About this project

"Together" is the title for the new CD from Tom and myself which we are planning to launch at Fiddlers Green Festival at the end of July 2017.  We're really excited about it - it's nearly all our own songs and we love how they're sounding.  

The themes of the songs reflect very much where our lives have been over the past couple of years -  stories we have picked up along the road, lots of political comment (!), a bit of fun in some of the songs and lots of choruses of course.  

Adding to our guitar, percussion and vocal base, we've been joined on this recording by a lot of our very good friends here in Rostrevor.   Steve Cooney has added his wonderful shimmer on guitar, John Fitzpatrick has done some great fiddle work, Brendan Monaghan as always is fabulous on whistles, Nuala Curran's cello playing will make you cry, Ben Sands came along with his mandolin and Colum Sands added double bass and concertina.   And last but not least my singing group Singmarra have added their voices to one of the songs which I wrote in memory of one of our members.  

We are almost finished recording now and are doing this crowdfunding project to help us promote the album and extend our reach a bit.  We intend to do more touring here at home in Ireland as well as in UK and Europe in the coming years and have engaged the services of Pat Tynan to promote the CD to radio stations.  

We've lined up some rewards here at the side and over the coming weeks we'll add some of the tracks for you to hear a preview of the album.

Looking forward to having you on board

Best wishes

Fil and Tom 

Risks and challenges

Hopefully none of this will happen, but while we can't see into the future, barring any disasters or more illnesses, the worst we can see happening is that the release of this new album would be delayed by a couple of months. However, as we have the album more or less completed that is unlikely

Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing funding platform. In other words, if we don't reach our target we don't recieve any of the money you have pledged and obviously you don't get charged. In the event that we don't reach our target, we will still launch the album but unfortunately we won't be able to do as much promotion as we would like to.

We'll keep you posted as we go along and if there are problems you'll know about them as soon as we will.
