We have just finished off a very enjoyable and successful debut tour in England.
During this tour we saw a lot of beautiful places, theaters and met some extremely lovely people along the way.
Our first stop was in the idyllic countryside town of Settle in Yorkshire. The audience completely took us by surprise and the first two rows even knew the words to some of our Gaelic numbers.
From Settle we made our way to a stunning theatre in Shrewsbury and had a great night in front of a sell out crowd.
The tour then continued on to Stamford in Lincolnshire, before a travel day to Wavendon, where we had an amazing time and stay with the Kirrage family. Their hospitality was truly outstanding and we are all counting down the days to when we can go back and visit them.
With a morning off, we decided we would pay a visit the infamous Alton Towers, which saw more than one member rekindling their inner child. What a day of fun we had and as we were on our way back for sound check, we needed to remind ourselves a few times that we were still at work.
That night we played in a marquee just outside the town and it was again another night to remember, even as the temperature in the tent fell, it did not do anything to the audience’s enthusiasm.
The next morning we left for Nottingham University, where we performed in the campus theatre. A very nice venue to play in and yet another exceptional audience. One member even provided us all with a whiskey to ease us into the second half.
We then finished the tour with two lively gigs in Bracknell and Newcastle, before heading back North across the border, with a huge smile on our faces.
A huge thank you to each and everyone of you that came out to see us and making our first English tour such a memorable one.
We will be back down to see you all again very soon.
