knocked over a glass of wine.

This is You Don't Love Me Baby

Great to meet you there Daragh. A great night is right.

Here are a few photos and I will have one video to share when I get a chance to post it.

Johnny Fean is back in the Dublin area on 14th December when the Johnny Fean Band play Gibneys in Malahide. That will be Johnny Fean & Stephen Travers with Martin McElroy on drums. I hope to be there.

Thanks for posting that video StefanF, and the photos Taff55, it is always great to be able to see some of what you missed when you haven't been able to get there.

Hi,

I finally managed to listen to Mike Brookfield's album in full twice on Saturday and then watched the video above last night. I am very impressed at the quality of both the music and the lyrics. I'll be listening to it a bit more in the future as it is so good.

Regards,

John

Hi,

Just back in the door from the Dublin album launch in Whelans. Mike Brookfield is a serious blues guitarist, I was very impressed. I loved the material they played and got myself an album which I haven't had a chance to play yet.

Eamon, Barry & Jim were all at the gig tonight.

I'll put up a few photos at some stage over the next few days. I didn't take any videos so if you want to see him, get to a gig if you can. You won't be disappointed.

Hi,

Paddy Goodwin and the Holy Ghosts played the latest in a series of gigs in Odd Mollies in Drogheda on 1st July. Paddy was joined by james mackin on drums and Martin Shields on bass. Guest musicians this week were Jim Lockhart, Barry Devlin, Victor Mccullough and Roy Fulton.

Here is one of my videos from that night. I caught a couple of minutes of a gorgeous acoustic version of The Man Who Built America.

https://youtu.be/0cRp_qDz45Y

Unfortunately I ran out of camera battery before the end but even this couple of minutes is worth listening to.

Regards,

John

Great to hear from you too RoryVanR,

Alex was sitting about two feet away from me at the gig and had a shoutout from Pat. We also got an extended King Of The Fairies from Pat mainly because Alex was there.

Keep letting us know where you are any time you have decent wifi.
