Gerry O’Beirne, one of my favorite “Savor the Experience” experiences, returns from world travels to California for his autumn tour.
I was beginning to wonder where Gerry O’Beirne had wandered off. Autumn is his usual time to make an appearance and thank goodness I checked an old email address to find, buried in garden tips and baking notes, his 2014 Fall tour dates.
Gerry is truly a unique experience. Across the pond he comes to fill his rental car with guitars of various shapes and sizes and one ukulele. He plays only intimate gigs where the before, intermission and after, you’ll find a very approachable seasoned and highly talents musician and song writer.
His first CD album “Half Moon Bay” was long awaited and hailed by Folkworld as “”A masterpiece”. I can’t argue there. “Western Highway” remains one of my favorites; in which Gerry’s lyrics and vocals creating a great synergy with his original music.
Then came “The Bog Bodies And Other Stories: Music For Guitar” was includes two songs written in contemplation of Oldcroghan Man and Clonycavan Man housed in the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin.
You can get on Gerry’s mailing list or purchase music through Gerry’s website, which he personally maintains: http://www.gerryobeirne.com/
My favorite song “Labasheeda“ is on the “Yesterday I Saw The Earth Beautiful” album
by Gerry O’Beirne & Rosie Shipley. Folkworld called this “An Extraordinary album with innovative arrangements and hauntingly beautiful songs.”
