Martin Byrne Music Live @ Beaumont House
One of the many things I love about writing with Culch.ie is that when you hit that gig that’s not the main stage at Electric Picnic; and some dude is really just eyes closed and loving every sound he makes. More than that the may be 12 and a half or 72 people in the audience are loving it, or not, but he’s good and maybe the pub has given him a ‘sure come in and we’ll see how ye fare’ type gig.
In that those who have done the tough gig slog, the kodalines and others of this world included, know exactly what I’m talking about. And whilst life on the road can be a little rugged it is nice and appreciated when you realise your music in writing was appreciated.
One that caught my eye some time ago was Martin Byrne and fair to say I’m a bit of a fan. On Saturday, July 6th he played The Beaumont House pub. The audio I nabbed as a by the way, is a little slow, but my by Christ on a bike Almighty, or words to that effect, Galway to Graceland is one absolute gem that I am so glad I managed to catch.
