Hello and warm greetings from Ben Sands in Ireland, in November!
The Autumn is making way for the arrival of Winter here - but so far the weather is mild and dry ... so far!
Many thanks for joining my mailing list here on N1M - to my shame, I have been neglecting this list of late. My apologies. It has been a busy and productive year to date, with most of the touring completed. One more week abroad, beginning on Tuesday next, in Germany. Then a few concerts with my siblings - The Sands Family - in Ireland. And THEN - a little bit of well deserved hibernation, methinks!
I just released a new CD of children's songs, made with the help of schoolchildren on both Ireland and Germany. That was a lot of fun!
Please feel free to drop me a line to ben@link I would love to hear from you.
Warm greetings to you all from Ben Sands in Ireland, as Autumn draws upon us!
I just returned home after almost 6 weeks on the road - four in Germany and two in Britain.
Wonderful gigs, wonderful people and plenty of stories from great folks along the way ... including a great chat with a pioneer of the folk scene in Wales, who once booked Paul Simon at his club for 5 pounds!
Next up is an Irish tour with sister and brothers - The Sands Family - beginning next Wednesday.
