Michael Dwyer Festival 2018

Michael Dwyer Festival 2018, this year was the twentieth anniversary of the festival and the weather was absolutely fantastic. Musicians came from near and far and lots of great sessions were to be seen and heard.

On the opening night Two time Polka gave a cracking gig in the Lighthouse bar, every body was up dancing within a few minutes.

Watch a video from the Friday night in the Lighthouse bar here, Two Time Polka

On the Saturday lot’s of things were happening, and I guess there are photos taken but that was not my job, we had some enjoyable pints out side the bars listening to a few bits of music between.

Sunday we were away bike racing, Neil got fourth…

On Monday night we went up to Jimmy’s for what has become the unofficial closing night.

and were treated to a song by Sue…

Watch a snippet of Sue’s song here, turn up the sound

Allihies Mines Hack

Allihies Mines Hack¬† –¬† Laurenzia and Salvador
Laurenzia takes a hack up through the Allihies Hills to see the old Allihies Mines left over from the 1800’s. Salvador the Irish Cob was a little reluctant but they had a good time. The film was made with a Fuji Camera and a DJI drone. I rode my bicycle ahead of them to get the different shots.

Making Short Films

Making Short Films based on fiction is a time consuming activity. The more people involved the longer it takes. The film in question is “Caillte” based on an idea by Carina Jeisy. It will be around 8 to 10 minutes once it is finally finished. We won’t be able to publish it here as we are hoping to enter the film into a competition. The idea of entering the competition is to try and keep the motivation.

Edit:

25 March 2015, just been accepted for the Fastnet Short Film Festival in May, delighted.
