A couple of months ago I got to be a part of something pretty cool. That something was a Niall Connolly tribute album. The brain-child of one Ryan Morgan, this tribute turned out to be far cooler than I could have possibly imagined. Not only does the back of this record read like a list of my favorite people and musicians, but it features a number of very creative re-imaginings of fantastic Niall Connolly songs. Niall Connolly also happens to be one of my favorite people and musicians.
For my part I recorded one of my favorite songs, “A Child is A Child,” with my friend E.W. Harris. If you haven’t heard the final product yet I encourage you to go HERE and give it a listen along with the rest of the record.
As you may know, I have been working on a series of iPad recordings I call: “First World Lo-Fi: The iPad Sessions.” Unfortunately I’ve been living a relatively hectic life since the start of this project and am several songs behind where I’d like to be.
To keep things moving while I slowly work towards recording (what I think will be some exciting) new iPad songs, I am submiting the demo I made via iPad while working up “A Child is A Child.” Go check it out: http://soundcloud.com/eatthatguitarchrismichael/a-child-is-a-child
Those of you who know about Ceol:
I don’t have to tell you how wonderful Wednesday nights can be. Those of you who are less familiar – Wednesday night at Ceol is a really good time. A group of very talented and increadibly friendly songwriters get together and play songs for each other every Wednesday night at Ceol (191 Smith St. Bklyn) Each week a couple of folks get to play a full set of material.

It gets started around 8pm. It is hosted by Mr. Niall Connolly and things like this often happen:
