“Inspired by our want to get back out and play as well as wanting to see gigs we decided to do a live album. All songs were recorded in 3 takes or less to maintain energy and enjoyment on our part. Some familiar tunes, some new, and of course meandering jams.
We are very excited to start playing real gigs soon. This is just a small peek into our live show, hopefully it will get you thru’ another 30 minutes of this seemingly never ending limbo we’re all in.
Play it loud, Have fun!” – Darragh William Hansard.
