I should also have included DermotCW who has some very fine videos from recent gigs.

Hi,

Well we don't 'need' to do anything but I thought it might be a good idea to organise another Horslips virtual gig for the date they were due to play the Rory Gallagher Festival in Ballyshannon on Friday 29th May.

Having done two virtual gigs with my own playlist I thought it would be a good idea for us to suggest and the various Horslips admins to curate and agree a new playlist of Horslips videos that would make up a playlist for a virtual gig.

I am sure with some of mine, Daragh's, Taff55 & StefanF's videos over the years plus some of the 1973 National Stadium gig we could put our heads together and come up with a list that would work. Anything that is out there on Youtube is a candidate, my only suggestion would be to include only live performances and not audio only tracks.

I am happy for any of mine to be included and I am sure the others won't object either.

We could also start the playlist with a support act or acts, e.g include a track from Tir na nOg, Scullion, Moving Hearts, Lisa Lambe, Fiach Moriarty or anyone as an intro to the gig, maybe only three or four tracks and it doesn't have to be only one artist. The admins could ask the boys for their suggestions and if Lockyjim or Baz are reading this feel free to make some suggestions, we want something that you guys are happy with.

What do you all think . . .?

John

Another Horslips Virtual Gig 17th March 2020

Hi,

Since Horslips in the Olympia on St Patrick's day has been postponed and it is increasingly looking like most pubs in Ireland will shut (even if they don't we should not be going out to pubs at the moment) I am going to organise another Horslips Virtual Gig for 17th March. The idea is that at a pre-determined time (I suggest 20:30 GMT) we all open the link to my Horslips Virtual Gig YouTube playlist and click play all at the same time.

I mentioned it to Taff55 yesterday when I was still in Derry with no internet but now that I am back in Dublin with broadband I can mention it on Fantasia as well.

It is the same playlist I used in 2017 with 17 Horslips videos I have taken at various Horslips gigs in the last nine years.

It starts with an access all areas look at the sound check for Horslips in Limerick with King of the Fairies and follows that with sixteen videos making up a set list for a virtual gig.

Here is the playlist link.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list= ... FvMDnM-LEgkJlbm_YNVw0g7kE

I am hoping that the Horslips admins might publicise it on Facebook and in the various postponed gig events so taht people who were looking forward to a St Patricks night Horslips gig can at least join in a virtual one.

I hope some of you can join in.

Regards,

John

Sorry you won't make it this year Don. Hopefully I'll see you again further on up the road. . .

Good luck with the surgery but I think you have had more than enough practice in getting over knee surgeries so it won't be a problem for you.

Happy New Year everyone,I am just back from Derry where a Horslips banner still adorns the entrance to St. Columbs Hall advertising the gigs on 14th & 15th March.

Don, looking forward to meeting you again and StefanF, I love the story from Eamonn, especially being accompanied by the actual cartoon itself.

Unfortunate news this week that the exhibition is not going ahead in Derry but looking forward to the two gigs and I will also be in the Olympia on 17th March.

Best wishes for 2020 to all on fantasia, contributors and lurkers alike.

Hope to see many of you in Derry in March.

Hi,

Horslips played two great gigs at the Seamus Ennis Arts Centre in The Naul, Co. Dublin on 23rd and 24th August 2019.
Jim Lockhart, Barry Devlin, Johnny Fean were joined by Ray Fean on drums. Fiach Moriarty played support on the Friday, Paul Bolger played support on the Saturday and Paddy Goodwin joined them for the encore on Saturday.

One video from Saturday night. . .

Back from holidays and finally got my photos from the 2018 Horslips Con uploaded on FB.

Unfortunately the usual option to copy a link to the album so it can be shared with non FB users is not there any more so you might need to find me on FB to see them.

Here is a link to the photos from the Clones Horslips gig that should get you as far as my photo albums where you will find on called "Horslips Con 2018 - Belfast"

Getting close now. Looking forward to this. Under pressure from Taff55 to get my photos from the last CON up on FB. I'll be back home from hols on Sunday so might get a chance on Bank Holiday Monday. They are not really worth waiting for, my battery ran out (too many Belfast Black Taxi Tour mural photos & Crumlin Jail Tour photos) so for some of the gig my camera was sitting plugged into a wall socket while I + 1, RVR & Ronnie who posts occasionally enjoyed the gig.
Still not sure (and looking unlikely to) if I can make the second night. I need to be in work at 7.00 on Monday morning.
Hope to see some of you there.

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone. From the book launch event of Mark Cunningham's Horslips biography, Tall Tales five years ago, here is the first ever public performance of this most appropriate Horslips song for the day that is in it.

Stefanf,

Actually that was a bit of an incomplete song title typo there, it is actually called Mount Street Bridge.

Yes StefenF,

I couldn't resist the temptation of a Sunday afternoon gig a bus and Luas ride away. Really enjoyable evening. Fiach played mainly his own stuff with a couple of nice covers (Golden Brown and A Pair of Brown Eyes were two I remember) and when Jim joined him we got Trouble with just acoustic guitar and flute and Dearg Doom with acoustic guitar and whistle plus a couple more of Fiach's own songs.

Fiach has written some lovely songs and one in particular called Mount Street which he performed with Jim is gorgeous to listen to even though it covers the attack on the Sherwood Foresters at Mount St. Bridge in 1916.

I was impressed enough to buy his two CDs which were on sale at the gig. Had a good chat with Jim afterwards. The boys are off to New York in about 10 days for the gig with Paul Muldoon which apparently is sold out now.

Great find StefanF,

I was there and did manage to video Trouble but haven't got around to doing anything with it yet. Now I don't need to as we have a broadcast quality version here. I might still get to it one of these days.

Thanks for posting this.

Hi,

Some photos from the charity gig in Adamsons's Bar in Clones last night organised by Paddy Goodwin and featuring four members of Horslips. Great to see Charles back on stage.
