Jane Fraser — The Eugene Song

Here’s another Limerick girl, Jane Fraser.

Jane has lived and worked in London for quite a while now, but we still get to see her live every now and then.

I’ve put various videos of Jane here over the years and this is the latest.  The Eugene Song.

Enjoy.

Reasons to Love Limerick. Live Music

Why I love Limerick.  Again.

You wander into a bar at random and you find this in the back room, just happening.  Does anyone ask you what you want, what you’re doing or where you’re going?

No.  Just take in some of this great music and wander off again.  That’s Limerick City, kid!

Busking at Catdig 2012

Catdig day again.   Can it really be a full year since the last time?  Looks like it.   The calendar doesn’t lie.

I followed these guys with a video camera and it was worth the time.

Andreas Varady Fundraiser

The fundraiser for Andreas Varady’s musical education was a great success for everyone, including the crowds who turned up and donated to the fund, and the Limerick musicians whose generosity seems to be unlimited.  Great praise also to Donal Mulcahy, the proprietor of Nancy Blake’s, for supporting the project, providing the premises and feeding everyone.  I watched Donal tirelessly flipping burgers and gently directing the confused towards the contribution bucket.  And I enjoyed more than one of his delicious offerings, I’m happy and ashamed to say.

The hope and expectation is that other Limerick hostelries will follow his example.

Just to remind you what it’s all about, Andreas is a phenomenally talented 12-year-old jazz guitarist, and this effort is all aimed at making sure that he reaches the heights he deserves.  The gig at Nancy’s was to help him attend Skidmore College in New York but there will be more events.

This kid is going to be one of the greats.  (His little brother Adrian and his sister Beata aren’t too slow either, as you can see).

Here are a few of the pics I took, and also some by Limerick photographers Darren Ryan and Mac Attack.

Here’s a few pics from Darren Ryan.

Jane Fraser at Dolans of Limerick

Jane Fraser did another Limerick gig last night in Dolan’s, but this time using mostly her own material.  Jane lives in London, but brought a damn good backing band, plus a guy from Iceland on guitar.  I meant to have a word with him about the Giant Volcano Weapon but he disappeared in a cloud of ash after the gig.

I didn’t realise the quality of this girl’s songwriting until I heard this show last night.  Get out there and check Jane Fraser.  I’m telling you now: first class.
