National Concert Hall Gig A Big Success
On February 23, Patsy made a special guest appearance at the Comhraigh Ceol Finale at the National Conert Hall; we have reported about this big contest for Irish talent in our February 13 news.
As it turned out, he delivered a stunning performance leaving everybody breathless and the music industry folks checking out the young talents wholeheartedly agreed: "He should have been billed as the headline act!"
Ronnie Drew served as the host and he did an emotional, touching introductory speech while Patsy was standing at the wings; we knew it for too many years to count, but now you know yourself that Patsy and Ronnie are dear dear friends which you do not find 'so' often within the industry.
Our man sang Dublin In The Rare Auld Times, The Ferryman and Flight Of Earls. Pete St. John was in the audience as well and Patsy brought him up on stage for The Rare Auld Times.
This night has seen nothing but winners. The Comhraigh Ceol Finale displayed new and emerging talents and Patsy has proved that his own talent and charisma firmly settle him among the top names in Irish music.
