Postponement of the usual autumn and winter workshops, for obvious reasons.

 

Eamonn is currently gearing up for remote, interactive sessions and plans to follow up these dates with on site visits during the course of 2021, once Covid Level 3 restrictions - or better - are in force...

Eamonn has been busy during the lockdown. He recently completed his first full-length feature, a dream role for an actress over forty. Now the hard part begins, sourcing finances for the project - especially challenging at this time...

Eamonn was delighted to be back in Sligo again this weekfor what's turning into an annual trip (his third consecutive autumn visiting the county). On Wednesday and Thursday, he presented a two-day workshop to adults in VTOS, funded by the Mayo, Sligo and Leitrim Education & Training Board. Many thanks to the participants for making it such an enjoyable experience.

Eamonn also got to hear local ensemble No Crows on Wednesday, who (which?) kindly performed an acoustic "Hey Joe" for him...

Eamonn had a rare night out over the weekend at The Limerick Jazz Festival: two for the price of one, in fact. He introduced Linley Hamilton along with Cian Boylan & The Camden Orchestra at The Belltable; and then, following a short sprint across the city, The Julian Siegel Quartet, upstairs in Dolan's. All very lovely, as was the company afterwards. Speaking of which, back to the podcasting...

Just been informed that the RTÉ lyric fm webpage links have at last been repaired. Eamonn's "Blue of The Night" programmes are again available via listen back - over 2,000 hours of music, going as far back as October 2011.

 

To stream a specific programme, go here and click on any highlighted date within the Programme Archive section (on the right side of the page).

New book done, sanity restored. Happy to put my name to it. Here's hoping the literary agent in Manhattan can find a good home for it - may be remembered for this one...

This month, Eamonn has been presenting workshops to secondary schools in Co Clare.  During the course of sessions - offered through a partnership with Music Generation Clare - participants have used MacBook computers, DJ hardware, Cubase music production software and an iPhone to make their own features, jingles, promos and 15-minute radio programmes.

 

Once the project is rolled out proper from September 2016, single-day workshops shall be provided to Transition Year students across Ireland.
