I was so pleased to be a part of the telling of this wonderful story Late Afternoon – It has been winning prizes and moving audiences at film festivals around the world this past year and has now been shortlisted in the category of the Best Animated Short in the forthcoming Academy Awards (Oscars).. The film reminds us that a world of ‘pure imagination’ is alive in all of us!
Colm was delighted to perform along with a collective of Irish musicians called Street Lights on the charity single “Homeward Bound”, a cover of the classic 1966 tune by Simon & Garfunkel. The single and album were produced to generate funds to assist those in the homeless community. Peter McVerry Trust, Focus Ireland, and Simon Community are the recipients of all profits of the single and album sales, which will go directly to rehoming and rehousing on a national level. You can purchase the song here at your choice of online vendor.
The album is out today and features tracks from Bell X1, Snow Patrol, Saint Sister, Richard Hawley with Lisa Hannigan, James Vincent McMorrow, Damien Dempsey, Luka Bloom, Villagers, Stephen James Smith, David Gray, The Frames, Lisa O’Neill, Glenn & Ronan and Celtic Woman.
