     The Birmingham International Tattoo is always an exciting and enjoyable event and this year's was no exception.

"Seven Drunken Nights-The Story Of The Dubliners" takes us through  50 years of Ireland's most famous folk group and is a great feast of nostalgia,...

    "Van The Man"
    Today marks the 78th birthday of Northern Ireland's legendary singer/songwriter, Sir Van Morrison. It was great to see his headline performance at Birmingham's Pairc Festival on Saturday night and an honour to have the opening slot on the indoor stage. A blessed and happy birthday to "Van The Man" and thanks to him for the years of pleasure that his music has brought to so many.
