Music for Bláth

Music for Bláth

Colm recently created the music for a wonderous puppet show called Bláth – The Flower produced by the company Branar in Galway. For performance listings, visit the Branar website. Here is a trailer.

A Few Bits from the Weekend

Colm was featured in the Irish Independent‘s Life section today answering questions for A Question of Culture.

Duet dream?

I’d like to join Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue circa 1975 and duet with violinist Scarlet Rivera. She was the violinist around the release of his album Desire. Hearing her playing on that album changed the direction of my life.

You can read the rest of the questions & answers here.

Also, yesterday Colm joined Nadine O’Regan at TX FM for Songs in the Key of Life where he picked some songs that have been important to him in his life.
