Manor House TY Students 2014

Delighted as always to welcome Manor House students and their teacher Ms Noelle Gallagher yesterday. Their creativity, enthusiasm and energy was infectious. Noelle's TY students are regular visitors to the studio with their annual radio production. Each student presented a piece, with main presenters Orlaith and Caoimhe anchoring the show. Special thanks to Shannon who was my assistant engineer on the day, while also keeping me on track with script continuity!

Thorough preparation on their part, and guidance from their media-savvy teacher resulted in very efficient use of studio time! Go n-éirí an t-ádh libh i gcomórtaisí Gael Linn agus Seachtain na Gaeilge a chailíní!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from Panchord Studio, and thanks to all the talented artists who came my way in 2013!

Started the year with the Manor House TY class who recorded their award winning Radio Programme at Panchord.

The year also saw several projects with Brian McIvor including the Flame of Slane Festival video, and a contribution to the Lyric Feature documentary 'Beethoven - A Musical Tour.

Got to work with some wonderful musicians on Cathy McEvoy's recent recording project (which in turn led to the Kitchen Sink Music Collective gig).

Was also privileged to record a couple of tracks for Mick Fitzgerald's forthcoming album (one of which will be featured on the next Irish Music Magazine compilation.

A fitting and seasonal end to the year came with a location recording of Lyric FM Choirs for Christmas finalists Eden Chorale and their version of 'Sleigh Bells'. 

Looking forward to seeing you all for more creative collaborations in 2014!
