Songs in the Quay of Life – SJ McArdle

Episode 6 of The Spirit Store’s “Songs in the Quay of Life” series features me performing songs from my Port song cycle with Carol Keogh (vocals), Trevor Hutchinson (bass) and Brendan and Barry from Kern on uilleann pipes and fiddle.

This was a great chance to give a small taste of what the upcoming live show and album are all about, albeit in a scaled-back, intimate manner. Heartfelt thanks to Derek and all The Spirit Store, all at Live Venue Collective and everyone else who made this happen.

On the video you’ll find a link to donate to charity, and the opportunity was given to each featured artist to select a charity. I picked the Louth Meath branch of Down Syndrome Ireland, a wonderful charity which has had a hugely beneficial effect on our lives, providing services and support to our youngest, Joanie, who herself is rockin’ that extra chromosome!
