|Templebar Tradfest 2012|
We are still reeling after a very successful gig at Templebar Tradfest, 2012. We were delighted to get the opportunity to perform on the main stage of the TempleBar tradfest. Although the weather was somewhat unfortunate it didn't stop the crowds from joining us on the street and dancing in the puddles! I would like to thank the very talented bunch of musicians who joined me, James Hogan, Lorraine Devrey, Eamonn Moran and Eddie Kavanagh.
We are also delighted with the growing numbers who are joining us on our new facebook music page. I really appreciate your comments and support.
It has been a busy few weeks since. We have all had to take a little time out from live gigs to work on other projects. I have just finished working on the choreography for a Pantomime Humpty Dumpty. The show ran for five nights, finishing up last night and was a great success. Congrats to all involved and thanks to the wonderful children who worked very hard on their various dances.
Now this morning it's back to work and lining up new songs and shows.
Look forward to seeing you all on the road again soon.

|Happy New Year|
A very Happy New Year. I hope I find you all well and wishing you all the best for 2012.
2011 was a great musical year with many highlights including gigs across the country and a lovely review from a surprise music critic at a gig in Christchurch Cathedral in Waterford. One of my own songs was featured on TV3 Television which was exciting. The summer brought a video shoot with Irish band Drua - we recorded our showreel live which was launched on the site here in October. Thanks for the kind words and responses we received. I was fortunate enough to have radio play on various stations and was approached by radio station in Denver Colorado who offered to play my music. Thanks very much to the presenters and station there. I have written some new songs and I look forward to sharing some of this new material soon.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has come out to our gigs and shows for supporting us in our musical endeavours.
Who knows what 2012 will hold but I do know that I have enjoyed the various opportunities that I've had to sing to date. I have many dreams that I would like to fulfill in my life and thanks to everyone who has allowed me to make this one a reality.
I wish each and every one of you a very healthy and happy 2012 and I hope to meet you along the way.
All the best.
|Emer & Drua in Cobblestone Back Room Venue, Dublin on Saturday Nov 26th|
Delighted to announce next gig for Emer Dunne & Drua in the Cobblestone Back Room Venue, Dublin this Sat Nov 26th. Special guest act is the talented singer and songwriter Helen Smits. Doors at 9pm and tickets on door are €10.
We are delighted to be back gigging. We were forced to take a few weeks out due to my knee surgery. However, I'm making good progress, I've now abandoned the crutches and although dancing is forbidden for a few more weeks, I am looking forward to getting back on the stage and singing.
We are really looking forward to this Dublin performance and we hope that we will see you then.
Really enjoyed a great chat with Mr.Keith Shanley on Midlands 103.5FM yesterday morning, thanks Keith & Emma. Hopefully we'll meet again soon.
Last night, I had a sneak preview of our new video shoot, which was all recorded live, to be launched here on the web very soon - excited : )
The new gigs list shall be up very soon. Thanks again for the lovely emails. We have received some very nice messages through the web page and we love to hear from people so please continue to keep in touch.
That's all for now folks.
|Recording, gigs and TV3|
I hope you are enjoying the sunshine!
I was recording vocals yesterday and it was very warm in studio - but hopefully it will be worth it : )
Really delighted to have my song 'Untold Story' featured on TV3 during the week. Thanks to all for the kind words and emails I received. I am currently also writing some new material and this is going well.
News with Drua, well the lads are tied up for a few weeks with college exams and music study but not to worry we will be back on the road again shortly. We are looking forward to performing in Athy Arts Centre in
Co. Kildare and in Christchurch Cathedral Waterford among other performances.
All the best for now.
