I played for the first time in Clontarf Castle last night, I kept the repertoire to a mix of light classical and contemporary pieces as the crowd were international. It’s a nice venue and I can’t believe I haven’t been before.
I love it when I pick up little stories from the audience, and one Italian orthopaedic surgeon told me about Captain Harlock, a cartoon from long ago, whose girlfriend played harp on the spaceship! He was a violinist until he decided there was no future in playing it… but it was great to talk music a while with him anyway.
I’d love to be back again soon.
I have a busy weekend ahead of music making, can’t wait!
