The Road to Tanakagusuku

So I am now an official member of the band “The Islanders” Okinawa’s top Irish Traditional Music combo. We are 5 – Maho incredible fiddler and the best front end in the business – Yokay, also on fiddle and smile, Guitar Tommy, Gerard from North of Belfast on Flute whistle,guitar and vocals and me. We play in the Smugglers in Naha on the last Saturday of each month – be there.

Lament for Limerick

It is a party. We play very fast with lots of howling. The colleens from Naha dance and howl too.  We get free Guinness. Okinawa, Irish bar, drink Guinness, play “The Bank of Ireland” to ecstatic crowd, who would have guessed it?

I feel like Keith Richards

This is how Lady Gaga started

    Looks like you’ve settled in then, though not sure whether you’ve gone native or whether the natives have gone Celtic.
