I just finished Crazy Dreams
It was a great read.I had no idea you collaborated with so many people especially Carole King that was a surprise.
Looking forward to seeing you and Andy in Vicar st later this month.
Hope this finds you well . Just coming to the end of your most absorbing book , well done . I. kind of feel I have shared the journey a little, buying all the releases since Hard Station right up to the current cd as they came out ,and even back filling the trad lp s , attending a fair amount of the gigs solo or with always superb bands in Limerick , Ennis , Dublin and the early festivals . It’s been always more than brilliant , , thanks
Strange coincidence previous book I read was Miles Copeland s bio !
seems to have some US owner.
Just finished reading your book. What an honest account. You set a high standard. Hope you make it to Galway in the new year.
Peace and Love
I am a relatively new fan but have been surrounded by your music all of my 30 years. My dad always played it in his restaurant in Co Armagh along with Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan and other greats. He has impeccable taste.
I was just in Seattle visiting some friends and got a chance to see Bonnie Raitt. I was praying she would play Not the Only One and she did as her second last song - I had tears in my eyes it was so beautiful! Every time your name comes up my dad boasts 'He stole my pint' as he claims years ago when he saw you live (I think at the Spirit Store) he went to the toilet and when he came back you were standing where he was sitting at the bar and his pint was gone but you were sipping on the one and the same. We always laugh about this.
Anyway, looking forward to your memoir and thank you so much for the music.
Fantastic concert at the Seamus Ennis Center. Night to remember.
and was wondering if you had a better photo that you could photo with a phone and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also lovely subtle duet with Kate Rusby, am great fan, have couple of her albums.
Your own Follow On is a great favourite of mine - great lyrics very emotiona to me no matter how many times I hear them, remind me so much of the happy times I spent for almost 50 years with the love of my life Vivienne before losing her in 2016.
Looking forward greatly to seeing you in Bangor in August.
Regards and best wishes, GergeM
Hopefully catch you again, maybe in Australia 😉
Cheers for the music!
Been a longtime fan. don't know if you remember but I helped with the lyrics of busted loose at your gig in Newry.. My daughter drew a picture of you when she was 7. its on the wall wall faded with the sun.. she's coming on 30..
Coming to see you at Feile gig in Belfast on 7th August.
Maybe the line ups set but could you slip in "Ae fond kiss"
following the beautiful version with Karen Masterson or the Green Fields of Canada?
Also came across the clip of you and the Dublin Gospel Choir doing Dylan’s Forever Young - one of my late wife Vivienne’s favourite songs.. You are in fine voice and look as if you’re having a ball!
Lovely subtle duet with Kate Rusby - I have a couple of her albums.
Can’t wait to hear you in Bangor in August.
What an amazing evening of song and instrument playing. From 8pm sharp until 10.15 you gave the performance of a lifetime.
Wishing you continued deserved success and may we continue to enjoy your wonderful talent..
I wonder if you still have that old Yamaha guitar from '77.
Have a good one.
Hello Paul , listening to your good self since your Holyrood days, Met Liam a few years ago still playing piano. I worked up the street in Big Joe's early 1960s . Music a gift of life . Regards Jim.
Paul forgot to mention that I was at the gig in the stadium 1983 where you supported Eric Clapton and I was a budding amateur photographer which I still am and took many photos of you with piano and guitar at that gig.
Hi Paul ,
I came across you singing the long good bye on Amazon music app and fell in love with your versions Love your voice yours Patricia
radio one tonight played 'paddys green shamrock shore'. it sounds as good as ever, the great mandolin of andy really sets it up. a question; is the song in copyright? the lyrics? my reading online it
Paul, reading your biography and really enjoying it. Long ago, (‘70s?) I attend your one man show in the Project Arts Center in Dublin. It was a small venue, and you sang, played piano and guitar, no one else on the bill or with you. It was wonderful and caused me to become a life long fan. Do you have any recollection of that evening? James.
Found you in my quest for new Irish music. New to me, you've been around a while, I guess. Since visiting Ireland in 2019 uniquely Irish music sounds good to this Californian. You have a beautiful, melodic growl that sounds like it comes along many miles from the heart...Come stateside, as I don't know when I'll be over there again. Good on ya.
Hi Paul, Dromore GFC in Tyrone are writing a book Dromore St Dympna's Club & Parish. It includes a piece about Mollie Brady and unfortunately the photo with it is in a poor condition. I have sent the piece to email@example.com
Hello again Paul. It’s come across a couple of clips on YouTube - Forever Young wth Dublin Choir, you’re in fine voice and look like you’re having a ball! It was one my late wife Vivienne’s songs, especially with the Rolling Thunder Revue band.
Fantastic seeing you with Andy in Vicar Street! Would have loved to have seen the gig with Theo too. Many legends. Thanks for the Aurthur McBride transcription on the site too, putting the evening in nicely.
Hello again Paul, just heard the latest single release - absolutely superb as is the accompanying visual promotion..
Just heard Arthur McBride again after a very long time and am again astounded by the perfection of your voice
Paul, we enjoyed your wonderful performance in the Watergate tonight along with the full house of dedicated followers.
Thank you so much for your fabulous, personal music - so much appreciated and enjoyed by my beautiful late wife Vivienne especially on our times in Donegal - FOLLLOW OO . . . .
Amazing lifetime of work, thank you.. Welcome here kind stranger, what great acoustic playing.
