2020 started out well enough. We played a few gigs, Dan spend a week in Northern Ireland helping to hand doors and do trim work on a friend's house and later drove to Cleggan to jam with publican Richie Newman and Athenry to visit the Diviney family, Owen, Suzanne and their very musically and athletically talented children. Halfway into some great March gigs it all came to a screeching halt.
We had 32 shows cancelled and half of our income stopped, as did many other people and other musicians. We eased slowly back into playing in August through the end of the year with smaller crowds. We did a live stream from the Garryowen Irish Pub. So we had a year of self-reflection, and time to do some practicing on our own.
