REVISITING SOME ANCIENT WELLS!
A few images from some Donegal sites that have inspired some songs..... like
Ancient Wells, Edge of the World, Here I Stand.....
Tonight I’ll be joining with the musicians of New Irish Arts at the Bangor Mission Convention concert to perform a few songs including The Ancient Wells. Then on Monday I’m travelling to Gartan in Donegal ( birthplace of St Colmkille) to join with Rhema Ministries and Rebecca Friedlander on a Worship/intercession tour of ancient Celtic Christian sites in Ireland. Excited. 😁🙏

DANCING......
I stumbled across this on YouTube today. A song I recorded in 2008 in Nashville for a solo album entitled Personal..... one that went well under the radar and is no longer available.
Also features some lovely low whistle by Troy Donockley 🎶😁
