It was a busy day.
I wanted to get the old Rescue Guitar project back on track after a severe derailing so I got on my bike and tracked down a few good folk who might be willing to pose with it.
Here’s a decent bunch of lads, Hermitage Green, also known to some of my friends as Those Talented Chiselled Bastards. They had no problem helping a good cause, bless them.
They were supporting this fine fellow, Josh Ritter, another thorough gentleman. I met him about ten or eleven years ago, when he played to a crowd in a small bar in Limerick, and it’s good to see him doing so well these days. A fine songwriter and an all-round decent guy.
You’d imagine that would be enough for one night, wouldn’t you? But no. I had one final call to make, this time a rendezvous with the living legend that is Johnny Fean, formerly lead guitarist with Horslips. This guy still lashes out a filthy guitar lick or ten and just like the other gentlemen I met this evening, he was delighted to help out.
Johnny was playing with the terrific Cha Haran Band in Cobblestone’s. A free gig and well worth the effort to drop in if you happen to be in Limerick.
