Welcome to the site!!
August 2013 update
Well there is a new page on the site : Cormac O Caoimh and Colum Pettit. We have been playing some gigs together and the plan is to continue doing so , so you can visit that page and see pics and videos and booking information about our gigs together and news of new things. We will be playing two gigs in October and hopefully a few more. In other news I am delighted to be an offical endorsee of Godin guitars and delighted with the release of the last single from A New season for love last month and all the nice things that were said about it and the plays it got..and had an amazing experience being part of 3 shows at the Opera House as part of 100% Cork.
