On Friday the 19th of February we supported the extremely talented Krista Detor Upstairs at the White Horse, Ballincollig, Cork.
We met for our soundcheck at 7pm and were greeted by two huge smiles from Krista and her husband David Weber, ready to rock. It was a tad daunting as Krista had written a song especially for our group and she wanted to hear what we sounded like. The title of the track is 'Ballincollig to Brooklyn' and we were so blown away by her generosity of song, time and guidance at rehearsals... such a calming influence. We sang a few songs to get the crowd warmed up and then the main event of Krista and Dave didn't disappoint. Her songwriting skills are of the highest calibre coupled with her quick wit she had the crowd begging for more at the end.
It was great to join her back on stage to perform 'Ballincollig to Brooklyn' for the first time to a live audience. A truly magic moment for us as a group and we are grateful for the chance to perform with such amazing artists. The night ended with lots of stories and a few beers..... onwards now to our own rehearsals and future music making.
Thanks for the music Krista and Dave!
