Gerry O’Beirne and his guitars are back in the States

Gerry O’Beirne and his guitars are back in the States

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.  

avenueThen 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.

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.”

Yet another blog? YAH!

My background is in information technology, but my passion is ‘real’ life. I have another blog, but there were just too many subjects on it. I needed to move my posts about moments in real life to be savored to its own blog. Write me if you wish. I will respond within three days most times.
