There is a big upcoming collection of Irish music from New York City. It's being organized by the Irish Traditional Music Archive in Dublin and covers NY-based musicians over the last century. I'm very excited to see what they've pulled together in collaboration with NY legends like Don Meade.
ITMA invited me to say a few words for a promo video. Here it is!
This was filmed and edited by Iarfhlaith Ó Domhnaill along with Alan Woods and Adam Girard. I'm amazed at the kind of videos that a small, talented team can make these days. It feels like a completely different world than even ten years ago.
Thanks also to my dad James Gurney and The Yanks for the sketches and footage used in the video.
