o yes, an international tour again for us, we travel for the cairde festival at the instigation/invitation of our friends stephanie, tony, thorsten and peter from samboeire. they have been visiting our samba weekends in london, joining us in carnivals and onstage, arranging workshops for us in the west of ireland for a few years… so it was with little dispute that we accepted the band holiday opportunity. in a packed but relaxed weekend we made a little outdoor show, a hot sweaty night in the pictured saloon and the next morning a bandstand before we whizz back via knock airport. band sounded fine, and it was nice to play long sets. o yes, there was guinness too, i believe.
