This takes me back a bit! Our set list from a show in Wales in January 1990. That must have been a short set. Our debut album was released a few months earlier so we didn’t have many songs to choose from. These days its hard to get us off the stage! Looking forward to getting back on the road, making new friends and meeting old ones, when the coast is clear.

We'd like to wish you and those close to you a safe and healthy St. Paddy's Day.

When I look at this clip, taken from the BBC's St. Patrick's Day celebrations in The Waterfront, Belfast a few years ago, I remember how nervous we were walking out on to that stage to join the Ulster Orchestra for a rendition of one of our most popular songs.

We had done a production rehearsal the day before and it had not gone well. We couldn't hear ourselves and they couldn't hear us. We found it impossible to keep in time with them due to the sheer volume of 65 instruments crashing over us in a tidal wave of sound.

It wasn't until Declan suggested that the percussionist change position and join us at the front of the stage that things came together. We stuck to him like glue! It's not an accident that it's The 3 Of Us that walk out on to the stage together at the start of the video.

Blue is the second song we performed that night. Our own recording had just piano and a small string section. But this was a whole different ball game. I felt like Frank Sinatra when the full orchestra joined in that night.
Afterwards, Declan and I discussed doing some of our own shows with a full orchestra. Then we did the maths!

Happy Paddy's Day,
Brendan & Declan 💚

Laying down a guitar track on a new tune. The piano in Amberville Studio always makes me wish that I had kept up those piano lessons.
