News for June and July!

HAPPY NEWS! As many of you know, teaching Irish myth and folklore has always been a big part of my concert schedule and I’ve been leading tours of Ireland for some time as well. Both passions have informed just about every song I’ve ever written. In 2015 I will be doing more of both! I am delighted to announce that I have been invited to join internationally renowned Rick Steves’ Europe and lead group tours of Ireland this June and July.

As a long time admirer of Rick Steves’ PBS travel shows, his books, and the ethos of his company, I am proud to be part of the RSE team this season. I just spent 10 days with their top-class travel experts, tour guides, tour managers, and staff in Edmonds, Washington. Now I know first hand that they treat their travelers with great respect and care. And they really do “handpick” their tour guides – an elite team.

Here is a link to a recently taped RSE “Test Drive a Tour Guide in Ireland” presentation hosted by Pat O’Connor (author of the Rick Steves’ Ireland Guidebook). I am a guest on the show along with fellow guide Dara Herlihy of Dingle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cuu-PuqVV8k&index=6&list=PLwTQPWHcUfhRG1B66lkoxjQjvD5-zoa7D

I look forward to this new venture and will keep you informed along the way. Be assured I’ll still be touring and making great music with my band! You can find our concert schedule on the Tour page here or on my FB page (links for both are above). And I’ll be announcing my own Ireland tours for 2016 at year’s end.

Thanks so much!
