“The American audiences come in bit earlier, they are a bit more diligent. They don’t congregate around the bar.”
When you start out to make a record, what’s the process for you and (co-founding member) Davey Carton?
We work mostly in Davey’s house, just hanging around and drinking tea and watching stuff on YouTube. We get together and fire around the ideas. We have some lyrics hanging around, we have some tunes hanging around, and we try to match them up and marry them. It’s a bit like making a jigsaw. And we end up with enough to go into the studio and start recording. The next challenge when we go home in April is to get a new album on the go.
It was lovely, a really nice show. We have a few strongholds of loyal fans everywhere we go. But a few people travel down from all over for an excuse to come to Florida. We met people form Atlanta, Cleveland, Chicago. All kinds of a mixture of Irish and Irish Americans.
