From Switzerland to Germany now Scotland. 

 Our time since the Thai trip flew by!  Culture Night at The Bear Cave Live (the best intimate listening venue in northern Co. Wexford) was a great way to beat jet lag and our first full length gig in our stomping ground. Thanks to Wexford Arts Council, Love Gorey and Dan and Alba at Hungry Bear.

A huge thank you to all who came and supported our Swiss-German tour, first gigs there since 2019 and such a great turn out, not to mention standing room only at Belinda Diskotek for our last  German concert. We are…

Sawat dee kha from Thailand. 

It's good to be back in Thailand after way too long. Our Trade-Off Electrical Training Course started Tuesday 5th Sep. We delayed a day due to greatly increased difficulty getting 5 here across Myanmar. There was rejoicing once they were safely this side of the border. These 15 students are learning well and all that is left now is their practical project tomorrow where they will get to prove they can apply learnt principals in the real. Huge thanks to all who have participated in this event. The funds for…

 With this in mind, and some other medical tests/issues coming along we decided that 2023 needed to be…

Sammy & Kylie & 2023 '?' 

    "Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans.” 

                                                                 - John Lennon.


It’s almost here,  and like many of you we are wondering what shape 2023 is going to take.  World economies running out of control, basic living costs skyrocketing, travel costs increasing and war on our doorstep…it all really does make you wonder.  Both our tours in 2022 (UK & USA) cost just about double what they did before the pandemic.  Almost three years of…

Rev. Sam's Christmas Rant 

It’s nearly here again. This past year I have noticed more than ever a common theme on media sites/newspapers/seats of government and TV. If you say it long enough, and loud enough it soon becomes the perceived truth…even if it is far from the actual truth. Repetition makes a fact seem more true, regardless of whether it is or not. Psychologist Tom Stafford says ‘Understanding this effect can help you avoid falling for propaganda.’ Seems like a good plan, so I got to thinking about one of the great stories…
