I'm based in Melbourne, Australia. I just heard your song
about the fly on the window sill played on our local
independent radio station of which I'm a big supporter,
(pbs fm) and was so impressed I rang the DJ to find out
what your album was called so I could follow it up.
I love the fact that you're a Scottish band yet use the
Uileann pipes. While I love the bag pipes, I have to be in
the mood to hear them, but I'm always in the mood for the
I was wondering whether there was any chance of you coming
to Australia. March is a fabulous time to come because the
hot weather is dropping off, and there are a myriad of
folk festivals - there's Womadelaide on the first weekend
in March, the Brunswick Music Festival in mid-late march,
the Port Fairy Folk Festival in late march and the
National Folk Festival in Canberra at Easter.
saludos a la buena musica
I thoroughly enjoyed your performance with Aoife Clancy at
Irish Fest in Milwaukee. This was the first opportunity
I've had to hear you, and I'm hoping you'll be returning to
Irish Fest in the future.
I took some photos of all of you during the performance on
Sunday afternoon. I've provided a link here if you'd like
to see them.
Saw you three in Milwaukee on Saturday night. You caught
my ear right away! Thanks for what seems to me your
fresh, interesting and original approach! Aoife's voice
along with you works very nicely. I was on Beaver Island
once 30 years ago. Assuming your boat trip there went
alright, it must have been a quite lovely evening out in
Madison, Wisconsin, U.S.A.
Dear Dermot and Tom,
I first heard your wonderful music at Common Ground on the Hill last year,
bought your CD, and have played it pretty regularly each year. I'm working there
again this summer. You and your music will be missed.
Lieber Dermot, lieber Tom,
ich misch mich ja nicht gern in diese öffentlichen
LobHudeleien... Die Erinnerung an die Celtic Days dort mit
euch zwingt mich zu einer Ausnahme. Euch kennenzulernen
und eurem Konzert zu lauschen gehört zu den schönsten
Erfahrungen, die ich in letzter Zeit machen durfte:
Tunes, wie sie nur Faries flöten, sehr persönliche,
bewegende Songs, alles ganz wunderbar authentisch
vorgetragen und witzig kommentiert... Und dann die beiden
CDs. Die laufen bei mir rund und rund; die Sleeve-Notes
(klasse Dermot!): schiere Literatur! Und ganz besonderen
Dank noch mal für deine Liltings in der Session!
LG aus Hannover
Dear Ones, thank you so much for your gig at the Celtic Days in Hude. Though
having heard only a few songs the sound totally catched me. I am so looking
forward for the CD! Count me in for the next time, Elisabeth from Oldenburg
Your concert just made the celtic days become alive! I
especially liked your virtuos play of the uilleann pipes!
And....your so funny the two of you!
by the way: you really "pipelined the audience" ;)
(as promised on your cd-cover - thanks for signing!)
